Individual lessons: London W11
 
Practice:
I work with a wide variety of individual students ranging from professional athletes, musicians and actors to people with chronic pain issues, injuries or those simply wanting to become more in tune with how they move in daily life. I teach regular workshops for the general public and also to Pilates and fitness teachers, physiotherapists, runners, tennis and golf coaches and ski instructors.
 
Biography:
I have been teaching sport, fitness and movement since 1986. As an internationally qualified ski coach, I taught in Europe, New Zealand and the USA. Returning to London I worked as a personal trainer and was one of the first to incorporate Pilates into my training methods. I completed my Feldenkrais training in 2002 and am a full-time practitioner. I am currently doing a Masters in Gestalt Psychotherapy and Counselling at Metanoia Institute, Ealing.
 
My interest in Feldenkrais arose in my early thirties. At the time, despite a comprehensive fitness regime and frequent osteopathic treatments, I was increasingly hampered by niggling injuries. I met Scott Clark and, through our work, I started to experience an ease of moving that was revelatory. More importantly, the lessons highlighted that my driven attitude to my health and indeed my life was not helping me. The impact of this new awareness was such that I embarked on a Feldenkrais training as soon as I could.
