I was super excited to attend the first ever wellness expo at the annual SXSW festival here in Austin, Texas. My 7 year old daughter tagged along and we (well, me) were hoping to have a chance to have our auras photographed. unfortunately, all the slots were full but we did get to check out of lots of interesting wellness gear, breathe in flavored oxygen, test out vibration plates, find a new favorite facial mist by biossance, and take a quick yoga class from Yoga with Adriene. I was also entraced by the peace box – a shipping container converted into a traveling guided meditation space. We cannot wait to return next year!

Last week i was so excited to present my paper on "Diastasis Recti - a post partum musculoskeletal concern for return to professional dance". The annual International Association of Dance Medicine and Science conference is just amazing. So many dance medicine professionals from all over the world in one place. Too exciting! Pictured here with my former colleague Emily Sandow, PT, DPT from Harkness Center for Dance Injuries in NYC. It is so important to continue to learn from your peers and i deeply value it even after more than 15 years in the field.
