I became an Open Floor Movement teacher in 2016. I am a working member who serves on the Mentor Circle. I am also a 5Rhythms® Teacher taught by Gabrielle Roth. I am on the board of the ICMTA (International Conscious Movement Teachers Assoc.)I have been a professional performer for 35 years. As an actress, I have performed on Broadway, toured internationally, and have extensive credits in theater, film and television. I received my MFA from NYU Tisch School of the Arts Graduate Acting Program. Presently, I am a senior faculty member in the Theater School at California Institute of the Arts, where I have been teaching Movement for Actors full-time for the past 19 years. I have previously taught in the theater schools at Hunter College (CUNY) and Colorado College.As a yogini, I have been studying and teaching yoga for over 30 years. I am a certified instructor and specialize in Integral Hatha, Kundalini, Vinyasa Flow, and Yoga Works style yoga. I have participated in and facilitated circles throughout my life (a Buddhist meditation group, a secular meditation group, Intenders of the Highest Good, Goddess ceremonies, a women’s writing group, a women’s book group, an NVC practice group…). Several sublime master teachers have taught me, though my greatest teachings have come from my two (now grown) children.I continue to stay challenged by my partner of twelve years, Carsten Holz, who I met on the dance floor and who is also an Open Floor teacher.
