Movement is my medicine, and something I love to share! I started lifting weights with my father as a teenager, learning the importance of properly working the whole body and cultivating exercise discipline that would become my lifestyle. As a child I had been clumsy and continued to reinforce that negative limiting belief until one day at around 16, I decided I didn't like that story. I figured if I stopped saying I was clumsy perhaps I would cease to be. IT WORKED! I began to tell myself that I can be good at anything I set my mind to. I favored solo activities vs team sports, such as surfing, snowboarding and rollerblading halfpipe. The meditative quality of these sports fed my soul in a good way. Shortly after, in the mid-late 90's, I ventured from my home in NY to Venice Beach in Los Angeles. There is where I found Yoga and the underground rave dance culture. I had never experienced anything like it, the music, the vibe, the wild styles of fashion, the inclusivity and love was mind blowing. So much non judgemental acceptance from everyone, illuminated how much I did not accept myself. I was frozen, unable to dance because I had stories in my mind where the inner critic would tear me apart before I could even begin. With the help of MDMA, slowly that voice became quieter, as I learned to give myself permission to be free to express myself, to move my body from a place of no steps, no technique, no training, just freestyle ecstatic dance movement play. Shedding layers, connecting to my own vessels, my body, inhabiting myself deeply and completely.
Soon after I began to immerse myself in Flow State movement play, ecstatic dance, followed by training multiple dance disciplines, yoga teacher trainings, performing on stages, teaching local community classes, festival workshops and retreats.
