Edie has worked in Arts Administration throughout her career; she has been honored to work for organizations such as Lincoln Center Institute for the Arts in Education, Brooklyn Museum of Art and the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego. Edie transplanted from NYC to California in August of 2003. A primary consideration in moving from the East Coast to the West Coast was in response to her realization that part of managing the pain associated with hip displaysia was to change the environment where she lived, a more moderate climate helped tremendously. Edie discovered Yoga and Nia, a mind body spirit movement technique, that summer and has been practicing the joy of movement ever since.

Edie believes that Yoga and Nia alike are lifelong practices which allows one to continue to expand their mind, body, spirit connection. It allows one to meet oneself where they are and move from that point, assessing their bodies’ needs as they pay attention to how they feel and playing within the levels and intensity of the movement form.
 
Yoga and Nia for Edie have given her the opportunity to come to know her body more fully.
She eventually had both hips replaced and continued her Yoga and Nia practiced to integrate her new hips into her body and learn to trust them. During Edie’s first hip replacement her deep peroneal nerve was damaged and a portion of her left leg from the calf down was paralyzed which greatly impacted her ability to move her foot. Continuing her Yoga and Nia practice, Edie was resolved to challenge her left leg, ensuring that the muscles were activated and would not atrophy, with the intent to continue nerve regeneration while being mindful to practice in a safe mindful manner. She is a firm believer in the idea of move it or lose it. And more importantly, believes in honoring ones bodies way of moving, and letting challenges inspire you to connect more fully with the body, mind and spirit.
