First I want to thank you for being interested!

I have been teaching movement for decades. What I love most is helping others move better, understand things on a strong and "real" level. I teach with your goals at the forefront. I guide you to potentials within you. Movement reveals so many layers of ourselves. 

So now to the technical stuff... why I'm qualified to help you!
