I am a movement educator and manual therapist. Primarily a teacher of teachers and a continued serious student of movement and touch, I have in depth education and experience in the places where the senses of movement and touch meet. I love the inquiry, the careful thinking, questioning, re-evaluating journey with my colleagues, my teachers, and my students. I wend my way way, always striving for clarity, always listening, always giving credit.

Founder of Gyrotonic Methodology
The GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® was created by Romanian-born Hungarian ballet dancer, Juliu Horvath. In the early 1980’s he began teaching a new movement system “Yoga for Dancers”, and later develop the GYROTONIC® Method, and his world-renowned Gyrotonic equipment. The GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® methods quickly gained an international following, becoming popular in Europe, Asia, and Australia, as well as in the USA. The GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® has now grown to encompass over 7800 Trainers in 52 countries. His full bio can be found at Gyrotonic.com.
He continues to create new programming for the GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® methods. He also conducts teacher training courses internationally and continues develop new GYROTONIC® equipment, and refine existing equipment designs. He is always developing a more common sense approach to health and well being, as he puts it, in a “seriously un-serious way”.
