“Angie, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for pouring into me and so many ladies during the ‘Empower Women’ Conference. I will never forget how you took time to allow us to seek God in our bodies and experience God’s love on a whole other level. The experience in your class was more than I could hope for…it was a defining moment for me. It consummated so much of who I am and what my calling and my ministry here on earth is all about. Thank you for your obedience to go where God told you to go and do what He called you to do.”

Dr. Jim Maness
Lead Pastor, Life Stream Church, Allendale
God created our bodies to work, play and feel, with movement for expression, communication and self-healing. Because 93% of human communication is non-verbal (movement plus vocal tone), a strong body-brain-FAITH connection and clear physical expression are critical for strong and healthy families, marriages and church communities. In other words, how we move matters.
Somatic movement education/therapy is a holistic approach to moving well that focuses on the internal experience of the moving body rather than an external end result like building muscle or losing weight. Moving the body with awareness and intention brings together the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual parts of our being.
As a Dynamic Embodiment Practitioner (DEP) and Certified Movement Analyst (CMA), I use the therapeutic movement modalities of Bartenieff Fundamentals, Laban Movement Analysis and aspects of Body-Mind Centering® to help people move with greater ease, think more clearly and live life with increased confidence and optimism. As a Christian, I use movement to bring others closer to the fullness of God.
My teaching comes from a Biblical worldview. I am passionate about sharing God’s vision for embodied faith, worship, service and, my favorite, marriages.
“In Him, we live and MOVE and have our being.” ~Acts 17:28
