More About Camilah
Camilah Hicks, founder of Heart + Third, is an RYT-500 yoga instructor, meditation and pranayama leader, Reiki Master, sound therapy advisor, crystal energy practitioner, clinical aromatherapist, herbalist, facilitator, intuitive tarot reader, maker, dog mom, and all-around believer in the magical, mystical, and unspeakably beautiful.
Camilah was born and mostly raised in Kansas City, Kansas. (Yes, there are two Kansas Cities, KCK, and Kansas City, Missouri.) Growing up in the lesser known of the two, she knew she needed to see and experience other places and things. This led her to New Orleans for undergrad, where she majored in Psychology. Being completely unmoored after graduating, she went back home to attend graduate school. Camilah earned her Masters Degree in Social Work. She believes in self-care, social justice, and most importantly universal love.
This led to extremely purposeful work, a deep belief in social justice, and ultimately burn out. Needing to pivot, Camilah found herself working in higher education, with jobs in California and Atlanta, and a corporate job in Washington, DC. Feeling like she had unfinished business, Camilah felt the call to return to NOLA, where she currently resides. The one constant in all the change has been yoga.
By holding safe, sacred space for deep transformation, Camilah uses movement alchemy, energy transmutation, spiritual health guidance, and good old common sense to craft sessions/products that hold the client in the deepest regard.
