At the Studio

Private sessions, classes and workshops @ Life Options Studio


Awareness Through Movement® classes are a somatic approach to learning. More than just a movement practice, they are a way of learning how to learn. Gentle guided movements awaken the plasticity of the brain, allowing the body and the psyche to effortlessly overcome perceived limitations to find grace and ease.

Classes meet weekly on Tuesday mornings  from 9:30 – 10:30 am. Pay-as-you-go for $20 per lesson OR purchase a 6-class pass for $90.  Passes are good for 3 months from date of purchase. Please dress in loose, comfortable clothing suitable for rolling on the floor, and bring a mat and a towel with you. Drop-ins welcome.

Private Sessions

Are you more comfortable with a one-on-one approach to change?  Together we’ll use movement, body awareness and learning strategies to explore how you can move through life a little bit easier.  Schedule a private session at my Glen Ellyn studio.

Live a more Colorful Life

I love, Love, LOVE color. Nothing makes me happier than helping you find the colors that speak to you and make your world an expression of you. Using a process of creative self-discovery, we work together to uncover your color sensibility, learn which tones and shades speak to you, and unlock your color world. From what you wear to how you decorate, you can color your world with rich, supportive hues. Let me be your personal color guide.
