I graduated in the 2015 class of the Feldenkrais® Practitioner Training Program led by David Zemach-Bersin, who worked directly with Moshe Feldenkrais for ten years. Throughout the training I learned from several extraordinary practitioners, many of whom had studied with Moshe directly, including Sherryl Field, Anna Johnson, Deborah Bowes, Aliza Stewart, Arlyn Zones, Carl and Lucia Ginsberg, and Carol Kress.
I bring over 35 years of experience as a celebrated choreographer, dancer and educator to my practice. Over the past few years, I have taught Awareness Through Movement lessons in places such as ImPulsTanz in Vienna, Austria, CNDC Masters Program in Angers, France, PADL West/San Diego, The Home School in Miami, Florida, and in New York at Movement Research, Eugene Lang/The New School, Gibney Dance Center, and the Feldenkrais Institute. I have started a private practice based in New York City. I am one of the regular practitioners at the Wellness Clinic, a monthly low-cost bodywork clinic in Brooklyn.
I came to the Feldenkrais Method® after years of study in other mind/body systems and after years of struggling with back pain. I found that the non-corrective, movement-based approach of the Feldenkrais Method® was unique in its ability to bring me out of pain and restore my sense of well-being. As a result I wanted to learn how to practice the Method myself, especially because I wanted to work with all kinds of people. When I started my training I was thrilled to learn that the central tenet of the Method is that every single person can learn and improve. This was perfectly in line with what I already believed about people’s potential.
I know that seeking a way out of pain can be challenging. It makes you feel vulnerable and frustrated. And I know that for a person from LGBTQIA and POC communities, a person living with disability, or an elderly citizen, bodywork can be fraught with uncomfortable dynamics. I pride myself on creating a candid, supportive and safe space for everyone.
