Practice:

In my classes and private practise I work with a variety of people with various backgrounds. Some people are looking to move more comfortably in daily life, need assistance with specific actions or are interested in their further development. Others have a special interest in yoga, dance, sports, drama or music.

Many people I see experience movement restrictions and pain. I also work with babies/children (typically developing or with special needs)and their parents in individual session or groups. I further work with people recovering from injuries or operations and with people experiencing neurological challenges.

Biography:

Working as a kindergarten teacher in Switzerland and through my own personal process, I became aware of how important movement is in human development and learning. After various experiences in Dance, Medau Rhythmic, Eutonie and Yoga, I came into contact with the Feldenkrais Method and was fascinated by its unique combination of movement, psychology and learning. I decided to enrol in a professional Feldenkrais training and completed my training with Ruthy Alon in Florence in 1997.

Moving to England in 1996, I began to build my Feldenkrais practice alongside starting a family.

To deepen my understanding of the Method, but also because I believe in supervision for teaching professions, I participated in a Mentoring course with Larry Goldfarb in Amsterdam, graduating in 2006. Between 2011 and 2013, I took part in Chava Shelhav's Child'Space training in Amsterdam which enabled me to gain a much better understanding of how to apply the principles of the Feldenkrais Method to working with babies, infants and their parents. I now run parent and baby groups and work individually with typically developing babies or with babies with special needs or neurological challenges. I have become a Feldenkrais Assistant Trainer in2020.
