2. Currently teaching: MOVE [groove]

3. Sign: Sun in Pisces  

Moon in Leo

Rising in Aries (but feels more like a Gemini tbh)

4. What informs your practice? The nervous system fascinates me and influences how I practice daily. Other things include; somatic awareness, the sense organs, the physiological systems of the body and how they express through movement. My experience of navigating the world as a neurodivergent human informs my practice as well. Looking at the world through an anti-oppressive and trauma-informed lens deeply informs my practice. Always asking questions and staying curious.

5. Current sounds you're practicing to: A playlist my partner made called “Black & Queer since Time”. The artists I have on repeat include: Billie Holiday, Labi Siffre, and Tracy Chapman. Lately I have also been listening to a ton of experimental ambient. My fav album right now is called Nothing Is Objective by Suso Saiz. I also love dark and hard techno music 😈

6. Currently taking inspiration from: I’m inspired by resiliency, decolonization, anti-capitalism, smashing the patriarchy and being kinky/sex/body positive. I’m also really into neuroscience and love nerding out about the brain 🧠🤓

Renelyn Quinicot

1. Pronouns: She/her

2. Currently teaching: MOVE [kundalini + pilates]

3. Sign: Capricorn! & super earthy with tons of Virgo and a dash of water signs like Pisces and Scorpio.

4. What informs your practice? I am a big believer in the body as a storyteller, keeper of memory and as an extension of our lineage. I am curious about movement as a practice of loving self-study, and the breath as a site of inquiry. 
I am inspired by P L A Y as an act of resistance.

+ + + 
Exploring more ways my practice can be a homebase to allow all emotions to compassionately co-exist, rather than be a break / tucking under the rug of all the things i don't want to feel, is informing my practice especially through these times.


5. Current sounds you're practicing to: "Guara" by Ar-tu feels like a portal to a place I always want to start my practice in. I love disco, funk, old soul music, 90s chillllll rap, psychedelic rock, and eerie folk music. I like to practice to Kundalini mantra music and spacey ambient sounds like 'Future Waves' by Uther Modes to feel like I am floating or teleporting as I breathe... : )

6. Currently taking inspiration from: The trees, the waters...wee ones (kiddos) as my greatest teachers. d r e a m s, and psychedelics. 💫

7. A good space in 3 words: Safe(er), diverse, silly
