PILATES, YOGA & THERAPEUTICS: At Gravity and Grace Movement studio, a 1:1 session is tailored to meet your needs and goals. Each session is an alchemical and intuitive process; I ask questions, listen to your history, ideas, & language, and then guide breath and movement. I use elements of yoga, Pilates and functional anatomy & movement (depending on your requests). You may choose private sessions to ask specific questions, work on a specific pose or skill, or start a home practice. For lasting results, to deepen and develop your practice, or to work with chronic pain & injuries, I encourage committing to private sessions regularly and ongoing.
MENTORING & CONSULTING: These informational sessions offer guidance on becoming a more values-aligned movement teacher or facilitator, running a movement/wellness biz, and social justice, social change-focused business practices. I will create action steps for you with your goals in mind.
***I've been teaching since 2001 to a broad range of clients, that include NFL Hall of Famer, Steve Young and International Popstar, Lady Gaga. I work with all variety of ability levels and issues, including, but not limited to: chronic injuries, herniations, hip-replacements, scoliosis, pre&post surgery, auto-immune disorders, depression/anxiety/panic disorders, PTSD, pre&post natal, Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, cancer, arthritis and more. I specialize in trauma-informed practices and I have a keen ability for working with hyper-mobility, body dysmorphia, disordered eating and chronic pain, as I have walked my own healing path through these issues.
My approach is oriented through an embodied practice of animism, social justice, collective healing & liberation, trauma-informed somatics and nervous system regulation. I address the body through physical intervention, as well as through an exploration of emotions, thoughts and feelings of connection to life, aliveness and spirit.
