"The best rejuvenating and relaxing way to reconnect to the deliciousness of experiencing my body. 
The combination of her gentle voice and knowledge of physiological references with creative imagery
 invites an incredible freedom of movement.  Her guidance makes it so easy to move.
  It doesn't feel like a practice. It feels like a gift."  Zoe Nijsten, The Netherlands

Private sessions tailor your sessions to your individual needs giving you time and space for dialogue
 which guides me toward which practices to bring forward moment to moment.
  You may choose from Somatic Movement Education, meditation, Soma Yoga,
 Classical Hatha Yoga, the developmental movement of BrainDance,
improvisational somatics, dance,
