St. Paul, MN
Bio: I am a Restorative Exercise Specialist and Pilates teacher, with an MFA in Creative Writing from Hamline University in St. Paul. I integrate these aspects in my life as writer, movement teacher and life-long learner. "Realigning" refers to many things—rebuilding my life after the death of my husband; reconnecting with my body after the consequences of long-term caregiving, trauma, grief, and mourning; that our movement and quality of life (strength, mobility, flexibility) absolutely depend on the alignment of our body parts; and to life in general—embracing and accepting (peppered here & there with a little kicking, screaming and foot-dragging along the way) the continual, beautiful, spiraling dance of holding on and letting go, from our very first breath to our last. "Red," because, y'know. The hair.
