lil omm is a community of women who gather, study and support one another in all seasons of life.

We are committed to living with the principles of compassion, presence and healing, not to mention ease and JOY!

I deeply appreciate our students.

I have the honor and privilege to work with intelligent, passionate, thoughtful, heart-full women daily. What a gift.

I truly have the “best job” in Washington, DC.



“I wanted to send you a quick email to say hello, send you a quick note about the how I’ve been, and say thank you. Thank you, because the Wishes workshop at your home was apparently the kick in the butt I needed to get going and make a shift in my life. Since that night, I’ve really been working to clarify my goals and to make small but powerful changes in myself and how I interact with the world. In the last month, I’ve really stuck to my goals of doing more for myself and getting out of my slump.” HZ

“I wanted to share some awesome ripple effects that have been happening over the past couple of months that I have been working with Pleasance privately and now in Thrive. I have started including my 10 year old daughter Lia in my morning and evening routines and it has been a game changer in my family. She has been really curious about this “Thrive class I am doing with Miss Pleasance.” So, I explained it all to her, showed her my binder of materials and my notebook. I told her I am doing this for her and her Dad, so I can learn take better care of myself, be more healthy and so that I can teach her (and her Dad) how to do the same. I asked her if she has noticed that I have been trying to change and she said “Yes! I feel so much less stressed out.” This stuff works you guys, I’m still beating myself up a little bit about how much I have stressed her out in the past but she sees me trying and it IS making a difference. She is listening. (And so is my husband!) Funny story that just hit me right in the heart: Lia went on a sleepover birthday party a couple of weekends ago and they decorated little tote bags…Lia was so proud of what she written on her bag “Your feelings become your thoughts and your thoughts become your actions”. “Mom look”, she said “it’s what you have been telling me!”. I have been telling her I am working on this too and she is listening! Instead of my usual “hurry up, come on, why are you taking so long” barrage at her morning and night we start and end our days with some deep breathing, visualization of either how great the day will be or what we are thankful for in the day that just happened and then of course snuggles/hugs and some essential oil rubs on our feet. Instead of hurrying her along I make a conscious decision to just meet her where she is, give her hugs and attention and then we are both happy and never late! Ya’ll this is a daily struggle for me and I don’t always “do the right thing” so to speak but now that Lia knows how much I am trying, she is trying too. It is just these small steps that are making a big impact, one little step at a time. I have also been making huge culture shifts at my work with my co-workers around stress, taking better care of our bodies and minds. Pleasance has given me so many amazing tools that I can integrate into my life, I now feel like I am a one woman crusader for health and well being everywhere I go!”


“I wanted to take a few minutes to thank you both again for a wonderful retreat. It was truly such a treat for me and the girls separately and alone. They were able to be in nature, have no one ask about their “divorce”, be themselves, have fun, connect with others, etc. I was able to relax, do yoga, learn, and just be. And most of all, I think we all came away with a tighter bond and feeling empowered. You two are both so special to me and I am just so grateful for what you have given me and my little family. You should be so proud of what you accomplished over this weekend as moms.. friends and business owners. Thank you for such a special gift that you have given the three of us. What a treat!” RR

“I owe such a huge debt of gratitude to you for being one of those people who’s helped me, taught me, guided me. You touch countless others, too. Whether they walked into your studio, took a class or workshop, follow your Instagram etc. So thank YOU. Thanks for sharing your gifts. Yourself. Thanks for your generosity.” JH

“Working with Pleasance has been an incredible gift. She will truly see you, honor you, and meet you where you are on your journey.  She will connect you to exactly what you need through  a vast array of resources. She will inspire you through her presence and care. She will support you every step of the way by making herself available. There is nothing more I could have asked for in a mentor, a coach, a friend.” HZ

“Thank you so much for such a wonderful weekend. Words cannot express how great I feel and how the weekend allowed me to put so many things in perspective!” TML

“I can’t say enough how thankful I am for everything that lilomm provides. The mother’s day workshop I took a few years back is literally got my through my husband’s deployment. I printed out the meditation and had it on mirror to read every day and I share it with others everytime there is a new deployment. The trust workshop was also transformative. I’ve been singing, dancing, taking time to enjoy my tea and doing more moon yoga to ground myself and find that trust. My intention this fall has been to find more of myself and that workshop provided such a wonderful place to beign doing that in concrete ways. Thank you so much!” KC

“Thank YOU for sharing your talents and gifts to all of us this weekend, for helping us to integrate our retreat lives into our daily lives, and to think of them as one.” AJ

“Thank you! It is always so grounding and insightful to learn with you. You are an amazing teacher and example of how we should cultivate authenticity and compassion for ourselves into our lives.” MF
