I am a dancer, an artist facilitator and an expressive arts therapist. I teach weekly dance & yoga classes in rural communities.  For over 20 years, I have been facilitating creativity-based experiences – in schools, on weekend retreats, in day-long workshops, camps and classes. My passion is to hold safe and supportive spaces where people of all ages come together to co-create and grow. I aspire to contribute to an inclusive, dynamic and peace-full world where the real juice comes from blending the diversity of age, geography, culture and creative medium.  What inspires me is witnessing people’s creativity in action: the bubbling up of possibility, the emotional connection with themselves and each other, a tangible sense of presence & joy!

Feet First – Cultivating Intelligence in the Feet

Workshop: Sunday May 5th, 1:00 – 4:00 PM | Price $55 + HST

A healthy understanding of the structure and movement of the foot is the key to structural stability and mobility in the hips and lower back (and virtually the whole body). Changing perspective on your feet will increase the health and well-being of the foundational elements of your body.

In this workshop, we will take a deep dive into the feet and how we develop patterns or tendencies in the feet that can affect the rest of the body, particularly the ankle, knee and hip joints. We will spend some time looking at individual foot patterns and how to address them. For example, if a student has dropped arches, we will work on poses that assist in rebuilding and strengthening those arches. We will examine tendencies like pronation and supination and how to work on neutralizing strong patterns or habits we develop in the feet. Common concerns like bunions and toe crowding will also be addressed.

Starting from the ground up, you will work with props to stimulate the feet and draw awareness to areas of tightness, weakness and soreness. In seated and standing poses you will learn to tools of how to optimize the potential of the feet and address any issues of conditions that you are currently experiencing with your feet.
