She toured for ten years with dance and theatre companies doing in-school performances; worked as a pre-school teacher; served as a yoga center administrator; and has choreographed and taught using Richard Bull’s Structured Improvisation techniques. Esther has practiced Iyengar Yoga since 1980. Her focus is on finding intersections between these various fields, with Movement Studies as the thread through.
