An introduction to Yourself
Discovering ease and comfort with the Feldenkrais Method® (11 lessons)
These ten lessons are fresh, exciting and easy to follow for the beginner to the Feldenkrais Method. After each lesson people felt refreshed, relaxed, pains may have melted away. Some discovered that the class was also a bit of an introduction to mindfulness.
Each lesson has a brief description, giving you a bit of context about the lesson. At the end of each lesson, you will find additional text to help you reflect on how you have changed.
Included in the course is a 12-page booklet to accompany your lessons, to allow you space to write or draw, as the spirit moves you.
The ten lessons in this course represent two series: The first 6 were explicitly for those new to the Feldenkrais Method and who were curious about the possibilities for themselves. The next four were part of a series I did with new staff who were in training for the summer. Prior to the first recorded lesson, the students had experienced a number of basic lessons. These four lesson took them a bit further in their self-exploration.
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.
