What makes your classes feely?
I teach from my heart – using my own physical/emotional/energetic experience to guide moment to moment. I have found that crawling inside, paying attention and expressing sensation from experience is the most authentic way for me to teach. I love to play with language that evokes a physical and emotional reaction; whether it's metaphors, words that feel empowering, quotes that are influencing my life in a given moment...and, coming from a dance background, I place extra emphasis on riding the rhythm of the music – so everything becomes a real dance of freeeeedom.
An influential book in your life is...
The Untethered Soul by Michael A. Singer.
A passion of yours people may or may not know about is...

Why do you love teaching at MISFITSTUDIO?
Ooof this could turn into a 1000 page essay real quick. But, to keep it short & sweet: the misfitmethod profoundly shifted my relationship to movement and myself. It completely transformed me. My body – once something I viewed as a vessel to constantly try to change, shape and mold – I now view as a work of art, a tool to express MY art, my language, my soul. Every time I untangle, whether it be leading a class or on my own time, I feel a tremendous sense of connection to my deepest self. I am overcome with exceptional kindness for my body. I am present. I am moving from my heart. So – to be able to empower others to share in this transformational experience – it's absolute magic.
