Having been a dancer all my life, movement is one of the most important things in my life. I am dedicated to prioritizing practices that ignite and invite (re-)embodiment, pleasure, and care into my life and to helping create a container for others to do the same. I am passionate about moving with an internal and intuitive motivation, undoing corporeal internalizations, engaging the full spectrum of sensuality, integrating traumas, and welcoming play. I received my trauma-sensitive RYT-200 through SoulWork and have had a regular yoga practice for over four years. My current movement practice first and foremost depends on what my body needs and desires, but it often involves asana movements, improvisation, somatic movement, and occasionally rave-inspired movement.
Books and writing are often a source of deep inspiration, particularly Women Who Run with the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype by Clarissa Pinkola Estes, The Body is Not an Apology by Sonya Renee Taylor, and Pleasure Activism: The Politics of Feeling Good by adrienne maree brown. I enjoy weaving themes from the books I read into my offerings.
I love connecting with nature, and spending time outside is a daily ritual of mine. Nature is my therapy, my God, my teacher, my playground, my home. We could not exist in these bodies without the earth, and I am so grateful to be able to honor the earth through movement. I am curious about re-discovering my wild, primal self in relation to the earth, and my research interests and offerings reflect that.
I am a woman.
A daughter, sister, friend, lover, student, teacher.
I am my ancestors' remains.
I am from rolling green fields and grass tickling my bare feet.
A sunrise lover, sky gazer, adventure seeker, big-time foodie, and book enthusiast.
I seek to live life by choosing courage over comfort.
To love deeper and be more vulnerable.
To let my heart break open by the beauty and sorrow that comes with life.
I am curious, determined, emotional, passionate, introverted.
I love listening, learning, sharing, and connecting meaningfully with people.
I am so much more than these words.
I am stumbling, evolving, growing.
I am learning and unlearning every day.
