Weena Pauly-Tarr has been working and playing in the worlds of dance, movement training and somatic therapy in NYC for the last 23 years.

Weena has been trained as a teacher in various movement modalities (Yoga, Mindfulness Meditation, Pilates, Functional Strength, SE) and is currently working as a C-IAYT Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapist and a Somatic Experiencing practitioner.

She founded her somatic therapy practice called ReConnect in 2008, where she offers somatic therapy sessions for individuals and facilitates somatic movement groups. (Her upcoming SE+AM offering is linked below).

Weena is a team member and co-facilitator for Rooted Global Village, a virtual culture-building community centered on embodied liberation and communal healing.

As a dancer she has been a company member of STREB, Brian Brooks Moving Company, David Neumann/Advanced Beginner Group, Young Jean Lee's Theater Company and most recently with Katie Workum.

She is currently one of the co-founders of the Authentic Movement collective, Duvet- where eight movement artists explore performance and radical culture development using an Authentic Movement practice and offer improvisational performances, events and classes.

In early 2020, Weena created SE+AM, which explores the synergy of Somatic Experiencing and Authentic Movement.

She lives in NYC with her husband, four kids and bunny.
