As an artist, I am essentially interested in using my body as an outlet for experimentation. Particularly, I seek to explore ways in which I can vary the initiation and timing of my movement through an enhanced awareness of muscle patterning. Having done research on the mind-body connection, I am learning to be more mindful of the impact my internal emotional state has on my body and vice versa. Studying the psychological and physiological components of the human body has helped me discover the most effective ways for me to explore in my personal kinesphere. I aim to use my anatomical knowledge to create somatic practices that are safe and useful for all bodies. I will continue to deepen my movement exploration as I enrich my anatomical understandings in physical therapy school.
