Covid-19 working restrictions: I’m taking a phased return, alongside other soft tissue therapists, from late July onwards. Depending on demand from existing clients and reduced working hours, I may not be able to see new clients until the autumn. I’m happy to respond to enquiries in the meantime if you want to know more about what Rolfing is or might be able to do for you.
I’m a Certified Rolfer™ and freelance dance artist. As a Rolfer, I bring an in-depth understanding of physical change and movement education from 15 years working as a professional contemporary dancer, yoga practitioner/teacher and lecturer in the UK’s conservatoire system of HE vocational training.
I first encountered Rolfing Structural Integration as a dance artist, looking to unpick some patterns of strain that were becoming increasingly part of my life both in the studio and out. Although important and useful positive changes happened in my dancing experience through the Rolfing series, the more important changes manifested in day-to-day experience: breathing, walking, standing and everyday relationships all became more spacious; easier in a way that seemed spontaneous and un-forced.
A transatlantic transplant, I initially trained in Canada at Quinte Ballet School and the School of Toronto Dance Theatre before gaining my Pg-Dip and M.A. at London Contemporary Dance School. I completed my Rolfing training at the European Rolfing Association in Munich.
Also a keen cyclist, I’m always interested in helping cyclists understand how they can minimise postural strain on two wheels.
A little known fact about me: I’m half Bajan and no, I can’t do the accent!
