I'll be co-facilitating an online workshop with the amazingly brilliant Asher Pandjiris on January 14, 2020 from 7pm-9pm EST.
To be clear this is not a workshop telling you why you should be moving more.
I will share about the historical implications of my gender dysphoria and dysfunctional ass relationship to exercise, the ways I felt pressure to medically transition and modify my body solely through exercise. This lead to me having many injuries. Since I’ve been working to reshape my connection to movement as a tool to drop back into my body not as a weapon to harm it.
