"I believe reaching your full expression of fitness and health is an ongoing process that will change, fluctuate and it is best to be fun. On top of normal injuries caused by physical trauma, sometimes we struggle internally with challenging issues that express themselves in our physical body as an attempt to deal with and to heal them, and as a result of somehow not being able to do it internally or psychologically at that particular time. Reaching out through your physical body first, rather then through the psychological processes can put you back into the innate healing mode that we all have. I believe there is intelligence that lives within your physical body that bypasses your mind, your logic and your ego. Respecting the timing of your body healing processes and embracing transformative power of mind-body connection is an integral part of my practice."
