Personal Profile


The work I teach is rooted in many somatic pioneers. Moshe' Feldenkrais and Thomas Hanna have had the greatest influence on my teachings and everything I teach has been birthed out of their pioneering work in the field of somatic movement and human development. I consider myself a lifelong learner. I believe humanity needs this work. It is about more than moving without pain... it is about FREEDOM.  May we all continue to grow in peacefulness and spaciousness through our somatic practice.  Peace, Theresa

This was my Yoga & Somatic Studio in Sister Bay, WI.  This studio grew organically as my skills grew.  Here I learned to practice, teach, and conduct clinical sessions for hundreds of students over the years.  I retired this studio when I began teaching for Essential Somatics.
