My mission is to teach the essential components of ‘movement that facilitates learning’ to children with neurological challenges and the adults in their lives. Through these lessons, families learn new ways for their child to access movement potentials that enhance intellect, creativity, and pleasure.
As a certified practitioner of Feldenkrais® and the Anat Baniel Method for ChildrenSM I guide children verbally and with my hands to help them feel directions of movement that are currently easy for them. Children combine these movement potentials with their intention as they follow their own curiosity and reach to learn.
Parents – Elders – Professionals
One of the necessities of youth is continued learning. Using a variety of specific movement sequences, I teach movement options that help to keep the body and the brain supple and responsive. These lessons are structured to enhance the learning processes in the areas that are essential to health, vitality and sensuality. Parents learn, by experiencing movement lessons themselves, how to help further their child’s learning in gentle, playful and productive ways.
“. . . The body reflects attitudes of the mind, improve the body and you must improve the mind.”
In my work over the past 25 years, I have found that two primary abilities are present for physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.
To let go of unnecessary muscular tension and to rest –
awake and present – supported by the floor.
Awareness in Motion
To apply present attention to all forms of movement –
thought, emotion, the breath or intention.
“When we know what we do, we do what we want.” M. Feldenkrais
I work with the body, mind and spirit as an interrelated, interconnected whole. When I use Gestalt listening skills with Feldenkrais® or Anat Baniel Methodsm lessons, I am working with the dynamic relationship of the skills of Just Being and Awareness in Motion, contacting, supporting and empowering the myriad possibilities for growth and health in each person.
