I began my journey studying dance from Ballet to Brazilian dance. I have a BA in Dance from the University of Washington with emphasis in World Dance and Culture. I have 20 years of experience teaching dance and I am currently teaching Ballet and Creative dance for children. I have also taught Jazz, Contemporary, Hip Hop, African, Samba and Latin Dance. I began studying and later teaching Yoga since 2000 and I am a Certified Yoga Teacher from 8 Limbs Yoga Centers in Seattle. I teach Yoga for Kids, Vinyasa Flow, Core and Yoga for people with injuries and health conditions. I became a Physical Therapist Assistant in 2012 graduating from Lake Washington Institute of Technology. Since that time, I have focused my work in Pediatrics helping kids with special needs, developmental delays, health and orthopedic conditions.
I enjoy watching my students grow, become more confident and self expressive. I believe that everyone can benefit from practicing dance and/or yoga. I love helping kids and adults that have limitations that they are learning to work with and overcome. My mission is to encourage healing through movement.
My daughter was with miss Fawnia for over 4 years. She taught my daughter how to be a ballerina!
