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 sigh. My body used to hurt. I exercised with the dominant cultural concept that being healthy equalled measuring up to performance goals. I looked healthy and strong, but my body ached, even though I did lots of cross training, yoga and pilates. I came to learn that exercise is different than movement. Someone can be very active, but also be extremely sedentary in certain parts of their body and prone to disease and injury in the same ways a "non-active" person could be.
Movement is a powerful medicine not just impacting muscles and joints, but heart health, bone density, pelvic floor function, lymph regulation, balanced menstrual cycles...the list goes on. BUT, you must know the variety and dosage of actual movement you're ingesting. Because most of us move as if we're writing a sentence using a 10-letter alphabet and a worn out pen, the same rough and bent sentence over and over again - but we can't tell. Your body can do amazing things, and feel amazing too. We all need a higher quality and quantity of movement to stave off the affluent ailments running rampant in our culture that often treated at the short term, symptomatic level.
I have an embodied understanding of how alignment, geometry, physics, and motion all interplay by spending thousands of hours moving in the studio, not just sitting at a desk. I have over fifteen years of professional training in movement and dance reinforced by my collected certifications and continuing education. 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 arterial plaque and 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 aim is to push the edge of what's possible in my body, mind and spirit, and offer what I learn along the way. It's fun to feel myself growing more flexible, strong, and injury free as I age, as opposed to the other way around.
I hope you join me!
