About Me

My training as a SASTAT-certified teacher of the Alexander Technique spans 2 continents over 4 years; from New York City, with Nanette Walsh at the Riverside Initiative for the Alexander Technique (RIAT) to South Africa, with Lucia Walker and Sharyn West. I actively combine the practical insights I’ve gained through a decade of experience as a professional actor, singer and voice artist alongside meditation and mindfulness studies. I'm a current student of Archetypal psychology at the Tamboo Academy in Knysna, South Africa and am training towards my certificate as a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP) through Somatic Experiencing International. These experiences provide a variety of perspectives to deepen and enrich my client offering.

After completing a degree in Politics and Economics at the University of Cape Town, I sought tools to help me deal with stress and anxiety. One powerful tool I found was Sudarshan Kriya and meditation, introduced to me through the Art of Living under the guidance of Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. The experience opened up a whole new world for me.

​I went on to study acting at the Atlantic Theater conservatory in New York City, which I would call home for the next decade -  I picked up guitar and started studying the Roy Hart Method as a way to use voice as a mode of expression, freedom and healing. But, despite creative fulfillment, I was riddled with stress, self-doubt and a consistent stream of injuries incurred from physical tension playing guitar and vocal strain - I was desperately seeking a modality that would empower me in a direction of self-healing and wellness. During one of my shifts at the Park Slope Food Coop, a chance meeting introduced me to the Alexander Technique, and slowly I began to experience profound shifts: a deep reduction in pain, a calmer and quieter nervous system, a more even emotional temperament, a developing confidence and comfort within my body which I had not experienced before.

My mission is to share the gift of mindful embodiment to support others in their own healing and empowerment. This work is about finding ease and freedom no matter what body you inhabit. Through weekly or bi-weekly sessions, we come to recognize our habitual patterns and learn new ways of being.
