She has previously completed a degree in Exercise Science, competed as an NCAA gymnast, graced the stage of cruise ships as an aerial and contortion specialty act, and even performed as an acrobat with the San Francisco Opera as well as many other international entertainment companies.
As an instructor she enjoys helping people deepen their relationship with their body.
Every being she greets is another chance to use the whole of her life experiences and personal presence to both challenge the body and allow for growth and healing. Discovering the movement potential and the deep inner workings of the human body is her life long path. She aims to infuse her students with the joy of remembering their wholeness.
