Years ago as a young, fit pilates teacher capable of pushing my physical limits, I had a snowboarding accident. It left me in pain, incapable of moving properly, even after months of physio. How could this have happened to me when I thought I had such a strong, developed core? A co-worker, teacher and mentor helped me recognize that the “hard, muscular strength” that I had developed, was acting as superficial armour. The tension I carried was hindering my deeper, more interconnected movement and breath. Through this new understanding of pilates and applied movement techniques I was able to heal my chronic pain and restore movement in my body. It was all at once a disillusioning, humbling and exciting experience that sent me on a journey of curiosity and exploration that continues to this day.
I now move and breathe in a whole new way and feel a fluid integrated sense of self. I love working with clients to explore their movement experience, healing chronic pain, improving strength or well-being in a somatic, movement journey. Originally trained as an artist my keen eye and attention to detail I am able to deepen my work with clients.
I often turn to developmental movement re-patterning and primal movement patterns to understand how we are meant to move. I am passionate about helping people understand the workings and alignment of a functioning, moving body. Through understanding how the body moves as a whole we can begin to understand and utilize the function of the deep core and get to the root of dysfunction and discomfort.
