"Touch and movement are integral to making sense of your world and both have rare healing capacities."
I have an 25 year history of working with movement wellness with people. My background as a professional dancer and artist led me to find practices such as Pilates, Feldenkrais, Yoga and Meditation, inspiring a journey into Somatic practice and a continuous diving into what supports and enables health on all levels.
A part of this journey was training in Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy, a hugely transformative practice for which I am eternally grateful to have come into contact with. It allows people to connect to a deeper sense of self, a sense of their essence, their joy and place in life.
Regular practices in Contact Improvisation with collaborator Rachel Ruchstuhl-Mann, (pictured above) of Whanui Moves also influences my field, and allows ongoing support and deep diving into developing very specific resources, and creating art works of rich and varied offerings.
I consider it such a privilege to share this work with those who find me. Usually you are on your own journey of discovery and Im just facilitating a new layer of experience. Thank you.
As a parent, my practices help me remain resilient, and most of the time playful. Parenting can challenge our nervous systems significantly, and being resourced to do the best job you can is a huge contribution to society.
I am inspired to age with grace, and wish that for everyone. I look forward to our first appointment.
