As a native of the Iowan prairies, I crave wide open landscapes. Having lived in Taipei, Chicago, and New York, maintaining inner spaciousness is a daily practice. I love the sensation of moving in space when dancing, and creating space within my body and mind through yoga. I hold a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance from the University of Iowa, and have created and taught yoga & creative movement programs in schools in Taipei, Chicago and Brooklyn.
In my classes, I teach variations on traditional yoga poses, but also use elements of dance, movement games, imaginative play, nature, music, art, STEM and literature. When ideas and information are delivered through movement, children are better empowered to take ownership of their health, their education, and their community.
