Janine completed her four year training in The Feldenkrais Method in 2010, having studied under the direction of Garet Newell, a student of Dr Moshe Feldenkrais. After finishing her undergraduate studies in Behavioural Science, Janine worked as a dancer, teacher and choreographer in Yorkshire, London and the Southern Counties. Whilst studying for a Masters degree in dance and somatic studies at the University of Surrey in Guildford, Janine first encountered The Feldenkrais Method through lessons delivered by Scott Clark. Having suffered from chronic back and sciatic nerve pain for several years following a series of dance-related injuries, and pursuing countless medical and alternative treatments to address the problems, it was in The Feldenkrais Method that Janine not only found long-term pain relief but improved functioning and flexibility, discovering a renewed fascination in movement. As a result of this, she decided to complete her professional practitioner training in order to give others access to all that The Feldenkrais Method has to offer.
