I was born in Chile in 1972 and have lived in the UK for the past 13 years. I am currently based in North Oxford, where I live with my two daughters and am always developing my work as an independent solo artist, teacher of Dance Movement and Body Work Therapist.

My original training was in the field of dance. I hold a degree in dance and I have performed in New York, Houston, Italy, Chile and Japan. Some of the most important influences in my work were the studies I undertook, and the several residences I did inĀ the countryside of Japan at the Body Weather Farm- led by well-known dance maker Min Tanaka. After more than 20 years of dance and search for new languages of expression and training for the condition of the body, I developed my own approach of dance to which I had given the title Human Landscape.

The understanding that developed from my career as a dancer led to a growing interest in applying my knowledge as a form of physical and spiritual therapy. I am now trained as a body therapist and qualified as a Thai Yoga Massage practitioner. I have practised professionally with a number of private patients and I am rapidly building a client base around Oxford.

I offer weekly Dance Movement classes for dancers and non-dancers working with groups of experienced and non- experienced movers, adults and children.

I offer my work as a massage therapist on one to one basis at two beautiful spaces in Oxford one in the Centre of Town and North Oxford as well as private visits.
