I LOVE Learning almost as much as I LOVE Teaching! I also believe that health, wellness and embodied learning should be accessible to everyone. Thus, I have partnered with other like-minded practitioners to offer a variety of weekly classes, workshops and events that can support you along your journey to self-discovery.

The Feldenkrais 101 Workshops explore a different theme each month. The workshops are ideal for those new to the Feldenkrais Method® as well as those who have experience and are looking to deepen their practice. Each workshop they provide a practical introduction and in-depth exploration of one of the core principles of Awareness Through Movement®.
The Latin roots for support literally meant “to carry from below.” This workshop will explore how the equal & opposite forces we generate from the surfaces we’re on and through our joints create efficient & flexible behavior.

Reversibility is one of the guiding principles of well organized movement. It is the ability to organize for the action, it’s suspension, or reversal at any moment. To turn around, go back, change your mind & do something else?

These Feldenkrais Classes take you through a series of gentle movement sequences that create immediate improvements in personal awareness, posture, balance and flexibility. Each Awareness Through Movement class is offers a 30-min Tea & Talk Time for sharing your experience, asking questions or to simply get to know the grow community.
These classes are designed specifically for those who experience chronic pain, suffering from high stress or those seeking to avoid injuries related to repetitive motions. Each class is complete with a series of gentle movement sequences, mindfulness practices to integrate into daily life, and a supportive community. Each class is followed by an optional 30-min Tea & Talk.
These classes offer a unique opportunity for small groups of parents to come together and grow their ability to appreciate and nurture the nuances of their infants’ unfolding development. By learning to look for the natural progression of development and better understand their infants’ subtle cues of communication, parents are able to encourage each infant to learn and explore at it’s own pace. Classes are held in a relaxing, calm and infant friendly-environment and followed by an optional 30-minute “Tea & Talk Time.”
Interested in Meditation but can’t sit still? Come and explore how to move, learn, think and feel with a sense of compassion, non-judgment and curiosity. You will learn to listen to your breath and our bodily cues as feedback for when we have disconnected from our sense of compassion.
We will explore our personal experience of: “What is non-compassionate movement?” and how we can recognize when we have fallen into non-compassion for our selves? Non-compassionate movement creates an internal conflict between our imagined ideal of how we should beand how we actually are. For many of us self-aggression and creep into just about any area of our daily life and can manifest as repetitive stress-injury, stress, burn out and a sense of never being good enough
Drop-in anytime during these classes for a bit of inspiration, relaxation, regeneration and rejuvenation! The meditation hour will be divided into 15-minute segments of guided meditations to allow individuals to easily come and go as their schedule requires. Nourish and strengthen your mind with powerful messages and allow yourself a little time to relax and experience peace. Take a break from your day and give yourself the time and space you need to take care of yourself, so that you are better able to be peace filled as you accomplish that to-do list, achieve your goals, and manage all the pressures of everyday life.
