Somatic classes online, free or by donation
'Free Healthcare for all' is a most important - and accessible - concept for all.
People should always have access to education to learn about their bodies and how to influence their own health.
I don't see why we can't create that ourselves...
Now and always, I will be offering classes in Somatic Stretch®, and sharing guest teachers of other modalities you can explore.
The world needs healthy people and resonant support ~ critical activism by dedicated, calm breathers.
With infectious inspiration we will be creating a virus that kills fear and fosters strong immune systems and creative thinking.
If you can donate, it allows us to keep this going and ensure that those who cannot pay can always have support to improve their own health.
We are our best healthcare.
All are welcome, anytime, always.
Please share this link with others so they can access free classes too.
These times call for an embodied nobility of mind and mission.
This is what we are here to do.
"For me, it has been a rare experience finding a teacher that in addition to teaching the mechanics of a subject, also seeps energy into the cells of my soul through her intent of healthcare for all. I have been awakening to my possibilities in a deep and rich way through your classes. Given my enthusiasm I now have a number of friends following you and expressing their thanks to the rewards they are discovering in somatic stretching. It is a beautiful web of self care you are weaving for us".

Shiatsu, Fractals and Stretch:
Wednesday August 12th: 9:30-11:00 am PST
This is a longer, 90-minute workshop to go over what fractals are, why geometry is part of our nervous system responses to tension, and points that can be used to release inner tension based on fractal anatomy. Come learn to stretch and deepen the release! For a full program on this subject, you can purchase the Problems, Pains and Solutions online program here.
"My heart is lighting up in response to this work and your presence. Deep bow".
Saturday July 18; Hara class 1
The Hara is the abdomen and all the organs of your body. In this class we introduce how to work your own abdomen and where areas of tension may accumulate - and also how that tension arises.
"Through Somatic Stretching you have inspired me in understanding the magic and power I hold to be my best medicine".
Saturday July 25th: Toronto beginner stretch and meet Lilian Jarvis
I arrived to our home studio in Toronto to see my mamma, Lilian Jarvis, the creator of Somatic Stretch. At 89, Lilian is still getting on the floor every day for two hours to help her body and mind stay lithe and happier. I wanted you to meet her and so we stretch together and learn more about this pioneer in the somatic field who raised me!
Monday July 27th: Powerful points for lower back
Today we discussed points in the low back that unlock deep areas of the pelvis and down the legs - oh and in the torso too because these points are that good. I shared some insights on airline flight amidst Covid today, and what really matters to keep us protected on the road, or anywhere else.
Saturday August 1: Slow stretch and chill
Today we just did what we do, and got more tension out and more bliss in.
Monday August 3: Lower body low down
Today we worked on WHERE that lower back pain comes from and how to work it from the inside out in a variety of ways.
