OSF is a unique somatic, healing, and creative practice, a journey into releasing tensions and shedding outer layers, letting go into greater power, dynamism, and nuance in one’s movement and creative practice.

Sessions include improvisation, deep-state work with imagery, movement explorations, and partner studies.

A poetic, intuitive approach to accessing greater physical freedom while cultivating imagination, courage, and specificity in movement.

This work is deeply rooted in and fluidly expanded from Skinner Releasing Technique, combining influences from Alexander Technique, Zen Buddhism, and ideo-kinesis.  

Appropriate for all levels of movers.
