Freedom to Be Yourself and Do What You Love
The art of mindful movement—simply noticing our experience of sensations, thoughts and emotions as we move—is proven to help us in surprising ways: We can move more freely. We can face life's challenges with grace, clarity and integrity. We can problem solve better. We can be creative. We can see numerous possibilities. Exploring movement with curiosity and attention will help improve and maintain your physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.

Movement Classes—Re-discovering Your Freedom of Expression
Click here for a listing of current movement classes. For over twenty years I've taught Hatha. Since 2016, I've been offering Dao Yin Exercises and Kundalini yoga classes. My passion in Dao Yin and yoga is purely spiritual; to me, movement is an engaging way to be mindful and meditative. It helps us recognize and connect to a power greater than ourselves. Side benefits include strengthening and toning the body while creating flexibility and endurance, and promoting a natural high.
