Kerri KresinskiKerri Kresinski – Movement has been my life’s calling, and there is nothing else I have been so passionate about.  I started my dance lessons when I was 3 years old and over the next 25 years studied theater, acting, music, circus acrobatics and aerial arts.  My professional career as a multi-disciplinary performer brought me to shows and festivals all over the world.   I express my passion for life through movement and feel that the body is the gateway to the higher powers for healing, transformation and expression.

Technique and physical strength didn’t come naturally to me, but I have always found joy in figuring it out.   This in conjunction with my insatiable appetite for understanding the body has helped me develop techniques using active flexibility, strength, and physics to work with physical movement and goals.  As a teacher,  I love to work with all body types and help figure out the best route for each individual, celebrating successes big and small.   I have learned that anything is possible with patience, discipline, self-awareness, and a positive attitude.

It is my life’s purpose to support myself and others to find joy in our lives and make choices that serve us physically, emotionally, mentally, and energetically, to reduce stress and allow space to wake up all that is possible in this life.  When we climb into our bodies with curiosity and joy, we cultivate self awareness that can open us up to creating a life that is better than we could have ever imagined.  This is our life.  Let’s live it BIG!

“Kerri Kresinski creates a welcoming, encouraging environment just by being herself, and in turn I was able to let myself be more free, more silly, more open, more EVERYTHING.  Just MORE.  It was an awesome learning experience, and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to attend.”   Angela Jackson – Halifax, NS.  2017
