I have taught hatha based yoga since 2009 in various settings; working with children to adults and even mental health clients. In the beginning of 2014 I finished school and became a Certified Occupational Therapist Assistant and couldn’t believe the overlap of yoga and therapy. During my clinical rotations in OTA School I was assigned to work with many amazing Sensory Integration Specialists and witnessed numerous healing moments. A chord was struck deep within me. I needed to share sensory integration with my yoga clients. It was the missing link in my own personal practice and the bridge to the disconnect I frequently observed in my students. I fell in love with proprioception, hence my initial love for Therapeutic balls & Clubbells. I’ve now committed myself to expanding my knowledge on how we can use the nervous system to improve our well-being and restore our original strength.
M∙Body represents the phenomenon I witness in my students when they have an embodied moment. The “M” is that moment when you have an “ahh-ha” experience; it’s complete insight and you identify with it so much that you make the face of bewilderment. It’s a beautiful moment, a moment that I cherish as a teacher, one that never gets old. It's a moment I always try to enhance in my classes.
With M∙Body|mindful.movement my goal is to inspire embodied moments and promote self-care health care through mindful movement.
