Four Easy (and short) Lessons

A few lessons for you to enjoy

Easy for babies, easy for adults - the Feldenkrais Method® of Somatic Education: re-programming the nervous system through organic learning processes.

Four easy lessons give you a sense of the possibilities for you for finding ease and comfort, for discovering new approaches that you can apply to your daily live.

Ease in the Jaw. This short lesson (about 5 minutes) that you can do in sitting gives you a hint about the many ways that the functioning of the jaw is so intimately connected with movements of the head. At the end of this short lesson, you may find your jaw more relaxed. You may even find your neck easier. Check out how your breathing has changed, as well ...
48 minutes of Bliss with the Breath. A great stress-buster! While you are relaxing, yo also learn more about the process of breathing, and how you can take the exercise into your daily life.
Side Freedom in 19 minutes. Take a break after too long on the computer. Find a way to open those areas that became stiff and unmoving.
The Frog Lesson. Use your legs to ease your back. At the end, in walking, you find new balance, ease in the hips and low back. You will feel taller. You may find that some yoga poses are easier.


Testimonials

MJ wrote, "Rob, I just did the bliss breath lesson and I can't thank you enough. I had tweaked my SI overburdening it gardening last week. Having done your lesson, this is the best I have felt since and it truly has me better organized to be able to heal. My chest feels completely different in standing and I'm moving MUCH easier. Sending SO much gratitude and love, xo"

ER wrote, "I just did the Short & Challenging lesson. Loved it. I appreciated your cues. The questions of where I could bring my attention and whatI I might be interested in were great. I certainly felt more open on the left as I lay on the ground, it was easier to breathe on that side. Once standing, it was easier to find my balance, to ground on the right foot versus the left While walking, my left arm is freer, my right arm is heavy and doesn’t swing as well. I’m going to do it on the left now. :-)"

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.
