Certified FELDENKRAIS© Practitioner FVD and certified Assistant Trainer

Born 1968 in Melbourne, Australia, I have been a Feldenkrais teacher since 1999. Based in Hamburg, Germany, I teach full-time, both in my own practice as well as within Feldenkrais Professional Training Programs. I am passionate about learning and movement and this wonderful method never ceases to fascinate me as a means for growth and personal development.

We can find so many ways to explore freedom within ourselves. Which means autonomy, agency and authenticity. I love teaching Feldenkrais classes as a vehicle for exploring attuntement with onesself... Empowering you to embrace your shortcomings, live more of your potential, avow your dreams and harness your resources.

Strategies for facilitating learning: Advanced Workshop Series (ATM only)

In this workshop series we make such instructions as "taking a break" the focus of the lesson itself. By addressing some of the learning strategies that are used in every Feldenkrais lesson directly, you can deepen your understanding as to why these hints are so important, what is behind them and why they work. You will be able to bring your students into that learning space much more easily if you understand the fundamentals behind these so obvious, yet so elusive, details.

Because of the many requests to teach this series in English, I will start the series from the beginning again with "The Magic of Micromovements" on 24th of September.

Miniworkshops on Saturday morninings

Public Workshop (online) 5th/6th Nov.: "Symmetry"

In collaboration with Instituto Feldenkrais España (English/Spanish)

Neither the internal organs, nor the brain, nor even our skeleton are symmetrical. Our movement is biased to facilitate the use of the dominant hand, eye and leg. And we have all developed personal inequalities due to both necessary and unnecessary functional compensation patterns. Despite all these differences between our two sides and the way we use them, the nervous system enables us to coordinate ourselves as a whole, so that we can move through space in in the direction we choose and end up where we intended to go. The workshop will be taught in English, with translation into Spanish.

"Symmetry" 5th-6th November 2022
12:30-15:00 and 16:00-18:30 CET on Zoom

Functional Integration for practitioners and students

Photo of making appointments for Functional Integration
Single lessons, package deal or 3-hour Intensive; in person or online

No matter how many years we work as Feldenkrais practitioners ourselves, we remain human beings subject to all the ins and outs of life. Our journey continues with new discoveries and set backs. Just as for anyone, an FI lesson can help to gain new perspective, remind oursleves of our ability to self-regulate and re-find the elusive obvious. I will address your individual needs specifically and sensitively and use my competence and experience to offer the best possible framework for your lesson.

Madrid: "Your Carriage of the Head"

2nd-5th December 2022 with Jaime Polanco & Kathryn Hume-Cook

"Your Carriage of the Head" is a 4-Day Advanced Training for accredited Feldenkrais Teachers, including two Public Workshops on the weekend, led by Jaime Polanco, (Spain) and Kathryn Hume-Cook (Australia/Germany). Join two of your favourite teachers in this special event, where you get two-for-the-price-of-one... and can experience the complementary nature of our teaching and knowledge. We follow the underlying ideals of skeletal support, axial rotation, freedom of the breath, reversibilty of movement and organisation around the cylinder in order to find a sense of "neutral" for human movement.

Hamburg: "Organisation around the Midline"

8th-12th February 2023 with Jaime Polanco (Spain) in Hamburg

"The Organisation around the Midline" is a 5-Day Advanced Training for accredited Feldenkrais Teachers. I am delighted to host my colleague Jaime Polanco from the Instituto Feldenkrais, who is also the first Spanish Assistant Trainer, for this rare opportunity to experience his teaching live in Hamburg. The unique Functional Integration lesson he has developed reflects his deep understanding of our work and is both original and effective. Jaimes' background as a physiotherapist as well as his intense work in Feldenkrais Trainings allows him to teach with great clarity and a wealth of background knowledge.
