Evolve and Increase Your Ease and Power
Enhance your movement in each stage of evolution (14 lessons)
Learn to move with greater ease with each class in this progressive series of lessons. Starting with the basic building blocks of movement, you will learn new ways of moving that are more efficient, easier and produce less pain.
Movement implies purpose; within the evolutionary framework, purpose is survival. Each lesson helps you adapt yourself to be more efficient, more fluid, more intentional. The lessons are fun and also deeply rewarding.
Evolutionary steps -- what does this mean?
Scientist have found that different animals came into existence at different times, and that the simpler organisms appeared earlier and more complex organisms seem to appear later. Thus it could be said that, over time, new animals have emerged that are more complex, meeting environmental demands with new strategies. This is not to say that the older strategies were not efficient -- they are, for many of the "earliest" animals can be found living their lives today.
Exploring Evolutionary Steps - What this means to us
Each phase of the evolutionary sequence has benefits for us to experience. By resting in the phase and exploring how that organism interacts with its environment, we learn about ourselves.
Through Organic Self-Learning, We Learn New Ways to Adapt
Each lesson is an exploration of a single phase, and through the organic self-learning, we have the opportunity to shed the tight muscles, the rigidness, the tension and anxiety that can be part of modern living, leaving us with a sense of ease and well being.
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.
