When we moved here from Seattle 10 years ago, I had no idea that I would be helping people hang upside down and fly in hammocks as part of my work. I have gathered many tools as a gymnast, dancer, yoga instructor, massage therapist and student/teacher of Ayurveda during my 20+ years of practice.
Here in Greenville, my work has taken flight in The Dream Room, an in-home space that not only houses my massage practice but also supports my growing work in the aerial arts including aerial yoga, bungee, aerial massage and beginning aerial silks. I love helping people embody their dreams of flight, fitness and health whether it’s in the air or on the ground, and my tool bag ranges from the specific and scientific to the poetic and intuitive.
In 2013 I was the first person to bring SVA Transdermal Marma Therapy™ and AntiGravity® Yoga and Fitness to North Carolina. I am a certified One Star Instructor Trainer with AntiGravity® (the originators of 2-point aerial yoga), helped Purple Blossom start their aerial yoga program and am offering Greenville’s first beginning aerial silks instruction. I am also creating a new system of aerial bodywork and therapeutics that uses the hammock to create fluid water-like motion and soothe the nervous system. I have been a licensed massage therapist since 2001, and I make many of my own Ayurvedic herbalized oils used in my Ayurvedic massage and consultation `practice.
Outside of my regular work offerings, my husband and I host Contemplative Dance Practices and Barefoot Boogies. A group of fellow dancers and I are working to offer adult contemporary dance classes at Purple Blossom, and soon, my husband, kids and I plan to launch Family Circus Workout, an interactive fitness system that builds community through fitness and play. I love my work. And I love sharing it as I continue to grow, heal and transform in my own life.
