I have been building my practice in Yorkshire since relocating from London in 2005, working with a wide variety of people including dancers, children with disabilities and adults with neurological conditions & people recovering from surgery. The majority of people I see are simply looking to improve their comfort in day to day life.
I initially trained in dance & worked as a dance artist, performing and teaching in a variety of educational and community settings over many years. In 1996 I became lecturer in Dance at the University of Derby where I taught on the undergraduate programme for six years. In 1997 I cofounded Wild Ducks with Mieke Chill, an organisation which provided movement and dance opportunities for young people with profound and multiple learning disabilities.
Following my initial training in contemporary dance, I came across alternative approaches to working with movement and the body which really intrigued me and felt very satisfying; firstly the Alexander Technique and then Feldenkrais. It was after a series of individual Feldenkrais lessons, having done Awareness Through Movement (group classes) for a few years, that I became truly hooked and decided to do the professional training.
I completed the Amsterdam International Feldenkrais Training (AIFT) in October 2002. I now have a thriving practice in Hebden Bridge where I teach regular classes and workshops and give individual sessions. I also teach Feldenkrais at Northern School for Contemporary Dance and in London for Independent Dance on their MA programme.
