Leslie Wright

Leslie Wright (ERYT-500) strives to teach her students to develop awareness of the structures of their physical bodies through movement and touch; but she also uses--and encourages her students to learn—the exotic-sounding names of these structures: femur, fascia, fibula . . . She does so because she remembers her own initial fear of these terms; they sounded so alien, so not her. At times she felt as if being in her body was like attending a crowded party of complaining strangers. Leslie discovered, however, that taking the time to learn the names of these complainers was a good first step toward befriending them.
