Connecting in movement

 

"Working with Erik's unique combination of movement, awareness and breath has been transformative and really helpful in naming patterns in my body and reclaiming balance in my stance, my walk/posture and my breath. Being able to tap into the power in my core - feeling it, first, expressing it, and finally use it to fuel my actions in my life. I am grateful also for the emotional release that comes naturally when I am taught to  pay attention in a very gentle, playful and loving way to my body's patterns, pain or needs."  S.M.B.  Artist

“Erik is a brilliant , sensitive, informed and inspired healer. His hands listen deeply and he sees the body with tender loving truth”…Gabrielle Roth author: Sweat Your Prayers.

 

And Rex Jarrel founder of the Yoga Barn on Martha’s Vineyard  states…

“I’ve embraced major transitions in my life in the past year and Erik’s work has supported my evolution as a person through changing professions to connecting with people to embodying myself as I’ve always wanted to be. I can’t recommend anything more highly than working with Erik for wellness.”

 

And William Russell, a contractor says… “ Erik’s astonishing durability has yielded a depth of knowledge unparalleled in the bodywork field.”

 

“Bringing people together in a rhythmic tribal atmosphere creates a unique experience of communication and learning that reaches back to the nights of our ancestors, as they gathered around the fire to the beat of the drum. A weekend like this creates the reunion of body mind and spirit on the path of individual integration and group unity” ...Erik states with wonder.

 

These workshops are a rare opportunity to explore, expand and experience new ways of living in integrated self-awareness.
