“The simple rose, at each moment of its slow blossoming, is as open as it can be. The same is true of our lives.” – Mark Nepo
I provide in-home movement and meditation lessons, as well as hands-on bodywork and cooking/food support in the New York City area. Certified in Yoga and Zero Balancing, with long-term study of Daoist Qigong and meditation practices, my calling is to guide others in their unique journey of body, mind and spirit. Yoga, Qigong, meditation, and body/energy work are gateways to steadiness and spaciousness, both of which we need to live with peace and joy. Wordless spaces foster our sense of play and creativity, along with our natural state of being.
Food is the energy we take in, the light from the sun, that allows us to be rooted in ourselves and the world. It is our first and best medicine. I do not follow prescriptive food advice (unless it is necessary, which sometimes it is!), but rather work with intuition to help clients find the best joyful and attentive way of eating for themselves. For some clients, I prepare or cook food to support this area within their busy professional and personal lives. I came to working with food through the study of herbalism, and most strongly through the experience of illness. I am able to work with people recovering from digestive surgeries, those on special/specific diets, those having chemotherapy or extensive dental work (I have been through both), and anyone who simply wants to have a loving relationship with food.
The bodywork I offer, Zero Balancing, was created by Dr. Fritz Smith, Osteopath and Acupuncturist. It is a holistic, hands-on bodywork that amplifies health and vitality through balancing body energy with body structure. Sessions can reduce discomfort and pain, promote postural alignment, and release tissue held memory. Zero Balancing is a tactile way of experiencing the relationship between your physical body and that which we cannot see, using gentle touch and attention to support integration and wholeness. It can allow for expanded states of consciousness, quiet insight, and knowing.

“May your soul’s purpose be made clear to you, may you express your true divine nature, may you live in peace, be blessed with happiness, prosperity and good fortune, and know true love. May the plants rise up to heal you, the trees bear witness to your generous spirit, the birds sing your praises, and earth receive and transform your pain. So may it be. . .” – Gail Faith Edwards, Prayers for the Wild Heart Tribe
