ABOUT THE FILMMAKER

MICHELE OHAYON

I made the film Strip Down, Rise Up in order to inspire healing of all women through movement. I’ve been making films for over 3 decades, with a purpose to enhance the human condition and give a voice to those in the shadows. I am grateful for the courage of the women in my film who let me witness their transformational healing through movement.

I invite you to follow their footsteps.

As a long time dance and yoga practitioner, I welcome you to join this community of diverse women with the common goal to unlocking our bodies and helping each other rise. Make your first step into positive change and join us!

With gratitude,

Michèle Ohayon
