  • Description

    I am a successful massage and myofascial release therapist in private practice for 21 years. I have been also teaching yoga for 16 years. Prior to that I worked as a dance therapist for mentally ill adults. I am an energetic and alive 64 year old who after hosting workaways for 6 + years with my husband, have decided it is our turn. My husband is a social worker/family life consultant and works sometimes for US military around the world, though is mostly retired.
    We have many skills, from gardening to cooking, from sewing to tending horses, dogs, and cats and children. I am a great vegetarian/vegan cook, yoga teacher, massage therapist and aromatherapy student. Dan is great at cooking meat and fixing things and listening! As a successful business owner, I have other skills as well such as people skills, computer skills and can clean a bathroom! I am eager to live in a region long enough to get to know a bit about it, it's people and to develop new friends. I am organized and efficient and though I am vegetarian, leaning towards veganism, and gluten free in America, I am willing and able to cook almost anything, and am a very good baker. I try to be as flexible as my conscience allows, I love to help people and love to help them find new ways of being in their bodies, cooking, eating and staying flexible! Dan loves to BBQ meat and veggies and is a varied handyman, painter, furniture refinisher and a great listener!
    My language skills are beginning French and rusty but medium level Spanish. I would also love to help you with your English. Dan speaks some German and English of course.
    We would be happy to learn from you as well and see where that takes us all!

  • What else ...

    Dans has some health issues which make being on his feet for long stretches (ie, more than 2 hours at a time), difficult. We love to bike and walk and we are super independent and self starters. We love getting to know people and love the exchange that workaway is. We have made lifelong friends as hosts in California and we are always eager to try to help others at their homes!
