My name is Nelson Cuadras and I am exploring movement as a healing modality.
I have seen, first hand, the relief movement provides for my symptoms from Tourettes Syndrome. This movement disorder reminds me that life is in fact, one big disorder. No two days are alike and nothing is perfect. I experience the power of learning to overcome challenges from my movement practice play hand in hand with overcoming mental challenges, most importantly, mental illness. I have fought and continue to fight my own depressions and movement has been the constant variable that has provided me feedback and insight into what ails me. Through this mirror, I have been able to better communicate with my internal dialogue and find solutions to my struggles. I document my struggles here so others can create their own road map of healing.
I have been blessed to have the privilege to explore movement with the support of great teachers and I am here to spread the knowledge they have bestowed upon me. Now, I ask that you help me promote more movement and the destigmatization of the conversation around mental health. Please join me in the conversation and message me through Instagram @nelsonmoves or send me an email: email@example.com
