I teach & coach.
Private sessions, classes, workshops, retreats, & facilitator trainings. 
I also create, consult & collaborate.
Virtually, for now.


Since the mid-00's, I've taught a few subject areas within the field I call Embodiment Practice & Life. Pre-pandemic, much of my in-person teaching was based in my private studio space in San Francisco.

Everything is virtual now, but I still teach all the same subjects. 
  • Yoga-based Movement & Meditation
  • Feldenkrais¬†
  • Breath Practices from a variety of traditions
  • Embodied Living & Practice as Life
  • Smart Work Practice for Mind-body Support
  • Business for Visionary People
  • Freeform Movement as a Means of Self Discovery & Realization
  • Body-based Meditation & Relaxation, including Yoga Nidra




I work privately with individuals, couples & small groups, including work teams.


Sessions are a mix of conversation / active listening combined with practices + support, according to needs and intentions.
  • Targeted Healing of Physical Injury
  • Somatic Recovery of Trauma & Stress
  • Learning to Breathe / Breath Refinement
  • Working with Mind-body Challenges & Life Changes
  • Body-based Spiritual Attunement Work
  • Mentoring & Support of Vision
  • Meditation, relaxation, self-inquiry and/or reflection
  • Movement Therapy
Our intentions continually attune to uncovering & fostering possibilities as experiences of wellbeing and flourishing that can be seen and felt.  




Occasionally I make things for those I work with and serve.


I'm a creative and love to make things for those I serve. I've made everything from aromatherapy essential oils blends to support rest, workbooks to help clients process a complicated experience, guided meditations in response to an array of factors. 

My favorite in recent years is The Secret Life of the Body Mudra Card Deck.



About me personally.


I currently live on the ancestral lands of the Ohlone, Ramaytush and Muwekma First Nations, otherwise known as San Francisco.

My pronouns are she/her.

I grew up in the American South in the 1960's & 70's on feral land that had been my grandparent's farm during the Depression, the ancestral lands of Mvskoke (Muskogee/ Creek) First Nation.

I have experienced early and deep grief, loss and trauma, alongside certain privilege, lots of joy and adventure. 

I've lived numerous other places including Athens, Georgia in the 80's, Czechoslovakia in the early 90's and New Orleans, pre-Katrina.

I feel fortunate that my family was inherently political and community engaged in a practical way. Some of my earliest memories of overheard conversations about campaign strategy, social justice and truths debated. For me, the personal has always been political.

I began studying wisdom traditions as a preteen and have never stopped. I studied literature & media arts in college.


I've been the recipient of Soros Foundation Fellowhips, have co/founded a number of organizations & businesses.

I'm a walker of cities & hiker of trails.

I'm a writer. I love photography, making digital media, consulting on creative projects & collaboration with like-minded people.
