My greatest teacher has been and continues to be my body, my breath, and the bodies of my clients. We have much to learn from the body's resistance, its pain and tension, as well as its incredible resilience, strength, and openness. Your body tells the whole story.
Half intuitive healer, half scientist, Hayley offers a path to strength, self-confidence and awe for the miraculous mechanics of the human body by creating a motivating environment to explore our body-minds from the inside out. Reflecting her love for all forms of movement- from dance to strength training, Hayley's commitment to radical self-care and the natural world permeate her juicy flow class, inviting you into intimacy with all parts of yourself through the vehicle of the breath.
In addition to being inspired by the latest myofascial and neuroscience, her teaching is infused with the wisdom traditions of Tantric Buddhism, Ayurveda, Chinese Medicine, guided visualization and somatic psychology. As a passionate body nerd and philosophy student, she can either be found with her head in a book about human anatomy and technologies of liberation or out in nature, on the TRX or on her mat exploring her own. As a celebrated massage therapist and personal trainer specializing in chronic pain, she's able to translate the intricacies of healthy movement and how to correct imbalances through restorative alignment with an attitude of compassion, curiosity and playfulness.
She encourages her students to be somanauts on and off the mat, intricately exploring where their bodies and minds are balanced and fluid as well as where they get tight and stuck. This intimacy with our inner body translates as greater inner peace, more easeful relationships and fluidity and joy of movement in class, at work and at play. Inspired to share the wisdom of the earth by her teacher, Abby Tucker, each class is based on the cycle of the moon and the seasons through a combination of unique sequencing (think outside the box of traditional vinyasa), challenging asana for all levels, meditation and pranayama.
Massage is Medicine
Healing touch is not a luxury but an imperative aspect of preventative and alternative medicine. As a therapeutic massage therapist whose toolbox includes modalities from both eastern and western healing lineages, I invite my clients into a participatory exploration into empowered self-healing. Softening, relaxing, letting go, sinking into the flow of your body is actually a radical act.
