Practice:
I have a busy practice, seeing a wide variety of people, including people with sports injuries, musicians & dancers, and ordinary people dealing with the ordinary tensions of life, looking for a way of living more fully.
 
Biography:
Halfway through a mathematics degree, I started studying dance – a little late! Trying to make up for lost time, I looked at any way possible to speed up my ability to learn movement: I studied Labanotation and Laban Theory in general, Alexander, Sweigard, I got Rolfed, and then finally found Feldenkrais. And that discovery was a life-changer. At first, I used Feldenkrais as a way of keeping myself in working order whilst pursuing a carreer as a dancer, then to help others learn more easily when I taught dance; now I am a full-time Feldenkrais teacher.
 
Although I am originally from New Mexico, I performed and taught in Seattle, California and New York City before moving to London in 1984. Here, I have taught in most of the major dance training colleges and schools, and was a founding member of the Siobhan Davies Dance Company. In 1997 I began devoting my efforts entirely to Feldenkrais. I teach a wide variety of people in a wide variety of situations – my oldest client is ninety-two, my youngest, one. I also work as a Trainer on Feldenkrais training programmes and regularly teach advanced seminars for other Feldenkrais practitioners; my current project is organising my second professional Feldenkrais training programme, that started in London in August 2016.
