As a mover and teacher, I have been guiding people towards greater health through the practice of listening to our bodies for over 20 years.
I work with a wide variety of people and ages and teach both privately and in group contexts. People who work with me are looking for greater understanding of their own vehicle - their bodies, relief from pain and a desire to be in themselves differently.
The needs are all different, some need deep release, while other need to know their own power, still others seek freedom of expression, or understanding of how to work with their nervous systems, what ever the physical desire is, they are all needs of the body.
I hold an Masters in Fine Art in dance from Smith College, and was a teaching fellow there. Before teaching wellness, I already understood how much movement was integral to health. I always resourced myself through movement. I have been a certified Personal Trainer with the National Academy of Sports Medicine for 18 years and have worked privately with clients in and around New York City for most of that time.
I have been deeply interested in that which generates vitality, longevity and the courage to heal. My background in Yoga began with Iyengar and I am a certified teacher of Embodied Anatomy and Yoga and Developmental Movement and Yoga from the School of Body Mind Centering. I am certified with one of the first nationally certified pre and postnatal programs, Baby Moon, and it and the birth of my son Milo has given me insights to the physical needs for mothers.
I integrate my bodywork trainings from residencies in Thailand with 11 years of Body Mind Centering based touch principles into my therapeutic approach to touch. I base my work in deep listening and also learning new ideas, patterns and systems of support.
