Back to School!

I’m back after a long break from posting here. My apologies, but sometimes life gets too busy communicating to communicate! I hope you’ve had a great summer and I’ve enjoyed meeting a lot of new clients over the last few months, as well as planning new classes and collaborations for the autumn. A full and up to date version of the new classes and events is in the calendar and you can also go to the Classes page to see what’s on offer.

Happy New Year!

Here we are, at the start of a new year and I’m really excited about the possibilities that could be waiting! January got a great start last weekend with the first First Saturday workshop “Improve Your Stride” at Breathe Pilates. We had a full class, full of a really interesting range of people all keen to explore better ways of moving.

Training Days

I’m part of the Feldenkrais Guild UK and about four times a year we get together for advanced training, sharing ideas and developing our skills as Feldenkrais practitioners. Last weekend, I had an enjoyable two days looking at new business ideas for my clients (lovely short of the back of my head here!). Watch this space for news of events, offers and classes in 2017.

Finding greater flexibility…

Had a very enjoyable class yesterday at Breathe Pilates where we explored flexibility in ankles and feet which is so important for supporting movement in the whole body and giving knees some much needed help! This month we’re going to develop the theme of flexibility in feet, ankles and knees and how we can integrate the whole body in this.

Feldenkrais for Dummies

This morning I’ve been listening to this excellent programme from Australia’s ABC network “The Body Sphere”. It contains one of the clearest explanations of The Feldenkrais Method and also has an interview with Dr Frank Wildman who wrote “The Busy Person’s Guide to Easier Movement” – a publication I recommend to anyone interested in an introduction to The Method.
