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 on applying the lessons from yoga and other bodmind studies to my writing, teaching at The Lauterstein-Conway Massage Schhol, and private practice in Austin, Tx. I see bodywork as applied yoga.
