I am a Guild Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner. I came to The Feldenkrais Method after having a chronic back pain condition for about 15 years. I have studied with Cheryl Reinhardt for several decades now, starting in 1989. I got my certification in 2011, with Arlyn Zones as my main trainer, also studying with Carol Kress, Elizabeth Beringer, David Zemach Bersin, Olena Nitefor, and Larry Goldfarb, among others. I have been exploring the connections between dancing, creativity and Feldenkrais in my own dance practice for many years, and sharing the joy and excitement of what Feldenkrais can do with friends and family for many decades. I bring all this into my current teaching and work with "high performers" like athletes and performers, people with neurological conditions like Parkinsons, MS, or stroke, and people with chronic pain issues. I teach ongoing classes in "Awareness Through Movement," known as ATM, and work one-on-one with people privately, known as Functional Integration or FI.
