“We are forever transforming, growing, accomplishing, grieving, and letting go. I believe we are born in touch with our body, naturally moving with Joy and in Self-Healing ways. Over time we’ve developed unhealthy habits that cause dis-ease, tension, and stress in the body. I invite students to Explore in every path to enhance Awareness of their body, mind and spirit; to deepen their breath even when it feels constricted; to approach their bodies with grace and ease; and to do what feels good. Every practice is a new journey, a chance to discover, explore and recreate how you see yourself as well as everything surrounding you. I look forward to sharing my practice with you.”
