Private Lessons

✴

Embody the rhythm that pulses within your chest, the beat of life beginning
Embody the rhythm of your breath, of the moon waxing and waning,

of the ocean tides flowing in and out, in and out
Embody the rhythm of the seasons changing, the cycles of life repeating,

the rising and the setting of the sun
Embody the rhythm, beyond the beat of the drum

Free *Your* Movement

Whether you’ve never danced before or you’re a lifelong mover, I will enjoy meeting you where you are.

~ If you enjoy moving/dancing and want to access more movement freedom, new avenues for moving through grief, joy, or other emotions, this offering is for you.


~ If your movement freedom is inhibited by physical limitations; self-conscious thoughts; fear of judgement; you feel “stuck” in repetitive movement patterns; or you’re just starting out in dance, this offering is for you.

Note: Private lessons are not specific to Guinean traditional dance, unless requested.


I’ve been teaching movement classes for over 20 years and dancing all my life. I’ve experienced inhibitions, injuries and limitations that prevented me from enjoying and expressing in my body. Sharing from my embodied movement practices and dance training, I offer techniques and explorations to support you in accessing your own movement freedom.

What to Expect in Private, Online,
Free *Your* Movement Lessons:


Whether your lesson happens online or in person, each session begins with a discussion so I can design the time together in response to your personal needs and intentions. With a musical playlist for inspiration I will guide you through embodied awareness and movement explorations, and sometimes activities/stretches to increase range of motion and/or strength, as desired. You can follow along with me or rift off on your own. We’ll check in between tracks and continue orienting the lesson according to your needs and discoveries.

Sometimes energy gets stuck in the body, causing discomfort physically, emotionally and/or mentally. Free form movement and tuning in to our body can help to move things through, move them out, and create space for healing and greater wellbeing.

Giving ourselves time to move in an attentive way might elicit a big cry, a laughing fit or a knowing of something that needs to be written or spoken. It might simply bring along some relief from having listened to yourself and given your body time to “speak”. Whichever way it flows, I look forward to moving together.
