You can’t love movement if it is difficult or painful. I hope that I can help you rediscover the possibilities of movement through individual sessions or classes.
“To make the impossible possible, the possible easy, and the easy elegant. Life without movement is unthinkable.” - Moshe Feldenkrais
Upon leaving my long-time job as Artistic Director at the Fort Wayne Dance Collective, I turned my attention to offering programs that help people reconnect to their bodies and to find joy and comfort in movement. For some it means re-education on how to stand up, improve posture, recover from an injury, or how to be a better swimmer. For others they look to movement to reduce stress.
We can start on a path of easier movement together.
