After living in the SF Bay Area for over 25 years, I moved to Reno. I have been teaching Awareness Through Movement® classes here since 2009 and giving Functional Integration lessons since 2011. I am the only guild-certified Feldenkrais teacher in Nevada teaching ongoing public Feldenkrais classes.
I am vitally and deeply interested in working with people who wish to explore their movement patterns and discover what stands in the way of their desired improvement and goals in life. I am also open and interested in applying the Feldenkrais principles to any physical challenge, including cancer and cancer recovery. I also have a special interest in scoliosis and the spine; the function of the pelvis as a center of movement power and health; how the pelvic floor system relates to issues of balance, breathing; uro-genital health and function, and working with equestrians in balance, breath, and clearing communication.
The Feldenkrais Method is one of the only self-empowering, non-drug, non-surgical ways for people to improve any and every aspect of their movement -- meaning vision, stability, balance, ease, comfort, range, grace and efficiency.
Dr. Feldenkrais developed his body of work based upon his understanding that everyone, at any age and in any condition, can optimize or improve their movement and function. This is true for people with injuries, children/adults with developmental issues, anyone with health conditions, poor movement habits or people who wish to improve their performance on the stage or in sport. And not surprisingly, improving the efficiency of movement also has a huge impact in reducing pain.
My desire is to introduce Feldenkrais to as many people as I can, and to make it affordable and accessible to those who want and need it. Self study and personal exploration in this way can be truly life sustaining and life changing -- whether you undertake it to relieve pain, enhance function or capacity or to improve a health condition, or to improve your internal connections to yourself and your spirit -- you will find stability and consciousness in much more of your life, making it easier for you to thrive and do the things you value and love, for a longer time.
