Improve the way you move and notice changes in other areas of your life.
The Feldenkrais Method is all about having really good movement. Learning how to improve how you move using your abilities. Feldenkrais invites you to draw your awareness to the way you already move, asking questions of your natural intelligence to play and discover new ways of moving, using less effort and tension.
The Method has many benefits. It can have a positive impact on physical and emotional wellbeing. People notice positive changes to their posture, balance and coordination, and breathing. Some use Feldenkrais to support recovery from aches and pains, others to improve their performance in sports. Feldenkrais attracts people from varied backgrounds, from children to older people.
I am a qualified Feldenkrais Practitioner and a member of the Feldenkrais Guild UK (FGUK), subscribing to their code of ethics and have full insurance. I have a DBS check (2017). I hugely enjoy building a lively practice that includes people of all abilities, ages and backgrounds. From regular public workshops, to art companies, to teaching senior citizens more ways to move more easily.
My individual sessions have a similar diverse mix. From dancers who use wheelchairs, to students and older people, and Monday to Friday workers with everyday requests for better movement.
With extensive background of working with children and young people on the autistic spectrum, and with complex disabilities in educational settings and in charity sectors, I am extremely keen in Feldenkrais for these young people. I very much welcome children in my practice and enjoy working with them.
Alongside being a member of FGUK, I am an active member of the Feldenkrais Guild UK board, currently the board’s International Representative and Co-Manager for social media initiatives.
