Amal Rogers grew up in south Florida and earned degrees from the New College of Florida and Mills College in Oakland, California. While in school Amal researched dance and art as means for community building. In this process she studied diverse movement practices and their liberatory applications. She certified as a practitioner of Thai Bodywork and Trigger Point Therapy in Chicago, Illinois. In Minneapolis, Amal makes performance, teaches dance in public schools, works as part time rehearsal director with the Somali Museum Dance Troupe, and is proud to now be offering bodywork with the People’s Movement Center. On the internet she edits work for the publication Art For Ourselves. Amal had her first baby around the new year and is feeling even more sure of the potential for touch and movement to radically transform and to heal. She works to provide client-centered care that is responsive to cultural, political, and physical realities.
Amal is offering 30, 60, and 90 minute bodywork sessions that can be customized to meet the needs of each individual. Thai bodywork with Trigger Point Therapy consists of compression and both active and passive movement to retrain the body to move through everyday life with ease. Sessions can be focused on relaxation, pain relief, somatic education, restorative movement or exercise, or whatever you need! Sessions take place fully clothed on a mat on the floor.
