Movements are as eloquent as words. ~Isadora Duncan
I have been helping women and men find openness, body awareness, and greater agility, confidence, and grace for 30 years. Through the art of Pilates, GYROTONIC® Method, GYROKINESIS® Method, Dance and Energy Healing modalities, I have found great joy in guiding my clients.
My journey in life has always lead me to look inward. I am continually asking myself how my energy feels, how my soul feels and how my body feels as an expression of myself. I am also keenly aware of how my surroundings impact me. That is why it is important and natural to me to be aware of this in my own teaching and guiding others.
I am past the 50 year mark in my life, and I strive to move through my life with vitality, grace and practicality. I know that the challenges that life presents are always blessings on my path to learning, going deeper and enjoying life more fully.
For 15 years, I was a professional dancer. What an incredible experience that was - but it was not without its challenges! Even though my spirit soared and my body served as this incredible tool, over time the dancing became brutalizing to my joints and my spine. I ended up in extreme pain, and realized I could not dance anymore for a profession.
Now what? I was devastated and in constant pain. I did not feel myself any more. My soul was not soaring. I felt frustrated and decrepit far before my years. I learned that too of high-impact exercise and over-use can be the worst thing for a my spine, nervous system, and joints!
I spent years studying and learning proper body mechanics and how to heal the body. Structural misalignment and blockages of energy in our systems play out as discomfort in our physical bodies. My path is focused on healing, self awareness and being good to this body I was given.
Our goal: A balanced, strong, yet supple structure, aligned with proper energy flow. It's a wonderfully healing combination!
With my watchful eye, my expertise in alignment, my uncanny intuitive sense, and my ability to follow energy flow, I guide my clients toward this balance.
It took me years to heal the damage I'd unknowingly done to my body but the process of this allowed me to explore deeper.
If only I'd known then what I know now!
The good news is, I learned some of the best practices, and exercises for taking good care of my body, my spine, and my emotional well being. And now I get to share them with my clients. There's nothing better than helping a client to reduce pain, feel an open strong yet supple body, and enjoy a renewed energy.
During my many years of experience as Founder, Director of Award winning White Light Studio, a Pilates, GYROTONIC® and Healing Studio in La Jolla, CA, I was able to provide a space to help teachers and clients experience better agility, knowledge and health. As an Energy HealingPractitioner and experience as the Movement Specialist in the Art of Heartful Living Institute, Energy Healing School, provided a ground for students and teachers to explore the areas of the body through movement that may have been blocked from emotional and physical challenges. My BA, in Dance and extensive training of dancers, children through seniors, recreational to professional has given me a knowledge of body mechanics with spirit of expression. My own inward journey with Mediation centers my days and keeps me connected to my true source and being.
I have just the right tools to support you in growing more agile, confident, and graceful through your life.
Now I wake up every day knowing that I get to do the work I was born to do... to help people like us grow more confident, more agile, and stronger with a deeper awareness instead of just "growing older."
Let me know how I can support you!
