Why I block
To be effortlessly free in my body so I can hike, swim, bike, permablitz, beekeep, bake sourdough bread, do yoga, sit, stand and walk anywhere with ease. I’ve experienced that a little self-care = a lot of enjoying life.
I am someone who likes taking charge of my wellness and believes there are many doors to wellbeing. I discovered Block Therapy after a few years of trying to recover from a car crash and several iconic falls on icy Canadian sidewalks.
Combined these resulted in chronic pain and constant re-injury. I tried every type of body work from traditional to pretty out there, in an effort to reclaim my strength, freedom of mobility, and energy.
For me the Block Therapy combination of deep fascia release, isometric strength building, alignment that stays and the meditative action of being deeply in the body did it. So much so, I certified as a Block Therapy Teacher, and subsequently as a BT Therapist to provide individualized services and treatments. I continue in advance training with the program’s founder Deanna Hansen, Certified Athletic Therapist. I am a certified reflexologist and in AB Adaptive Body Work.
What I am up to when I’m not blocking?
I am a permaculturist in germination and am working on taming and cultivating my own edible forest in an urban environment. With the amazing help of volunteers of Transition NDG, I have designed and am running two shared food gardens in the streets of Montreal.
For 7 years, my friend Wendi and I have run a project called thebreadline NDG (on FB) where we teach anyone interested in the beauty of sourdough bread, pasta, baguettes, pizza etc. We also have free active voluptuous starter to share - always :)
