I was never athletic growing up. Outdoorsy, yes, but there were no sports scholarships being won here.
Movement was the way I found to help me overcome the powerlessness that engulfed me after gaining over a hundred pounds. My children were starting to play and explore life without me. Rather than sink into the depression that threatened to overwhelm me, I moved. I reached out to compassionate “movement” friends who rallied around me with kindness, encouragement, and motivation.
Through that journey, I became strong enough to participate in life again rather than be a bystander.
I had less pain, more freedom, and I began to put trust in my own body.
I was ready to jump into the adventure of life.
I am a teacher of movement and an empowerment educator so I can help others find their own inner strength. Together, we strengthen so much more than muscles. We discover a life with less pain, more play, and more choice.
Our adventures, our interactions with family, friends and those we hold dear -- that's what makes life rich and meaningful. I teach movement with that same combination of compassion, encouragement, and motivation so you can embrace life and engage with it to the fullest.
