December 6 @ 5:11 pm
I am a yoga teacher, dance movement therapist, early childhood educator, forest school teacher and mother. Over the years, I have found joy and solace in movement practices. I really value the notion that we can be bodyful, as well as mindful.
I value non-verbal communication and the memories, wisdom, emotion and somatic knowing that our bodies hold and can directly and authentically express. Having studied ballet and contemporary dance at the Royal Academy of Dance in London, I continued to study Dance at Surrey University, Roehampton Institute in the UK. This love of somatic movement and communication enabled me to get involved in integrated community dance projects which led to a career in service management, education and advocacy work within the Health and Disability sector here in NZ.
I have been teaching yoga and somatic movement for well over a decade and continue to seek out opportunities to study and learn from experienced therapists, teachers and movement practitioners.
My current movement focused work is as a yoga teacher and as a dance movement therapist.
I facilitate clinical groups for DTNZ (Dance and Art therapy New Zealand) for children and adolescents with ASD and ADHD, and run individual sessions for adults and children at Embodied Movement in Waitoki.
I am enjoying exploring embodied ways of being and teaching in a Kindergarten, and also run annual restorative yoga and movement retreats.
