It's never too late to become your true self.
An accident ended my dance career in 2000.
Now I’m a trained bodyworker, ready to help other dancers.
I’m Bàraka – For decades I was a performer and teacher based in the SF Bay Area.
My bodywork mixes movement analysis, massage, acupressure, Tui Na (Chinese massage), integrative stretches, cranial sacral balancing, Ortho-Bionomy®, Reiki and more. Add this to 50 years of training, performance, and teaching, and it’s a winning combination.
Why do dancers need targeted bodywork? Because we expect our bodies to perform at the top of our game every single time - whether we're sore or ill or injured. With five decades of dance experience, I know what you need, how to help you solve problems, and give you a long and healthy dance life!
