"Thank you for an absolutely transformative experience...I cannot
tell you how grateful I am for your gentle, grounded presence and teaching. I feel like a light has been thrown on inside me--like my spirit
and my body are at last holding hands".



Somatic movement classes are based on the work of Thomas Hanna. Learning to feel the tension your body holds unconsciuosly takes practice and thoughtful guidance in a safe space. Once you begin to sense and feel your body from a new perspective, one of full awareness, consciously, you are on the way to teaching your brain a new pattern of movement. This is how you learn to release your specific pattern of habituation and pain, at the level of the brain. Somatics helps to bring our unconscious patterns of tightness and holding to our conscious awareness, then we can make lasting changes.

On Zoom 

Weekly Somatics  Classes

9:30-10:30am EDT

5:30-6:30pm EDT

Somatic movement explorations invite inquiry and challenge outdated ideas and beliefs that may no longer serve a purpose or inhibit function.  Awareness is infinite, the mind confines us.


Join me to learn how to improve function and address chronic pain. This class series is for anyone interested in learning the basics or those with an interest in reviewing. We will address the most common issues from general stiffness or mobility to chronic back, shoulders,  or neck pain.

Clinical Somatic Sessions

In-person, one-to-one clinical somatic sessions are the best way to understand and feel your unique patterns of holding tension or stress in the body. I am continuing to offer private

clinical somatic session both in my Maplewood office and expect to be back in NYC by the end of March 2022.
