from Paula

The body is the vessel that the mind lives in.
"My intention is to help others discover a deep, sensuous experience of the body by nourishing qualities of improvisation, play and curiosity in all aspects of our lives. My work with clients includes equine experiential learning practices that help us feel and understand ourselves with greater clarity. This happens when we experience the balancing awareness that horses uniquely offer, because they so clearly sense and reflect our inner emotional states.

My background is as an improviser, dancer, choreographer, writer, rider, teacher,and body therapist. I have always found that the most reliable and authentic teacher is the body, and that learning to listen to its wisdom helps to unravel many of the patterns or beliefs that limit our pleasure and creativity."

I am a Certified Laban Movement Analyst and a Registered Somatic Movement Educator and Therapist (RSME/T) accredited by ISMETA (International Somatic Movement Education and Therapy Association). I am also a Somatic Experiencing® practitioner, and am Guild-Certified in TTEAM (Tellington Touch Equine Awareness Method), working with horses and humans.

My writings on movement and dance have been published in Contact Quarterly, and my book, Our Horses, Ourselves: Discovering the Common Body will be published by Trafalgar Square Books in September 2017.
