A FUNCTIONAL, HOLISTIC APPROACH TO HEALTH AND PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT.
Having spent most of my life as a competitive figure skater, I have been fortunate enough to experience and study many different styles of movement and therapy around the globe working with various coaches and professionals in many different fields, including: bodyART, Pilates, yoga, skating, strength and conditioning, dance, martial arts, acrobatics, performing arts and osteopathy. I believe that engaging and challenging your body, as well as your mind, in as many ways as possible is key to accessing potential and developing a healthy mind, body, and spirit.
