I am Deborah Sandoval, a decedent of the Tewa Pueblo people of New Mexico and the native ancient Mexihka Toltec people of Mexico where I was born. I am the founder of The Native Shift which is an online Pueblo and Calmecac (community & learning institute) where I teach the ancient practices of my ancestors and combine them with modern day wellness for a holistic approach to shifting and creating a happier and healthier life.
I am a Lifestyle & Health Coach, Reiki & Energy Practitioner, Fitness Nutrition Coach, entrepreneur, Medicine Carrier, Native Dream Guide and a practitioner of my ancestors ancient practices of healing, manifesting and empowerment that have been handed down through our oral tradition for thousands of years. I refer to myself as the "Awoken Curandera"as I have evolved over the years so has my practice.
Through my life experiences, training, education and the teachings from my elders and my maestros/maestras (teachers) I have evolved my practice over the years.I have been a entrepreneur all my adult life and started my practice as a "Sobadora" (therapeutic massage therapist)in the early 90s. I started training women in 2005 in health, fitness and nutrition. I have practiced healthy living, empowerment, self-development, indigenous living, fitness, goal setting, dream planting, manifesting meditation, and the native practices from my lineages for most of my life.
I am a practitioner and Temachtiani (teacher) of my native Mexihka ancestors of Mexico where I was born and my native Tewa Pueblo ancestors of New Mexico sacred ancient practices that have been taught through our oral traditions for thousands of years from parent to child and teacher to student. Some of the practices fall under the sacred body of knowledge that has been called Nahualism. The Art of I, The Spirit Within Me, The Limitless One, Creating the Highest Potential of Self. These teachings can help create a shift consciously in all areas of our life. Some of the practices can help us to command the movement of the day so that it doesn't command you. By using some of these practices along with modern day wellness we can empower and train ourselves consciously and subconscious to help manifest our vision boards, goals, affirmations, strengthening our bodies and help us create a life we dream of.
I love sharing and teaching. My practice addresses wellness as a whole, creating a holistic approach to living a healthy happy lifestyle by creating shifts in mind, body, spirit and nutrition. I am excited to build my practice and help heal the world one body and soul at a time.
My Experience & Education I have over 25 years experience in health, wellness and nutrition. I started my practice in the late 90's providing first Sobadas with Platicas (therapeutic massage therapy & cleansings) to the community. What matters most to me though is if I inspire you, will you fit into our community of amazing women and if there is a connection between us :)
