Hi, nice to meet you!
My name is Dorit Palvanov, I am a mom of three girls, a wife and an embodiment coach for women.
What the heck does this mean?
Great question! 😉
I help women to embody and cement the notion of self-love and self-care and thrive in their female bodies so they can experience true joy and fulfilled lives.
My clients are often women who feel dry, unsatisfied, unaroused, disconnected, anxious, lacking joy and happiness, disoriented, confused, can’t make decisions that they feel good about, constantly doubt themselves and feel like they are wasting their human potential.
Now, let’s be honest if any of the above sound familiar you’re not going to die.
I’m sure you can think of women in your life who are living inauthentically, not true to themselves, have a poor relationship with food, their bodies, their marriages are fine, their relationship with their kids is fine, they hate their jobs but still stick around. You get where I’m going with this.
All in all, they’re doing FINE.
Well, I am DONE with being fine.
I am DONE with being in survival mode.
I am DONE with just existing.
I want you to thrive! I want you to live the life that you were destined to live!
Not long ago, I was one of these women and figuring out my life became kinda urgent once I became a mother. Also, because I am a mother of daughters I felt like I have a tremendous responsibility for the next generation to sort through my own shit so that I don’t pass it on to them.
Feeling fully expressed, authentic and true to yourself CANNOT happen if you are not connected to yourself (or your body).
I help women feel more connected to their bodies physically and emotionally so that they fall back in love with themselves, own their true feminine superpower and raise their families from a place of fierceness, trust and strength as opposed to weakness, self-doubt, fear, and self-neglect.
Very often women disassociate physically or emotionally (sometimes both).
Whether it’s a physical disembodiment/disassociation (i.e. these women would have something like body shame, body image, criticizing their physical appearance constantly.
They say things like: “I hate my arms”, “I hate my butt”, “I hate my neck”, “I feel like a stuffed up sausage”, etc).
Or an emotional disembodiment/disassociation where women really dislike themselves and question their place in the world so much so that they often numb their feelings with external substances like alcohol, recreational drugs, gossip, TV, social media, or the most common one, where they have a tendency to “eat their feelings”, so things like emotional eating, binge eating, overeating, etc.
I work mostly with mothers of daughters because I’ve noticed, over the years, that this relationship dynamic is extremely impactful in how we view ourselves as women.
We learn about our roles as women, wives, and mothers in society at home by seeing and observing our own moms, grandmothers, or other women who helped to raise us and often we, as girls, grow up to inherit their view of themselves, their bodies and their relationship with food.
Sometimes the mindset and self-sabotaging habits are so ingrained in us that even though we understand where we got them from it’s extremely difficult to change.
This is where working with an embodiment coach comes in extremely handy.
I take a woman who feels completely disconnected from herself and in a span of six months help her to experience complete transformation so she feels joyful, happy, full and connected again!
She becomes embodied.
Healing is work and in the beginning, we need someone to hold our hand and show us the way.
Also, as a mother of three girls, I can relate on so many levels to a mother who’s raising a daughter and wants to break free from generational patterns that repeat over and over again in their mother-daughter lineage and raise this daughter to become more of who she is.
Having said that, not all women are mothers but all women are daughters, so these concepts would absolutely apply to all women, not only to mothers of daughters.
My Big Why
My message and heart are in helping women understand that self-love and self-acceptance is KEY when we are raising children, and especially daughters and I believe that as mothers this is how we can change the world.
One mother, one daughter at a time.
It all begins at home, which is why my company is called Health Begins With Mom.
So often, as mothers, and women really, we are the ones who bring the message of health into our homes and it is our job to enroll our loved ones into our health mission.
When a woman feels connected to herself and her body, what often happens is a ripple effect. All of a sudden you become happier, more joyful, more fun to be around, and all the other areas of your life thrive together with you.
Join me weekly over at the Health Begins With Mom Podcast where I bring on guests in the field of mental health, psychology, nutrition, health, and anything related to the family. This is also where I share some of my own insights about women’s health, motherhood, parenting, marriage, wellbeing, femininity, cycle-syncing, phases of the moon, and much more so we can learn how to thrive in our lives as women, wives, and mothers.
You are also welcome to join my Closed Facebook Group where we talk about stuff like this and much more.
