BELLA FLOW 

   Bella Flow, emerged from the landscapes of northwest Montana, where the beauty of the Northern Rockies became the canvas for her life’s journey. Immersed in the wonders of rivers and mountains, she connected with like-minded, introspective individuals, finding solace and inspiration in the heart of nature.
 
As the transition from day to night unfolded seamlessly, guided by the high vibrations from their shared adventures, Bella Flow was born. It became a musical expression of the wellness and wellbeing sought after in these energy spaces. Every beat, rhythm, and melody not only captures the external majesty but also mirrors the internal transformation experienced in these natural settings.
 
Bella Flow’s compositions are more than an auditory experience; they are an invitation to embark on a personal exploration. The soundscapes cross geographical boundaries, echoing the universal quest for inner harmony and positive vibrations.

EMILY WALKER

I am a mother of 2 little wildlings, with another on the way! Our family resides in Polson, MT where we do our best to enjoy all that this beautiful land and area have to offer. Our family has been through many ups and downs, and seen many changes in a short time. My many years of combined experience and training in various embodiment and self-awareness practices have been true gifts for allowing me to hold myself and my family through these turbulent times.
I have trained in and continue to walk the priestess path of divine embodiment, which to me is a path of remembering my innate wisdom, power and direct connection to source. I also have extensive training and experience as a Rebirthing Breathwork Mastery Facilitator, which is a beautifully gentle approach to accessing the wisdom of our body and breath to move through anything that is holding us back from consciously living the lives we desire. It offers integration of our full selves- physical, mental, emotional and spiritual- and being able to show up in the world and in our daily lives as the fullest expression of who we are. 
 
I am deeply passionate about curating safe, sacred space for women to explore the full-spectrum of who they are and to practice the full expression of their radiant, uninhibited, true selves. It's been my great pleasure to be a gentle guide for many women along their path of remembering and returning to the wisdom and divinity within.  I am devoted to offering spaces and practices that reconnect women to their innate connection and communion with the intuition, guidance and support that is available to them. I believe it is the time for women to return to the fullness of their knowing and being, and I am grateful to be alive, awake, and playing my part in the rise of the deeply embodied Feminine!

JILL DEMERS

I left a successful career to study Nutrition Therapy after my middle son was diagnosed with autism. He lost his clinical diagnoses 3 years after I was introduced to the ways in which a nutrient dense, whole foods diet paired with simple, lifestyle habits can dramatically transform health. Today, I am a Nutrition Therapy Practitioner, Regenerative Farmer and Wellness Educator.  I use my background as an Adjunct Professor to teach folks how to use food and lifestyle to take control of their own health. We have so much agency over our wellness.  My favorite ways to cultivate health happen in the kitchen and on my farm.
  When not studying nutrition, you can find me experimenting with new recipes for my cookbook, working on my farm, training for an ultra-race or planning my next adventure with my husband and 3 boys.

¬†MEET THE CREATORSūüíē

Kristen Opp & Jaquelyn Rauff are the creators & founders of FLOURISHFEST & FLOURISH - a women's wellness community.  
We met in Missoula many years ago and quickly became the best of friends! We have always shared a love of healthy food and living a healthy lifestyle, so we decided to attend the Institute of Integrative Nutrition together, where we earned our health coaching certificates.
‚ÄčIt was an amazing experience and we learned so much, but once we were finished, the big question was... what do we do now?!¬† After spending countless late nights cooking delicious food, drinking even better wine and having long conversations about our path moving forward, we discovered something we both yearned for. We wanted community. We wanted to meet other women that also want to become their most vibrant and authentic selves - women that want to live their best lives! We felt that if we were feeling this way, there must be other women that feel this way too.¬†
And that is when FLOURISH began....
At FLOURISH we believe in wellness that empowers you and wellness that lifts you up. 
And most importantly, we believe in having fun along the way!
THANK YOU for being here on this journey with us and for supporting our vision! We can't wait to see you at FlourishFest!
