lead active lives. wear many hats.

maybe it even feels like we inhabit multiple, disconnected bodies. we shove these bodies in and out of clothes, chairs, cars, across towns to perform for us at schools, offices, gyms, home. sometimes we forget to look up and see what is before us, within us, surrounding us.

…pause. exhale. listen. there is more space for awareness, direction, connectivity, and clearer choices…

we are here to invite you, entice you, back to the inner knowing and artistry within our bodies. to recognize our bodies as creative intelligence in motion.

OBI is the unification of my work as a movement educator, somatic thinker, alexander technique teacher, dance maker, community gatherer, and mom. it is where i gather other voices that need to be heard.

this site is ever evolving, so swim through and return again.

Here are a couple of exciting posts by Dacher Keltner (professor of Psychology at UC Berkeley, the director of the …

Barefootedness boosts brain development and postural awareness! Kick off those shoes…

“…you might be surprised to learn that there’s scientific evidence that barefooted is better. Among other things, it’s important to development of the nervous system and to optimal brain development as well! Turns out the feet are the most nerve-rich parts of the human body, which means they contribute to the building of neurological pathways …
