“This community is dynamic and empowers the individual to reach new heights. The love for each person’s strengths and light continues to draw me back in to work with such a soulful team!”
My mission is to help young dancers and athletes transform their bodies by intentionally integrating the brain into their training and therapy. I have training as an orthopedic massage and Pilates therapist, in yoga and dance medicine, and in my quest to find more tools to help my clients, I discovered that the missing piece to creating profound shifts in the body was to put the brain and nervous system first. By changing the brain and giving it the right inputs, we can change the body. Whether it is to feel less pain, better balance, more range of motion, or by making training and performing easier and more efficient, we can change the way we move and perform.
