„An intensive work with my own body in dance and daily yoga practice made me interested in the field of body works and movement therapies. My dance profession brought me many injuries and situations when I needed to see a doctor. Rolfing has changed my life. Rolfing helped me to re-discover a healthy body again. It allowed my body to heal, it eliminated my chronic pains caused by unilateral strain and markedly developed my physical, psychological and emotional capacity. This unique experience lead me to Rolfing studies.”
