Workshops: Monthly Saturdays afternoon, Brixton London
Individual lessons: I offer travelling Feldenkrais by arrangement in London.
 
Practice:
I teach a regular public Feldenkrais schedule, including workshops and individual sessions. I hugely enjoy building a lively practice that includes people of all abilities, access needs, ages and backgrounds.
 
People who attend my public workshops range from students, to young professionals and Monday-Friday workers, to senior citizens, all interested in finding better ways to move.
 
In my individual sessions I work with a similar diverse mix. With an extensive background of working with children and adults on the autistic spectrum and with complex disabilities, my focus is working with children, teenagers and young adults, and I'm extremely keen in Feldenkrais for these specific groups. I have worked with wheelchair dancers and artists with access requirements.
 
Everyone I work with in my practice benefits from the positive impact Feldenkrais can have on emotional and physical wellbeing.
 
Advanced Training: Unfolding Antatomy course. A theoretical & experiential orientation to anatomy & the main body systems (2019). Feldenkrais for Special Needs Children. Taught by Feldenkrais Trainer Arlyn Zones (2018).
