Cristina Schooler
The Rooted Method is at the intersection of Mother Nature, neuroscience and feminine embodiment. It is my belief that with a relationship with these three pillars we lead lives of deep power, connection, passion and trust. At the heart of The Rooted Method is community and I bring in guest facilitators, coaches and other dynamic entrepreuners into my programs so you can be supported in your dynamic journey back home to yourself.
