We are all—as part of the human condition—moving and being moved. Studies show that when we see someone perform a movement, we share the experience on a visceral level. When we see movement performed in a context that gives it deeper meaning, we feel its emotional underpinnings.

I am drawn to the dance of everyday living, and I am interested in the hero’s journey of the students I mentor. By teaching them how to use movement and awareness as the means to understand themselves more deeply, I trust that they will find purpose, meaning, and beauty in their actions along the way.

It is a really interesting process-oriented method that helps to bring about positive physical, cognitive and emotional changes.

In my teaching practice I work with many wonderful people, who study Feldenkrais for many different reasons. Some come to improve their overall health. Others use it to better manage stress. I also work with athletes and performing artists who want to improve their movement efficiency and find greater expressive quality in their movement.

As you can probably imagine, my students inspire me every day, and when I see a trend that I think can help a lot of people, it turns into a book or audio program. My two most recent publications are a perfect example. "Awake Naps" started as a way to help some of my teenage students who were feeling very stressed. "Meditation: State of Mind or State of Awareness" came about as part of my research process into meditation, and how to apply Feldenkrais to it, in order to help out people who find more traditional forms of meditation challenging.
