Heart of Class

Have you ever forgotten how much you loved something, only to have that memory come flooding back in full force within minutes of reuniting? That Happened for Me Yesterday. I took a pause from teaching Gyrotonic classes to develop my teacher training program, Proprio-Synthesis, and spent the last year teaching classes focused more on theory and principles of movement. I hadn't realized how much I missed sharing the beautiful flow of that particular style of movement until Saturday afternoon,...

If you’ve ever worked with me, you’ve met my two assistants. Whether we’re teaching an online class or giving an in-person private session, Zoolander and Big Blue are always ready to help. They announce every arrival, demonstrate proper stretching techniques, and offer warmth and grounding for clients during bodywork sessions on the Galileo. Zoolander, the older and wiser of the two, is more subdued. Before Big Blue arrived on the scene, he would warm up for his day by taking small naps....

Reader You know how it gets at the end of every project, every long journey, every course… Our brains are full, our bodies are tired, and our focus narrows to the finish line. As a result, the advanced exercises taught in those last stages often become the most challenging to retain let alone teach with confidence. On average, we retain less than 50% of what we learn in any given situation, with the exact percentage varying based on factors like our learning style and the amount of rest we...

There are these moments of glorious inspiration when it’s not that we are creating something of our own design, but the Universe is working through us to bring its own creation into existence. I envision our creative source to be some form of glorious protozoic mess. Somewhere between a smashed lava lamp, a sunrise, and the tenacious bacterial reproduction that insists its existence within our bath towels. My Sewing Studio floor resembles all three . In my role as a movement teacher, I'm...

"When One teaches, Two learn." ~ Robert Heinlein This sentiment perfectly encapsulates one of the most rewarding aspects of my job – the opportunity to learn and grow alongside my students. Creatively designing routines that are as easy to understand as they are effective is an infinite source of inspiration and delight. Each person has their own unique set of needs, background, and physical abilities, and often a solution that I've created for one will show up in different ways throughout...

Hello Friends, A short email this week, with a fabulous postural reset for your shoulders all the way down at the bottom. But first Thank you for your interest in my group classes! The response was overwhelming and in the end, I think we'll do them all! If you clicked on the links in the previous email, I've already reached out to you about scheduling. Live classes are the BEST, and the energy that fills my studio when there are numerous students on the screen is simply incredible. While we...

Out of all the positions I’d imagined being unsuitable for, a 3rd grade chaperone was never on the list. Outside of the historic Old Adobe , breathing in the salt air of Cannery Row, I took a moment to rest on the wooden railing that separated the porch of the museum from the town square. The sound of seagulls echoed in our ears, mingling with the excited chatter of the children arranged in something like a circle. Somehow, resting turned into leaning, which turned into perching, and before...

I should know better by now. It's inevitable that when you say you'll NEVER do something, you're guaranteed to find yourself doing exactly that. So of course when I was coaching my students on how to write a great newsletter, and admonished them not to be that fitness studio that sends out a marketing email that includes a smoothie recipe, I should have known I was opening the doors to chaos. Of course, this would be the week that I find the best kitchen hack ever, become obsessed with the...

Asked how I was doing, I answered “ I’m in a slow phase right now. It’s weird for me to be slow” “Ha! Yes, was a slow strange winter for me too “ In a life punctuated by adventures, I rarely ( if ever) slowed down or took a pause. A self-employed artist and teacher of movement, life typically has cascaded from one project to the next. Surfing on the big ideas, building on previously laid foundations to create something original, and devising innovative solutions to people’s personal, physical...
