When your body feels good, you don't notice it. You don't notice your knees when you hike, your back after a long day, and you get off the ground without a grunt. My body used to hurt. I exercised with the idea that being healthy meant measuring up to performance goals. I looked strong, but I ached, even though I did lots of cross training and yoga. I was also fighting major depression, anovulatory cycles, adrenal fatique and had no idea how to regulate my energetic gas tank. I was addicted to exercise-induced adrenaline and had no healthy way to deal with my emotions. Someone can be very active, look incredily fit, and also be extremely stuck and sedentary in certain parts of their body and mind without knowing it. That was me and just as prone to injury and disease as a "non-active" person was.
I came to learn that exercise is different than movement and how to fundamentally change my alignment.
I'm a mom to an almost-two year old (carried in the womb easily & born without intervention). I'm busy and don't spend time at the gym, but I continue to grow more strong, flexible, and injury free as I age, as opposed to the other way around. I know how to put life-enhancing movements inside my daily life.
My embodied understanding of the interplay between alignment, geometry, physics and anatomy came from spending thousands of hours in the studio. I have over twenty years of professional training in movement and dance reinforced by my degree, collected certifications and continuing educations. I "walk the walk" of a supple, capable body, and constantly learn more about it by studying the living world. I understand scoliosis by looking at the way a tree grows around a boundary and I see a story of blood dynamics in the erosion of riverbanks.
We are not separate from the world. Our body is extensively and unfathomably interdependent, in relation to itself and the environment around it. My quest is to the edge of what's possible in my body, mind, and spirit, and offer what I learn along the way.
I hope you'll join me!
