I have been practicing and teaching primarily bodywork since 1977 - particularly Zero Balancing and Deep Massage: Lauterstein Method since 1986. I am the author of "Putting the Soul Back in the Body", "The Deep Massage Book," "Life in the Bones", and CD, "Roots and Branches". I co-direct The Lauterstein-Conway Massage School and Clinic in Austin (since 1989).
I began doing yoga in the 1960's and have continued sporadically since as well as in the meantime earning a 2nd degree black belt in Kung Fu. In 2014 I began attending classes primarily at Dharma Yoga in Austin and fell in love with yoga again. In 2017 I completed their 200-hour teacher training. In 2019 I completed the Meditation Teacher Training at Sukha Yoga in Austin.
My primary focus, through yoga practice and philosophy, is to apply the lessons from yoga and other bodymind studies to my life, writing, teaching and private practice. I teach at my school in Austin, in England, Costa Rica, etc. and private practice at Creekside Whole Health Center. I see bodywork as applied yoga.
