Movement with Attention Slow Variation Subtlety Enthusiasm Flexible Goals The Learning Switch Imagination and Dreams Awareness By working with people through movement to create new neuro connections in the brain. I connect with the person where they are at, and with the each person as a WHOLE being and not just as a diagnosis. When working with children, I find out what they child likes or wants to do and create a way to make it better and easier for them to do it. I watch what my students are doing and I take them as far as they are able to go for the lesson to get results. I trust my intuition and experience will guide me in what to do next to best help my students. I show up on time and guarantee results that my students will become more focused and understand better who they are in the world. I make children comfortable and happy to work with me by always adding in FUN. I believe that having trusting relationship with my students will magnify the intention behind the lesson so that my students sleep better, move better and be overall happier and feeling better! I’m a movement specialist. If this sounds like someone you’d like working with your child, give me a call.
