If we could learn how to balance rest against effort, calmness against strain, quiet against turmoil, we would assure ourselves of joy in living and psychological health for life.

*******************

Kelly has been deeply immersed & mentored in the work of a somatic pilates approach for the past several years through Bodies Mind, in Marin County, California.  The work implements movement sequencing from Joe Pilates, approached through a somatic lens.  In both dance & pilates, Kelly focuses on gravity & bones.

In addition, Kelly has been moving her whole life, be it in gymnastics, skiing, swimming, hiking, surfing, etc.  She got her Bachelors of Interior Architecture & nearly minored in dance at the University of Oregon, with a focus mainly on modern (release technique) & African dance.  She then took years of release & floorwork classes in the San Francisco Bay Area, primarily at ODC &  ROCO.

Her thesis project in 2000 was designing a “movement therapy center”, which she realizes, has continued to deeply permeate her life & work to this day.

She is a conceptual artist, focusing on large-scale public art & mixed media (be it via installation, photography, dance, poetry, &/or video, ETC.!).  She has often tangoed the above with the gathering of people together for experiential events, as a type of “experiential curator” or “creative midwife”.  

The cumulative years of influence around movement & the use of + perception of space via dance, architecture, art, pilates, & life have inspired & led her to teach.
