What is Feldenkrais?

The Feldenkrais Method® is a unique approach to learning how we can move with greater ease and more efficiency.
By improving our movement, posture and breathing, we can develop self-awareness and regain our capacity for strength, flexibility and coordination.

It can be taught in groups or one to one
In a typical group class I give instructions and you as the student will given the time and the space to explore the movements. The class consists of comfortable, easy movements that gradually evolve into movements of greater range and complexity. You may find new ways of moving and feel that during the lesson your way of moving becomes much easier and smoother. Often students say they feel more grounded, relaxed as well as lighter.

The Feldenkrais Method is for all ages, abilities and levels: for people in sports and office workers, for dancers, singers and actors, for ordinary people in health or illness who want to improve their movement.

Experience

Feldenkrais Practitioner/Teacher

I am certified as a Feldenkrais Practitoner and Teacher in Amsterdam in 2008 and a registered member of the Feldenkrais Guild UK.
My background is in dance and choreography, where I have a wide range of experience in different approaches, both traditional and contemporary. I was always interested in finding out more about this tantalizing subject of movement and was very keen to find my own way of moving and dancing. When I came across the Feldenkrais Method, I was fascinated by the way the method invited me to learn new movements and at the same time made me aware of my thinking process. The relationship between moving and thinking is crucial and elusive at the same time. A few years ago I started working with children and adults with disabilities. These experiences were, and are, very rewarding on many different levels. Every person is unique and brings a very personal story from which I can learn and transform — a wonderful and rewarding process.

Since early 2009 I practice privately at the Feelgood Centre in the city of London and teach group lessons and workshops in various places in the UK and abroad.

I also teach Feldenkrais into dance and improvisation at Siobhan Davis Studios, The Laban Centre in London and at Coventry University.

Part of my teaching happens also with Breathing Space Children’s Programme of Dance Art Foundation. For them I go to hospitals and hospices for children and teach movement lessons.

Since 2005 I am a member of Entelechy Arts, a charity which runs arts projects for young people and adults with learning difficulties.
