She's been a movement and fitness nerd since the early '90s, and has injured pretty much everything at least once. And she still trains Shaolin kung fu, turns cartwheels, and does all the fun things without pain.

She has taught at national and international conferences; is an adjunct professor at Marymount Manhattan College, where she teaches Dance Anatomy; and teaches fun, practical anatomy classes for dance, yoga, and Pilates teachers.

 

She lives and works in New York City, helping people all over the world to heal their bodies, and accept the radical notion that it's possible to life a pain-free life.

 

You might find her online referencing obscure graphic novels, or offline hanging out in cadaver labs.
