I have devoted much of my life to the style of movement learning created by Moshe Feldenkrais in the mid 20th century. He developed an educational system that uses movement as a vehicle for learning optimal use of self.
This somatic educational system expands movement repertoire, refines use of self, reduces pain or limitations and clarifies body image. I have been fortunate to participate in the dissemination of this somatic system globally and specialize in the umbrella of Movement Intelligence programs created by Ruthy Alon.
What intrigued me most about embarking on a Feldenkrais® training was the spontaneous improvement I experienced in my movement and greater sense of well-being.
Learning about the engineering of the skeleton within, how it was designed to move, feeling my thoughts and sensibility change, I began to realize that movement stimulated my brain.
Movement is a vehicle for not only improving itself but also for stirring the more subjective arenas of feeling, sensing and thinking. Giving them inhabitable space to exist and permission to inform is a wonderful bonus.
