People of all ages and stages come to me to improve their health and fitness through better movement. In my classes, workshops and private lessons the principles of learning are the same. I use many of the original teachings of Moshe Feldenkrais, still unmatched in their genius, to help you discover your patterns of movement and learn improved ways to move. Muscle tension, coordination, balance, flexibility, strength and ease in movement can all be improved with this method. The mind and body are connected, so as your body function improves, so does your mind. You can feel calmer, more relaxed, more flexible in your thinking, too.
You will develop your kinaesthetic sense and become more aware of how you move, feel, think, and act. You will learn to recognise old habits that contribute to the aches and pains and limited movement, and develop the insight to choose different ways of doing things; replacing your old habits. The more you do this, the more these new habits become spontaneous and automatic.
The most enjoyable and satisfying part of my work is seeing my clients delight in their improved self-awareness and discovery that not only can they move and feel and look better, but they have gained the confidence and self-knowledge to manage themselves. The quality of their lives change significantly for the better.
