We use dance, authentic movement, and creative expression as a means to deeply connect with ourselves and others. We learn to listen to our bodies, our longings, our creative impulses, our intuition, our truth, which can guide us to living fuller, more authentic, joyful and healthier lives. And we learn to deeply listen to and support each other.
I offer my experience and training in Dance/Movement Psychotherapy, Authentic Movement, Contemplative Movement, 5Rhythms and Biodanza, along with countless years of dance (belly-dancing) and meditation.
Courses offered (new classes are forming; please contact me if interested):
