We're an online somatic movement studio. We offer body-mind movement programs to help people heal, recover movement freedom, overcome limitations, prevent decline, and develop new skills.
Tell us about yourself
I used to have a career in television and music production. Looking for a way to change my stress and end my chronic back pain led to my interest in studying movement. I've been a movement teacher and somatic practitioner for over 20 years now. I specialize in an innovative method called NeuroMovementⓇ, which integrates the science of neuroplasticity with movement. It's remarkably effective in helping people recover healthy brain and body functions where typical approaches fall short.
After years of working individually with adults and children in my private practice and teaching group classes, I felt responsible for making this work more accessible. There are so many people suffering needlessly with pain and limitations, and very few of us practitioners are out there. Once I saw what a tremendous difference this makes to a person's well-being, I couldn't unsee that. I knew offering classes for students to access online would be my contribution. Knowing I can help someone live a happier life and discover their own capacity is what gets me excited every day.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Turning everything I've ever learned how to do into something that has a lasting form to be offered to more than one person at a time. Most of my valuable work in the past is something that only exists in real-time or as a one-off, trading time for value. Now, I'm creating in a way that I can keep giving value to a limitless amount of people over and over again. Breaking the time barrier is a huge accomplishment!
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
Learning new skills… all the time! I can't believe how many different new skills I've learned and still have to learn. I get tired. Managing my own energy, time, and expectations is challenging. It's a good thing I'm in the business of learning! I'm figuring it out every day.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Be interested in learning the business of business.
- Keep your goals flexible.
- Make sure to take of yourself!
