has led massage and somatic workshops at Esalen and internationally for more than 40 years. She is a founding member of the Esalen Massage School, practices Gestalt awareness work, and participated in Esalen’s two-year somatic education program. She is also a licensed psychotherapist.
This workshop presents the specialized moves and strokes of Esalen Massage — from the intentional, long, integrating strokes to the gentle rotations/twists, to the more defined, detailed moves that are essential to the Esalen Massage practice — with an emphasis on the pelvic floor, torso, abdomen, and lower back. The instruction will take place through plenty of demonstrations, movement exercises, and hands-on class time.
