I have lived my life experiencing the world through my body: I’ve been a professional dancer, yoga teacher, and Somatics researcher for over 30 years. I have degrees and certifications in many body-based techniques and therapies, including Gyrokinesis/Gyrotonic, Pilates, Thai Massage and Reiki.

As a Physical Therapist Assistant I’ve worked 4+ years along side Physical Therapists treating orthopedic and neurological conditions. At these clinics I learned how to treat common problems associated with aging, such as osteoarthritis, rotator cuff injuries, neck and back pain.

This experience led me to devise individual programs for adults that prevent these common injuries. I now specialize in movement classes and one-on-one sessions that include preventive exercise as well as strategies to manage these conditions.
