Spring into Action
Finding Ease and comfort in shoulders, back, hips and breathing
The Feldenkrais Method proposes a different perspective, one in which all parts can be connected. Not only "can be" but actually are. And the private and group classes bring us to realizations, sometimes at very deep levels, of experiencing this.
Step by step, starting from very simple movements, each class brings you gently to new realizations on your path to freedom of your shoulders and hips.
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.
This course integrates your development over the two or three courses:
- listening to the breath (am I exerting too much?)
- rolling (how can the large & heavy parts move with ease?)
- twisting (how can I turn one part, leaving the other parts relaxed?)
- hip Ease (how can the legs move freely in the hip joints?)
- distributing the work (are small muscles being asked to do the work of large muscles?)

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.
