Testimonials from my clients and students:
My session with Lise was like nothing else I’ve experienced. She facilitated an exploration of inquiring within myself through movement that was so gentle and yet so powerful. I was able to feel into places in my body and being that were painful (either physically, or emotionally, or both) and ALLOW them to shift under my own gentle attention and care. It was more of an un-doing than a doing. If you’ve done a lot of talking about your stuff, and things aren’t shifting in the way you’d like, I highly recommend trying this movement-healing modality. Our bodies are so wise, and Lise helps you tap into that innate wisdom. This work helped me feel more grounded & integrated, with a deeper trust in myself and my body.

The Finding Your Voice circle was one of the most powerful experiences I’ve had in a very very long time. Lise and Kim together are golden. I also really appreciated Lise’s constant reminder to slow down, this was so helpful. Slowing down and letting the words come rather than ‘crafting’ them.
I thought I was listening and connected, but I found a much deeper relationship through this process. It confirmed that my voice is still with me, no matter how I may silence her or the world may try to silence her. She speaks from a different place than I have noticed before. A place that is deeper, a place of wisdom, a place of love. She holds me in a way I have not known until now.

When I first registered for a movement workshop with Lise, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I felt open and curious, and also nervous. I had never before tried anything similar to what Lise offers. I struggle with social anxiety, so registering for something like that was outside of my comfort zone.
I was blown away. Lise is such a gentle and welcoming guide, which helped put me at ease in the face of my nerves. And then there was the movement itself, which helped me hear what my body wanted in new ways. I was able to get out of my head a bit, which I often struggle to do. It was a soft, loving way to connect with myself that I didn’t know I needed. I highly, highly recommend giving yourself the gift of a movement workshop with Lise.

Lise, thank you so much for this beautiful offering. I had no idea what to expect going in, but this was such a fantastic experience, and I’m so appreciative of the wisdom you’ve shared with us and how you’ve helped open up a conversation for me with my body.

Working with Lise is transformative! With gentle suggestion and masterful direction, Lise guides the participant to move through their body in a new way. In our session, she helped me connect with my body and tap into the message it’s been holding for me. We started the session with the intention of me releasing ‘self-doubt’ and exploring what feelings came up when I set the intention. We moved emotions through my body in a way I’ve never explored before; using colors and shapes, moving the sensation of my feelings from my chest to my throat, loosening the areas of tightness through gentle movement, from sitting to standing, moving my limbs as needed, letting my body guide the flow. Lise held the container as I let the feelings move through me, releasing tension, and allowing them to show up however they needed. When she asked what my body had to say to me, I heard it whisper, “I am here.” I finished the session feeling more tapped into myself, my body feeling calmer, and feeling closer to my body in general. Thank you Lise for a great session!
