As a Somatic Movement Educator, and Body-Mind Centering & Yoga teacher, I use many different approaches in my work. I have a background in Energy Work and Craniosacral Therapy.
A session may also include touch as well as movement. We may begin with you lying on the floor and working with cellular awareness. We may explore developmental movement patterns including push, yield and reach and learning how to move from the floor up to standing with support. A session could also include Yoga, where you explore these early developmental movement patterns and the body’s systems in Yoga Asana.
A session with me will help you develop awareness of your body systems – organs, skeletal, endocrine, nervous and fluids – down to your cells. I believe that moving the body with awareness can be very healing in itself.
This practice is about tuning into your body’s sensations and learning to move with curiosity and non-judgement. This is a practice of the mind and not just moving the body.
Sometimes, challenges arise as well. Something in your body feels tight, uncomfortable, rotated or stuck. Somatic Movement Education can help you look at your body and movement from a fresh perspective. You may sense something you didn’t before and figure out how to move in a different way.
Ideally, we want our Somatic Movement practice to fuel our creative energy and keep us curious. We want our energy to keep cycling. We hope to find more ways to move in the world where it gets easier and not harder. We also hope to find more ease in our movement.
I am interested in how the body informs the mind and how the mind informs the body. If we move our body in a more grounded, expressive, supportive and integrated way, we may find it’s more than just our body that changes.
Sessions are $80 per hour. I am only taking a few clients at this time.
