About me - Adriana Pegorer
I have danced professionally and socially on high heels for almost two decades. After many years of coping with several injuries and seeking the advice of various experts, I have learnt quite a few strategies in how to survive and thrive on those beautiful heights!
The feedback and results from sharing my tactics during dance workshops over the years have prompted me to start Stiletto Detox to focus on all things related to the feet and beyond: our body is interconnected on so many multiple levels!
My approach is influenced by many incredible somatic pioneers, including Mabel Todd, Irene Dowd, Ida Rolf and Emilie Conrad. The approaches of some techniques such as the Feldenkrais Method, Skinner Releasing Technique and Anatomy Trains also inform my work.
Some of those techniques I have studied as part of my BA in Dance & Related Arts at the Chichester University (1998-2001) or have been and still are part of my own professional development.
A critical time for me was studying intensively with Japanese Butoh Master Masaki Iwana (2001-2005). Ongoing professional development include studying with American Somatic Pioneer Liz Koch (2011-current). I am particularly grateful to Glenna Batson for her continuos support in helping me understand the practice of Ideokinesis.
I am a qualified Pilates Matwork Teacher (2007) and Fascial Fitness Trainer (2014).
You can also find me dancing and teaching Contact Improvisation, Tango Argentino and Contact Tango in the UK and abroad. My schedule can be seen here
