Domini Anne

"My statement to the world has always been about freedom of expression.The sacred union of physical, spiritual, emotional and artistic freedom is the heart of my be-ing. As a movement specialist, I see so many people who are imprisoned within their own bodies, and that lack of freedom affects them to the core.

I believe that when you feel free in your body, you ARE free. That moving our bodies is one of the most basic forms of expression we have. That the vibration of our grace in motion creates it’s own imprint on the world, and that the harmonization of these things can bring us closer to inner and outer Peace."

From my earliest memories, I was playing with tensegrity, momentum, velocity, force, and basically every interaction you could feel between your intention and the world that surrounded you. 

I am fascinated with the link between the breath, connective tissue and core strength, and am a perpetual student of breathwork, aerial yoga, functional anatomy and a variety of somatic methods. I am constantly exploring different approaches to body movement, and delight in integrating them for my clients. 

A master trainer in the Gyrotonic, Gyrokinesis and Galileo methodoligies, I delight both in breaking specific techniques down, and in combining them, depending on the person/class in front of me. I appreciate all perspectives, both hybrid and purist, and delight in exploring movement in all of it's forms.
