After closing my clinical practice in mind-body medicine where I trained hundreds of people living with chronic medical conditions to develop self-empowerment, self-efficacy, and optimization of biomechanics, I taught many of those same methods to a class I taught at College of Marin in Kentfield, California from January 2015 to March 2020.

As soon as in-person classes resume in January 2022 I will be teaching a new and very unique women’s self-defense class, which focuses on situational awareness while learning to find and move from the center of mass in order to optimize biomechanics and presence. Students will be coached in how to claim their power and space through conscious embodiment as a way of life. See: Peaceful Warrior Woman: Protector of Your Body and Boundaries.
