Mindful Movement Teacher / Creative Collaborator / Abundant Health

Mind, Body, Spirit, Movement
Mindful Movement / Dance Teacher
We have amazing healing potential in being mobile humans. I take people through a mind & body experience that brings awareness and new insights into the wonderful world of the body. Soma is a living process by which our bodily sensations, movements, perceptions, emotions and thoughts form a whole of experience. My desire is for people to have a "lived body" experience by observing and exploring themselves through sensing, moving, and music. Having healthy body images and understanding of our individuality, as well as potentially correcting bad body habits releases our minds and emotions and brings empowerment through a patient process of healing.

Health Coach and Aspiring Herbalist
As an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, I create a supportive environment that enables you to articulate and achieve your goals. This is an opportunity for you to receive quality time with a trained professional to help you find the right lifestyle that works best for you. We will work with primary foods: relationships, exercise, work, and spirituality, as well as secondary food: everything you put into your body, i.e. nutrition. In this holistic approach small consistent steps will be made to a healthy, more whole you!

I am currently focusing my work in the dance movement therapy and herbalism (I am currently in the Sky House Yoga Herbal Apprenticeship School) direction and collaborations with people focusing on food justice and earth's care.

Feeling Electric
As I listened to MGMT's "Electric Feel" a feeling of strength, sensuality and freedom came to me. I love the music in that track and I imagined myself dancing in a rainforest. One of my favorite places in D.C. is the Botanical Gardens. Suddenly, it came to me, "I need to dance to this in the Botanical Gardens." So, I did. I just turned on my phone and felt what was inside me. The plants supported my feeling of connectedness to mother earth and my power as a women. I felt a joy, a simplicity of being that was good for my overworked mind. I felt electric, and this was healing. May you move mindfully, knowing you are an electric being, bringing and receiving light from the world.
Holistic Health
Herbal Medicine, a Holistic Life
In the book, "The Blue Zones, 9 Lessons for Living Longer From the People Who've Lived the Longest" by Dan Buettner, Buettner and his group travel to find the healthiest, longest-living groups of humans. As Dan's group observes the practices of the centenarians of Okinawa, they see these healthy, older people commonly use and grow turmeric. Says one of the scientists in the expedition to un-lock the secrets of longevity, "Turmeric is one-fifth as powerful as cisplatin, which is one of the most powerful drugs in chemotherapy." Turmeric is an anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anticancer!
