April - Effortless Gardening

Find Ease and comfort while Gardening

After gardening, do you feel sore and tired? Stooped and tuckered-out? in these 4 classes you will learn how to position yourself and move more comfortably. The series is progressive: the first class will be easy positions and each class will build so that, by the 4th class, you will be in more difficult positions -- yet discovering comfort. Learn some principles you can use in your daily life, whether gardening or not.

The LIVE / ZOOM version of this class will be Tuesdays at 7pm, Mountain Daylight Time (6pm, Pacific, 3pm in Hawaii, 9 pm in Eastern Daylight Time)

Recordings (audio & video) will be available, usually within 2 hours.

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.

Not just for gardeners, these audio and video recordings will have applications in your daily life, whether it is in your bed, or your chair at your computer, walking, or even in sports.

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.
