Get comfortable taking up space-
without feeling like you’re performing.
••an online group experience••
Here’s what I want for you...
Let go of how you're supposed to look, how you're supposed to move.
Belong to yourself and know deep down that you matter.
Know there are others who appreciate you in all your messiness.
Let out your wildness
From an early age we've been told how to move--what's acceptable and expected. Right from the earliest years, we've been encouraged to quiet our impulses for the sake of others; when to go to the bathroom, when to eat, sitting still for hours on end and then we were were finally allowed to get wild, someone was always there to tell us HOW to get wild the RIGHT WAY. We have been conditioned to act with more consideration of others than for what is right within our own knowing.
F*^& that! Our bodies are wise, and it's time to connect with our instincts and impulses.
Repair the gaze
(Un)Becoming Practice is the antidote to shame, self doubt and appeasement.
There are so many ways that we aren't supposed to act, look or behave. It can be really scary to show a different side of yourself--one that might not look so good.
(Un)Becoming Practice can help you. This group online movement experience is designed to grow your comfort with taking up space, give you full autonomy in your movement, full confidence in your expression and the shift the culture around the way we support each other with regard.
Our body is the physical manifestation of our soul
and movement is the expression of that.
Here's how we (Un)become:
(Un)Becoming Club is a shorter format based on the same principles and framework. There are minimal check ins with these sessions, just our bodies, showing up exactly the way we are.
Sessions are 30 minutes long.
I open up the Zoom meeting a few minutes early each day, to give you some set-up time.
We will always start with a short warm-up followed by a short prompt, that I share both verbally & in the chat box (for anyone arriving late).
Camera use is optional. Some days you might want to be seen and others you won't - experiment with it.
We move in silence and to music (or poetry)
I move along with you.
The invitation is to just show up & be. Show up however you are ...in your pajamas, bathed/unbathed, messy hair, cranky, sad, worn out... energetic, lethargic... all of you is welcome.
Sessions will NOT be recorded so that you can feel free to to experiment
This is an online space for us to show up differently TOGETHER, in community ...and making a habit of it.
You can register anytime throughout the month
Once you’ve registered, you will have access to ALL remaining sessions each month.
This is not a subscription that will automatically renew, it is good for one month at a time.
Monthly membership is based on the calendar month and allows you to drop in to any session that month.
Sessions may be added with demand.

(Un)Becoming Practice is designed to facilitate the emergence of what you have inside waiting to be expressed. This is a slow and spacious place for you to connect with others who are also (Un)Becoming.
Sessions are 90 min long and meet weekly or bi-weekly for a fixed time period.
I lead a warm-up that focuses on stimulating your senses and feeling present and embodied.
We spend time getting comfortable being on camera, getting comfortable with movement with time to chat about what is coming up.
We practice listening to our internal impulse.
We move and not move as we please.
Time and space is given to connect with each other about our experience.
Our group is intentionally small to uphold a sense of intimacy and ease.
These sessions are not recorded so you can feel free to experiment and show up exactly how you need to without worry that you’ll be captured out of context.
Registration includes 6-8 sessions.
Before the first session you’ll receive a guide so you can prepare your space and your body for the experience.
The live exchange is essential to the practice and would not translate to a recording. If you can’t make the sessions but would like to join the next round, sign up for the waitlist here.
The next cohort starts in April 2023

My name is Amy (she/her)
My journey to self love was not through mastery or control, it was by learning how to partner with my flaws and imperfections. When I learned how to stop fixing myself that's when things really turned around for me.
I believe this work is exactly what we need at this time--especially those of us who mask parts of ourselves for others.
