While all those bikers had their thing going on in France, for me this past month has been an amazing Tour de Force for providing Network Care!  It started mid-July with a half day workshop that Jenny and I created and facilitated - Awaken to Action - hosted by the dynamic duo Dr. Aimee and Ian Davis at In Touch Wellness in Rockland, Maine.  We had a wide range of participants from relative Network Care ...Read more

Testimonials

"Results for me started within the first week. I noticed that I wasn't stiff waking up each morning.  Now more than three years later my posture and muscle tension aren't the only things that have dramatically changed.  I eat much healthier, exercise regularly, I have improved my relationship with my brother, and I no longer fear change when it knocks on my door."

Fifteen years ago I would not have believed you if you had described my life today. When I first met Brian in California, I was nowhere near a path to greater wellness or personal growth.  In fact, I had no interest in starting something new.  Yet there was something so engaging and intriguing about him that I soon found myself dating this guy unlike anyone I’d met before.  It was immediately apparent that Brian is incredibly passionate about his work and that if I was serious about our relationship, it would be important to receive his care.  I was a willing but skeptical client.

Anyone who knew me then would say that it is a miracle that the cynical and bitter girl I was then suspended all disbelief and let herself be led by her heart.  My personal journey with Network Care has been very much about waking up to and trusting my body’s rhythms, wisdom, and intuition, and shedding the armor around my heart.

Not long after meeting in California, Brian and I moved to Seattle together.  While he was working away at starting his first solo practice, I found a job at an exciting company in a downtown office with a gorgeous view of the bay and the city.  It was challenging work but stressful and ultimately unfulfilling.  I was ready to move on but not yet ready to partner with him in business.  The practice was Brian’s thing, and I wanted so very much to find MY thing.  Another crappy job and further growth and awakening with Network Care reminded me of something I used to say when I was younger, “I don’t care what I do for a job as long as I feel it is making a positive difference in the world.”  And then I was flooded with all the fantastic stories Brian shared with me of his Practice Member’s transformations and realized he had been asking me to be a part of the practice all along.

I began working in the front office of Brian’s practice and felt so honored and awed to witness and share in our Practice Member’s blossoming.  And wouldn’t you know it?  Somewhere along the journey I found and fell in love MY thing.

I fell in love with Nia at my first class.  The way the instructor invited me to make the movements my own, make them feel good.  The way she said I could not do it wrong.  It was all so inviting and encouraging.  I found a new way of being in my body, of being in the world.  Now I recognize it as the Nia principle of Dancing through Life.  There are so many aspects of Nia that I love, but my favorite is that all parts of me get to come out and play with Nia.  The parts that are fiery and those that are flowy, quiet and loud, hard and soft.

One of the things I love most about Network Care is the focus on amplifying what works.  Finding a similar approach in the realm of fitness with Nia was like finding the piece of the puzzle that completed the picture.  In 2006, I went to the Nia Headquarters in Portland, OR and received my White Belt training from co-founders of Nia, Debbie Rosas Stewart and Carlos AyaRosas.  I furthered my training with Carlos AyaRosas with the Green Belt in May 2010.  It has been my absolute pleasure to share The Joy of Movement in classes I taught in Seattle and New Hampshire and also with hotel ballrooms full of people at healing retreats around the country.  I invite you to join me for a class and discover Nia for yourself.
