I love to learn and am fascinated by movement, pain and the nervous system. I have learned to overcome the suffering of my own pain with movement - both vigorous and slow - education about pain and the nervous system, self-awareness and mindset.
I love the word soma as a replacement for the concept of body and mind. It is a Greek word reclaimed by the philosopher and founder of Hanna Somatic Education, Dr Thomas Hanna, to refer to the living, sensing, feeling, thinking and adapting process of an organism.
Drawing on a combination of somatic movement, yoga, mindfulness, therapeutic neuroscience education and evidence-based approaches, I teach somas to get to know their nervous systems in order to ease pain, move better, learn to relax, and get back to the activities they love. I know it works; after all - I did it myself.

“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
- MARCUS AURELIUS
