Freedom Through Movement
Mona Clifford Baker performed professionally with both the Harkness Ballet Company and the American Ballet Theatre of New York City prior to an injury that ended her professional dance career. Searching for both the cause and solution for her foot injury, she turned to the field of movement: studying several systems of movement as behavior, she became became a Certified Movement Analyst and a Certified teacher of Labanotion. Realizing a greater potential existed within the movement systems she had studied and subsequently taught, she pursued further research and went on to develop the patented method Actionomics.
Mona has been an Actionomics Movement practitioner as well as Registered Somatic Movement Educator and Therapist for many years offering her expertise to dancers, athletes, and everyday movers. Her approach for each individual is customized and focused on finding both the underlying cause and the best solution. Her hope for all clients is that they leave their sessions with a new awareness and embodiment of Actionomics, a somatic understanding that allows them to optimize their movement potential.
