Another passion of mine is moving my body. Ever since I was a kid, I’ve always loved to listen to a beat, and move my body in whatever way it wanted to. I keep my body moving in three ways each week, I teach and train the Brazilian art form of Capoeira, I teach a class called Power Pop at an amazing women only dance studio in Oakland called Hipline, and I've recently added a barre class and a foam rolling class at Remedy Barre.
So many studies are out there that talk of the benefits of exercise: releasing endorphins, getting better sleep, improving immunity. I just thrive on it, and also strive each day to give my body everything it needs: water, the right food, a balance of exercises with strength/aerobic/restorative.
So! Come move with me! Anyone can play Capoeira, but it does help to be healthy and have healthy joints. Power Pop is for any woman that wants to gain strength and have fun at the same time, and barre/foam rolling is just great for everybody. Really, the best.
