I am a Body-Mind Centering® Practitioner and a certified Infant Developmental Movement Educator from The School of Body Mind Centering®, founded by Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen.
I started my explorations of the mind at N.Y.U, gaining a degree in Psychology. Not satisfied with exploring the patterns of the mind without the interplay of the body, I went on to study Ayurveda with Dr. Vasant Lad at The Ayurvedic Institute in New Mexico. Ayurveda continues to teach me how to release holding patterns of the mind through the body’s natural intelligence. I am an active student of Ayurveda, The Science of Life, and have experienced the affects of its healing powers as a resource for balance and renewal.
My desire for hands-on training led me to get a license in massage therapy at The Swedish Institute. And around the same time, I became a certified Yoga Teacher at Rasa Yoga. Since 2001, I have been practicing Yoga with Genny Kapuler. For the past fifteen years, I have focused on movement and touch as a means for transformation, with my longtime study under Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen. While studying with Bonnie, I had the pleasure of meeting Sandra Jamrog, and spent time observing her work with babies. Her wisdom, grace and heart centered ways of being with babies continue to inspire me. I continued my studies by attending The Sacred Yew Institute training in Biodynamic Cranio Sacral Therapy with Michael Dunning. My love for Embryology, as an embodiment of our wholeness, continues to deepen through Bonnie’s teachings. Bonnie has been instrumental in Reawakening Me to movement as a study of consciousness. My journey with Body Mind Centering® has been a source of connection and ease in my life’s Path.
