I teach exercise as a vehicle for deeper embodiment; as a way to connect more intimately with ourselves, celebrate our body’s uniqueness and find deeper joy in being alive. I reject traditional notions associated with grit and pain, in which we are never fit enough, or there is always something to fix. Instead, I teach clients to move from the inside out and develop the body’s natural intelligence to move through the world with dignity and grace.
What We Do
One-on-one sessions include personalized exercise, bodywork (at this time, self touch) and movement coaching. You will be guided through a 50 minute session that addresses your interests regarding stress relief, mobility, strength and longevity. I specialize in practices for graceful aging such as improving balance and joint health to keep my clients moving and thriving in every decade of life.
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.
