Hi there. My name is Rhiannon - though most people call me Rhia. Some of the boxes I've fit into in the last 12 years have been yoga teacher, mobility specialist, Thai healing arts practitioner, strength coach, and professional dance artist. Titles aside..
My life's work is to help people connect to a deeper part of themselves through movement, to their intrinsic strength and to find more freedom of expression.
Currently, I am mostly teaching one-on-one functional mobility/conditioning and strength sessions online and in Takoma Park, MD. After 10 years of teaching yoga and dancing professionally (and practicing even longer), I had come to personally experience that bodies love variety in movement. We were made to move! And we can be intentional in our movement practice, and stillness practice, to prepare our body/minds for the unknown possibilities that life will throw at us - so we can handle them with grace.
Movement, especially dance, and an interest in the human experience, led me to a BA in sociocultural anthropology. I am forever interested in how culture and community shape how we move our bodies, or don't move, and what the implications are.
The private conditioning/coaching that I do is born out of deep consideration of how we're (in the context of the US) living in our bodies on a day-to-day basis, what movement "nutrition" we could use a little more of depending on what our goals are, and that lessons we learn through movement and self-study can lead us to live more harmoniously in this life. What I integrate draws from functional mobility & strength, yoga, somatic practice, biomechanics, neuroscience & related pain education.
In 1-1 coaching, I help people tackle nagging movement inquiries, goals, or issues with practical resolutions.
I also believe in making practices like yoga, conditioning, functional strength training, accessible to as many as possible -- whether in group or private setting.
I am a mover, and a teacher, but also a listener, a researcher, a person who asks "why?" way too much, overthinks everything, & tries to be less wrong than the day before.. While I am many things, I would say I am a forever student & explorer of how movement, along with a contemplative practice, can heal, build community, & can give us a space to practice our values.
Whether you need support in your movement practice , beginning a meditation practice, or a human to have a conversation with, I look forward to connecting with you.
