Seven Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement™ lessons
Enjoy this weekly course for reducing stress and discomfort, reducing pain, and increasing flexibility.
The live course is taught Tuesday evenings, recorded and then uploaded for your listening pleasure.
This series not only has delightful movement sequences, it also has short lectures on the nervous system, perception, and learning, all with practical aspects to help you understand how you can learn how to learn.
Part-way through a lesson, Dr Feldenkrais said,
Now, we will see, as always, if something can be better. Then, there isn't any limit to the extent to which it can improve.
It is only static things that are permanent.
With a quality like intelligence, or where intelligence is involved, there isn't any limit. The person can do it so it improves. Then, literally throughout life, he, or she, will never find "a best way," that cannot be improved upon. Then, when he, or she, stops improving, it is a sign that it has become a routine and he no longer sees or is aware of what he is doing. He is acting mechanically and that is why it is not improving; otherwise, there isn't any limit to development. As a person does better, the ability to feel becomes greater and the clarity, depth, and breadth of thought is increased. The complexity is also increased, so that he, or she, can always do better, much better.
We will do another two or three steps where the difference will be greater than it has been up to now. You will see, that if you go home and think about it, you will find another ten steps by yourself.
And so you, too, will see that, throughout each lesson, you will discover improvement.
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.
