About

Growing up hiking for days deep in the Canadian Rockies

instilled a deep love for the subjectivity of the natural world

– listening to how each place is a community of consciousness, ever changing. 

 

Teaching gross and subtle anatomy feels similar –

traversing our interior landscape of mountains, rivers

and the migrations of mind

that unite and differentiate each of us

through different eras of our life,

from conception to death.

 

Teaching therapeutic yoga, massage and anatomy cross culturally,

whether it was in Inuit communities in Northern Canada with Cirque du Soleil,

in Japan

or in the women’s yoga leadership training I co-founded in Bali…

each opened new doorways to what is universal and what is exquisitely unique.

 

I hope your calling

for more understanding, embodiment and awe can be enriched

by what is offered here.

 

Please be in touch if these resources can serve you and your community.

Grace’s Anatomy is an integrative embodied education

focusing on human potential 

as well as pathology. 

Traditionally, books like Grey’s Anatomy

focus on taking apart sick or dead bodies. 

Grace’s Anatomy focuses on

integrating

embodying &

befriending (y)our body as a

profoundly powerful & collaborative field of consciousness.

Shifting from object to subject,

dissection to integration…

Countless students have come up to me years after they studied with me,

and share that  this curriculum forever changed their experience,

inside and out. 

 

This education in embodiment is a birthright.
