How long have you been teaching?
I have been teaching movement for OVER SIXTEEN YEARS!!!
What makes your classes feely?
My desire for sensational awareness. This idea of becoming aware of EVERY SINGLE CELL.
The ability to push the sensational boundaries is exciting, but maybe moreso is the ability to listen to the smallest of feelings.
An influential book in your life is...
Is "The Power of Now" cheesy? I listen to the audio book when I need some calm.

Why do you love teaching at MISFITSTUDIO?
Before I even took a class there, I new it was the home for me. I had been teaching my own version of Pilates, my own mash-up of movement techniques and timing things to the music (which in most programs is suggested as being "background"). When I read about MISFIT online I thought "this is the place that will give me the freedom to teach MY way". Then I took Amber's class and finally found someone else who was shaking shit up, but even LOUDER! I love teaching at MISFITSTUDIO because I've always been a MISFIT, and this is where I belong.
