Celeste • Owner, Light as a Feather

Celeste is a certified Reiki master, yoni steam practitioner, full spectrum doula, audio influencer, yoga teacher and wellness coach. Her women’s wellness business, Light as a Feather, is on a mission to reclaim and empower women’s connection to their sacred space, womanhood, and female energy. Here’s what Celeste – who has lived here for 25 years – had to say about being black in Denver.

What does it mean to you to be black in Denver?

To me, being black in Denver is a beautiful reflection! It’s continually being in awe of other black creatives, entrepreneurs, healers, hustlers, and scholars as we hold space for each other to be our most creative authentic selves. It’s like, “look at all my peers out here moving past comfort zones, creating, shifting paradigms, sharing our gifts with the world, being inspirations for others. We lit!”

What do you love most about living in Denver?

Denver is home for me and there’s no place like it! I love to travel and see the world, but Denver will always have a special place in my heart.

Tell me about your business.

Light as a Feather is a women’s wellness center that uses education and alternative healing practices to empower women and femmes in birthing their lives to full wellness. I teach a monthly yoga class, Yoni Poppin Yoga, a sensual yoga class to liberate the pelvic floor and connect to the divine feminine. In 2019, I will have a relaunch of my online store and a brand new podcast “Honey Pot Alchemy.”

Celeste has a lot in store for Light as a Feather and the community she’s growing in 2019. Keep an eye out for her yoga classes, yoni eggs, waistbeads, and apparel!
