In elementary and high school I struggled because the traditional method of teaching (textbook reading assignments and straight-up lectures) didn’t match my way of learning. I learn in a kinesthetic way - I need to move and feel in my body. My passion for learning and teaching began in massage school. I remember how challenging it was to use one part of my brain to memorize anatomical terms, muscles and bones, and another part of my brain/body to learn how to touch and be present with people. This was just the beginning of understanding and bridging body wisdom with knowledge.
While in Chiropractic school I brought a group of yoga students and teachers into the cadaver lab. This was a huge success, and my excitement around teaching just got deeper and deeper from there. My friend, Stacey Rosenberg, invited me to be a part of her teacher training in San Francisco. This was the beginning of AnatomySense, which has evolved over the years of collaborating with many fantastic world-class teachers.
What I love about teaching is watching people understand something they thought was very hard to learn.
Clarity, movement, and palpation (touch) seem to be the best and most digestible ways to make anatomy fun and exciting. Join me online, in a workshop or trainings so I can help you understand you more.
