I have been fascinated by the human body for as long as I can remember. At a young age I spent countless hours hanging upside down, imitating gymnasts on tv, dancing around in the garden and doing yoga with my mother. I was born in Ohio (USA) and moved to Belgium at a young age where I studied at de! Kunsthumaniora Hedendaagse Dans (BE), focusing on contemporary dance. Afterwards, in ArtEZ Hogeschool voor de Kunsten (NL), I decided to develop my knowledge as a choreographer. I created several pieces and performed in various festivals. Upon graduating, I worked for Cristina Planas Leitão and Cinzia Scoglionero, amongst others, and within Strange Strangers, as the co-founder, choreographer, and dancer of the organization.
Throughout the years of being immersed in the performing arts I noticed a need to explore the body in different ways than I had been educated. I had various exposures to yoga, specifically Anusara Yoga through my mother and her yoga studio. This curiosity led me to wanting to understand more about the notion of awareness and how we think. I have been self-studying neuroscience, psychology, and human behavior for the past two years and started to feel an urge to share my insights with others, which led me to teaching. As a teacher, my aim is to remain curious and open to different opinions and perspectives in the hope that I can continue learning and pass this knowledge on to others.
