Breaking the boundaries of traditional Yoga and traditional Dance classes, the Movement, is the place where the realms between feeling & knowing become one.

 

Sharing this space, where the vessel of the physical body communicates beyond the instruments of sense perception, has led me to travel and teach workshops, retreats and international classes in  Paris, Tulum, Croatia, Greece, Bali, Miami, Los Angeles, Paris, Switzerland, Bosnia and Denmark. I look forward to sharing my offerings and gifts with you.
