My body was broken from being a Professional Dancer in my 20s and early 30s. Pilates practice helped me heal the injuries and unlock movement patterns that were causing imbalances.
In my late 30s after having two children my body changed. I began to start researching fascia. Which lead me into more research about the mind, body, and spirit. I began to practice techniques of hands on touch and words of healing to renew the body.
Most people have injuries, dysfunction, tightness, and emotional stress that keep the body from working at its desired state.
Teachers, I would love to be your guide. I work digitally so we can connect thought a conference call, workshop via video conference, or I can come to your studio.
If you find that your clients are stuck in a pattern, and need help to find other ideas to unlock the dysfunction; I can help.Please reach out to me via email. Join my mailing list to get your blogs sent directly to your in-box. NEWSLETTER
