what is mov/ed?

mov/ed is yoga + movement for your healing journeys, big and small
trauma-sensitive yoga
Trauma-sensitive yoga is a movement practice designed as a resource for healing from trauma. For folks currently working with a counselor or therapist on their trauma recovery, I offer TSY practices on the Moved to Heal podcast and locally in Middlebury, Vermont.
open-to-all yoga
My "regular" yoga classes borrow some of TSY's emphasis on choice and awareness of experience. I strive to create a supportive community environment where individual choices and variation are celebrated. My students tend to be busy people who appreciate the space to do as they need and tell me they feel "so much better" and "so relaxed" after a class. 
I love podcasts, so of course I decided to share my teaching there! I post weekly practices on Esther's Everyday Meditation and Moved to Heal, which includes both trauma-sensitive and "regular" yoga practices. 

why do students love mov/ed?

  • Esther helped me restore my confidence in making good decisions for myself and my body.

    I feel like I got my mojo back :)

    Valentina, Love Your Moves student

  • Esther showed me that yoga is for everyone, that there is no 'keeping up with others,' that my practice was my own and I could individualize it according to my abilities in a given day / stage / moment. That self-acceptance was very freeing and I am forever grateful to Esther for that.
    Melanie, custom sessions
  • Esther holds space for students to experience the energy and journey of their own practice. She balances a true respect for the heritage of yoga with a playful and encouraging teaching style that always leaves me ready for my next class.
    Ann, student since 2014
