My foundational understanding of body mechanics, physiology and function established itself through an Undergraduate Physiotherapy degree. A learning journey leading to academic work and teaching in Biomedical Science, Neural, Visceral and Musculoskeletal Anatomy. These opportunities deepened my understanding with structural mechanics and the physiological workings of us. However, challenges in my personal life led me to inquire beyond black and white, tangible aspects of being human and seek other animating principles that converge with and have gravity in human experience.
In the passing of a decade I explored study in Bodywork, Yoga, Breathwork, Meditation, Zenthai Shiatsu, Sound Medicine, Astrology, Mysteries of the Feminine, Woman Cycles, Rites of passages and importance of ceremony, or living intention.
As the human experience goes, I'm a perpetual student of life.. continuing studies that enrich practice. I'm currently undertaking a 3 year training in Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (Wellness Institute) combined with Counselling and Psychotherapy (Connection Culture). Despite my pursuits toward integrating the wisdom from these bodies of knowledge, I have growing appreciation for the humility that goes alongside valuing the unknowable, seeing anew and trusting the mystery.
Life has curated through me a way of working in bodywork artistically.. participating in alive co-creation of both company and a tapestry of threads from different traditions and times grounded in science and esoterically informed.
