Nothing is more empowering than directly experiencing the energetic support and healing that is available to each of us in every moment. Assisting my clients in discovering this support, and learning to access it themselves, is what I'm here to do. Coming to more fully inhabit your body is a beautiful journey, and I am honored to guide you along that path. There are many ways of learning to exist in embodied mindfulness, these are the practices that I teach and work with:
Private Yoga Instruction*
Interested in exploring yoga, at your own pace? Curious about receiving the benefits of a yoga practice, but working with issues that keep you from feeling safe or comfortable in a class environment? Private yoga instruction is a safe and customized way to become familiar with yoga, whether your intention is to enter a group practice safely or to create and sustain your own personal practice - and I'd love to help you do so! Please message me regarding your needs and interests, and we'll get you started on your yoga journey. Your body & mind will thank you in many ways for the gift of regular practice. Let's begin.
Private Meditation Instruction*
One-on-one meditation instruction is a beautiful way to learn to meditate in ways that work for your personality and lifestyle. If you have tried meditation in the past and have felt incapable, frustrated, or unclear, private meditation instruction may help you find the practices and approaches that work for YOU. You CAN meditate, I can help. Please message me regarding your needs and interests, and we'll get you started on your meditative journey. Your body, mind, fellow drivers and your loved ones will all appreciate the gift of your regular practice. Let's begin.
Move Well Training Sessions*
Our bodies need to move in order to be healthy, balanced, enjoyable places for us to live. But often, pain, injury, or the inactivity that comes along with the modern lifestyle can limit both our access to ease-filled movement and our enjoyment of moving generally. Movement can and should be enjoyable, increase your energy and vitality, and empower you. Move Well sessions are customized to meet you where you are and lead you towards becoming a happy mover.
How do your daily habits influence the way you feel? Do they contribute to your discomfort? It's likely that they do!
Can they be modified to instead relieve pain and release tension in your body? They can!
Can you make small changes in your daily life that will give you access to pain-free movement, greater energy, and increased vitality? You can!
Do you want to feel greater freedom and ease in your movement? You can!
Do you want to access the ability to influence your general energy level and your mood, using your own breath? You can!
In our Move Well sessions, I'll empower you with tools and ideas you can use on a daily basis to improve your experience of life in your body. Using breathwork, movement exploration, balance play, dynamic stretching, resistance and movement techniques drawing from diverse systems, we will assemble a unique program suited to your needs that fits your life. And we'll make it enjoyable!
Move Well sessions combine very well with bodywork, as each supports the work of the other in changing the grip of long-held tension patterns. This combination has grown out of 20 years of study and work with clients, and I've found it to be the most effective way of facilitating the experience for my clients of both joyfully experiencing the body from the inside out and creating meaningful change. For this reason, I've created sessions blending individualized movement education and bodywork. Move Well sessions are also great on their own, helping you find ways to move and use your body that feel better than the ones you're using now. I'm prepared and excited to help you feel your best. Let's get started!
