Let's go exploring!
Mary Oliver, "The Summer Day"
Are you experiencing tightness, pain, or some kind of body “stuckness” that holds you back from doing what you love to do?
Do you sense this may be rooted in injury/trauma that is stuck in your body?
Are you wanting to discover how to work with novel, non-habitual MOVEMENT to transform that stuckness, in a way that feels safe to you, works well for you, and lasts - into something that you can work with (instead of against) – and thus get UNSTUCK?
Are you keen to learn and experience how to use what emerges, to CREATE NEW MOVEMENT FREEDOM and EASE and STRENGTH and FUN?
And (this is key!) - do you want to experience what you can do instead of what you have been doing up to now, so that you can anchor your newly-discovered movement freedom into your "real life" - and it continues to grow with and within you?
If you are feeling a big "YES!", working with me could be a great fit for you.
As you come to sense and break through what is holding you back, you create new ways to step into what you are truly capable of.
You may discover that you can move with more ease and comfort, and do what you want with freedom and - yes - JOY!
You may be stronger than you thought - and discover that good strength can feel easy - who knew, eh?
Your "stuckness" can then transform into flowing vitality, as you create lasting change, grounded in your own experience of what feels safe and good - to you.
What a great way to Open Your World!
Come know and feel and put into action what makes sense – for YOU.
Firmly connect this to your real life, and what YOU want to be able to do with more freedom and ease.
Tap into your inner intelligence - of your own body, and your whole self. ALL of you – body and mind, heart and soul. Welcome HOME!
These classes offer intriguing, gentle movement explorations to unlock your body's freedom, comfort - and strength. (YES, you can have all 3, all at the same time!)

These wee videos I made a few years ago can give you an idea of what I am like, and how I work. From cool anatomy, to horses, to intriguing movement topics - there is lots to check out!
Here is a link to a presentation (the slide deck) that I did a while back for Alexa Linton's Whole Horse podcast, on The Importance of Feeling Safe. Before the "learning channels" are open in our brain and body, we first have to Feel Safe, eh. This foundational info is relevant to people, horses, dogs... all mammals! And actually, all critters. Check it out :-)
Feel free to email me, or phone me, if you have a question.
Contact me to arrange a (free) short Zoom call together, to chat about what you are looking for, and what I offer. This will give us an opportunity to see if it feels like a good fit to work together.
