I found energy work in my long walk home through debilitating, isolating, and confusing anxiety and depression. The felt experiences were potent. My energy work teachers addressed the physical body and spiritual or ‘invisible wisdom’ vocabularies. Practicing qigong healing enlivened my whole being, so I followed my nose, slowly and gradually, down this path.
I grew up partly overseas, and have lived in bustling global cities, a tropical tourist town, a rural Ag community, mountain culture, remote desert, and now the Puget Sound. I love observing many different ways of ‘how-to-be-a-human’ and am passionate about sharing worldview with curiosity. My own health experiences and witnessing family members’ autoimmune, mental, cancer, and addiction challenges keeps my eye on healing and future dis-ease prevention.
Restorative Exercise came into my life while researching Ancestral Health and nutrition.
I saw Katy Bowman’s name on the Board of Advisors webpage of Mark Sisson’s Primal Health Coach Institute, and wondered outloud, “what in the heck is a biomechanist?” A long weekend and dozens of blog posts, podcasts, and videos later, I knew the education she offers would lead to the next set of critical modern life skills I craved and needed: moving more parts of my body, more of the time!
I offer classes, 1-on-1 sessions, and outdoor workshop experiences.
My work mission is to support the individual-family-village to increase deep connection and confidence.
When I’m not studying or sharing what I know in high quality experiences with clients and students, you can find me cooking up a storm, entertaining, creating with color and texture outdoors and in, nerding out on R+2.0 dog training, taking a gazillion photos of flowers, and most importantly, dancing, singing, and playing with my fam.
