I work with a range of people from all walks of life and of all ages. Most however are adults; older people with a range of complaints, people with conditions such as fibromyalgia, RSI and many yoga, Pilates and other modality teachers wanting to deepen their practice. Some people have a specific area they want to address, such as chronic pain or repetitive strain, and some simply have an interest in life-long learning.
As a theatre performer, I am especially interested in working with people from the performing arts – actors, dancers and musicians. I have taught Feldenkrais for performance at Rose Bruford and Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, and at the universities of Cambridge, Kent, Essex and Queen Mary, London. I am currently involved in a research project with the university of Kent working with autistic children – specifically girls – through performance and Feldenkrais.
As well as being a Feldenkrais practitioner, I am a performer, theatre-maker, researcher and mother.
In the 90s, I did a degree in Philosophy and History of Art, and trained as a performer at the Lecoq School in Paris. I worked in theatre, performing and directing in France and Portugal until 2008. I founded my theatre company, Beady Eye, in the UK in 2009 and toured nationally and internationally until becoming a mother in 2013.
I came to Feldenkrais through my performance work. It was transformational for me in terms of avoiding injury and opening up creative pathways. My PhD at Royal Holloway, University of London, was on Feldenkrais, performance and puppetry.
