I have been a professional massage therapist since 2010 and began training as a Feldenkrais practitioner in 2014. My first experience of Feldenkrais was aged 17 – it was our warm-ups in a youth theatre ensemble I was part. Exploring movements that I’d never even considered before was incredibly engaging and it left me feeling light and free. This joy in making in discoveries in your own body continues to delight, surprise and stimulate a number of years on, as the understandings of movement and the human body deepen with each client I get to work with.
I love the variety of different people I come in contact with through my work; ranging from professional dancers (contracting for Bangarra Dance Theatre, The Australian Ballet) to those on an Aged Home Care Package (tremendously fulfilling demographic to work with) the common denominator is the adaptability of the human body. Facilitating more ease and connection in how someone moves and feels is what I am all about.
I teach weekly Feldenkrais classes and have run workshops for Sydney Fringe, Woodford Folk Festival and City of Sydney Libraries as well as a handful of retreats.
I have always enjoyed rearranging spaces, using the elements that are already there and configuring them with both function and aesthetics in mind. What joy, as this skill of configuring spatial dynamics is essentially what I get to do every day with the human body and how it moves!
