I am a Guild Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner® and a firm believer in the transformative powers of curiosity and creativity. I discovered the Feldenkrais Method® in 2011 and was immediately drawn to the spirit of “biological optimism” that is embodied in this unique somatic approach. In my classes, I emphasize the potential for every individual to discover new possibilities for more comfortable and joyful movement. I strive to create a safe a playful atmosphere where child-like exploration is encouraged and celebrated.
In my teaching I draw on lessons from experiences as a musical composer and improviser, immigrant rights activist, taxi driver and student of speech language pathology. Today, I’m an enthusiast of parkour and contact improvisation. I am a co-leader of the experimental DC Movement Research group along with contemporary dancer Juliana Pongutá. I am currently collaborating with local dance legend Michelle Ava, founder of Joy of Motion dance center, to produce a multi-media stage show to be presented in July 2017.
I am the central organizer of the DC Feldenkrais Festival, a free day-long event that has been held five times since Fall 2014. I have taught classes in many local venues and made special presentations at the University of Maryland Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center and the Dance Educators Training Institute of the Baltimore County Public School System.
