Sallie Lyons was my movement teacher at the University of Toronto but she was much more than that… She gave me tough love, support, and great advices. She helped me find my breath, my voice, and, often, my courage. Her teaching was central to my journey as an undergraduate student and I am forever grateful for having met her. She retired last spring and I was able to participate in her retirement party from afar, sending┬áher my love and appreciation virtually. Here is to all the professors that have changed my (our)┬álives: Sallie Lyons, Christine Heitzmann, Antje Budde, Lee Maracle, Emily Roxworthy, Frank Wilderson, Patrick Anderson, Ross Frank, and many others in their small and big ways.
