movement

I approach body and movement as site for learning, play, pain, joy, pleasure, regeneration, and coming home. By coming home, we can then build relationships that are kind and nourishing. In this way, working through our relationship with our bodies and developing a personal movement practice is a workbook towards building a thriving community.
