With 13 years of professional experience, I have a very skilled and embodied application as a kinesiologist (working as a practitioner since 2008 and also as a trainer/assessor since 2010). I am a qualified Sensual Embodied Dance Teacher and Non-Linear Movement Method Teacher. I've also completed trainings in intuitive alchemy (which is about creating what you love using intuition and principles of alchemy).
These trainings have supported me in developing and refining my sensitivity to feel subtle energy and my empathetic ability to be in touch with the internal experiences of my clients, as well as my understanding of where to place focus in order to create positive change. I also have a good understanding of the workings of the body and its various systems.
I have a thirst for understanding how people (including me!) tick so, along with the above, I have joyfully studied many different systems such as astrology, human design, gene keys, menstrual cycle awareness, goddess archetypes. (I also majored in History and Psychology at university). These fields offer me further insight into the tapestry of each of us.

My most recent revelations have come through learning about the nervous system. Mapping how my nervous system tends to operate allowed me to perceive the subtleties of it and brought so much more acceptance and capability to my life.
Moving my body is an important part of life for me. I have spent thousands of hours dancing in various classes and workshops of ballet, hip hop, African, belly dancing, classical Indian, kundalini, 5 Rhythms and devotional erotic dance. As well as dancing at home. Qi gong and tai chi have been beneficial practices at different times in my life. Movement practices have given me a connection and awareness of my body. For me it is a key in integrating and expressing life. In spontaneous dance is where I feel most powerful, free and alive.
