Physical therapy treatments and private yoga instruction provide an opportunity to explore various aspects of movement and lifestyle, which can guide you in your journey towards healing. Hybrid physical therapy treatments integrate traditional physiotherapy with yoga and conditioning, offering effective solutions for injuries and chronic conditions. A comprehensive approach includes a thorough assessment of your posture and movement, hands-on manual therapy (available for in-person sessions), and neuromuscular retraining. We then create a personalized therapeutic exercise program designed for you to practice at home. Follow-up sessions are conducted to refine our findings and your program. In person (Sebastopol, CA) and telehealth sessions available.

As a physical therapist, my primary goal is to assist you in reaching your highest potential as a dancer, all while considering your long-term well-being. Whether you're aiming for a higher jump, greater foot flexibility, open hips, increased strength, or if you're currently managing an injury, I have a range of ideas and strategies to offer. If you're actively working with an injury, I can help you with a rehabilitation plan that will keep you in peak dance condition, even during periods of rest. Please share your aspirations and challenges with me, and together, we can work towards achieving your dance goals.
During my high school years, I dedicated four years of intensive study at the San Francisco Ballet, and that experience has given me a profound understanding of the unwavering desire to excel in one's craft. I once believed that dancing more was the sole solution to improvement, but as I delved deeper into my studies of yoga and physical therapy, I realized that the key to enhancement lay in other disciplines. Yoga offers a unique avenue for enhancing foot flexibility and ensuring the longevity of your feet, knees, hips, and spine beyond your professional dance training and career. Physical therapy complements this journey by enabling you to engage in effective cross-training, maintaining uniform strength throughout your body and transforming you into the best dance athlete you can be.
