“I very much value the sciences of the human body and have learned much from my studies. I also value the wisdom we come wired with to know what we individually need to be healthy and whole. One of my favorite things about teaching movement is the space it creates for us to become more present as we breathe and move and feel. This presence helps us tune into the messages our body is giving us about what it needs, not only physically, but emotionally and spiritually. In this space we enhance our ability to observe whatever is in the present moment and choose a response that serves us and others well. ”
