Morning Wakeup

Easy Lessons to Help You WakeUp!

I have changed the format in a new and special way that may be of particular interest to you.

A little background. For the past year or so, I have found I am a little slow in the mornings, sometimes a little "creaky" and stiff. May of my students have shared that this has been a concern for them, as well. I do a variety of things to regain the fluidity of moving and I have shared with students I see in person. Most I do lying in my bed, some I do sitting on the side of the bed, and others I do in standing. I had a brainwave: why not share these activities?
The Plan for your Ease. Each class will begin on the floor (or on your bed, your choice). In each class recording we will do two short lessons/activities (about 5 minutes each). Each of these are designed to wake up a part of ourselves in a gentle, yet effective way. I'm confident that these will be memorable so you can do them in the days that follow.
Then we will do a medium-length lesson. Each of the medium-length lessons will bring more whole-body ease. This, too, will be simple and easy, so you can do it on your own.
Finally we will do a bit that combines and integrates the three.
In this way, you can join for for the first 5 minutes for one lesson, or for 10+ minutes, to enjoy the two, or even continue for the full hour.
Over the 5 classes, we will build up a repertoire of 10 short lessons, and 5 medium-length lessons.
You will be able to access each of these lessons separately! That means that you can go to the site and do only the short lessons, if you so wish, or the longer -- all at your own pace and time.

About Feldenkrais® Awareness Through Movement™

Feldenkrais classes keep pace with how you are feeling. Step by step, starting from very simple movements, each class brings you gently to new realizations on your path to freedom, whether it be in joints, or your thinking, or your emotions.

There are lessons for those who are just beginning in the Feldenkrais Method™, as well as lessons to satisfy the curiosity of those with significant experience.

In addition to audio and video recordings of the lessons, some will have additional ideas that help you take the lesson into your daily life, whether it is in your bed, or your chair at your computer, walking, or even in sports.

Live classes are recorded which reflect the needs and abilities of those in the classes. Each week the recorded class is added to this series -- so come back again & again to do the next lesson.

My first love was maths and sciences, leading to systems analysis – human and also computer systems. This led to a Masters in Educational Measurement, followed soon after with training in biofeedback at the California Pain Control Centre in Long Beach, California.

These studies opened a thirst for broader study, from massage, Reiki, energy systems, yoga and Tai Chi. I was always deeply drawn to the practice of mind-body integration and found that training in the Feldenkrais Method® gave me the best grounding in this way of being in the world. I graduated from my four-year Feldenkrais training program in 1991 and have maintained a private practice since.

I love working collaboratively and have volunteered for many years. I enjoyed being President of the Feldenkrais Guild of North America and have also had the opportunity to contribute to the International Feldenkrais Federation (IFF).

My interest in all things digital have intertwined with my Feldenkrais interests. I was an early adopter and advocate of online teaching (even before the Covid-19 2020/21 pandemic. This has been an important combination of skills as co-organizer of the Kelowna Feldenkrais Teacher Training that began online in 2021.
