I have been working in the field of Theatre and the Performing Arts for the last 25 years as an actor, director, writer and teacher. In 1995, I suffered a back injury that left me immobile for 6 weeks. I recovered but was left feeling very stiff and nervous of moving. For an active director and performer, this was disastrous! Luckily, I was introduced to the Feldenkrais Method by another theatre director and I was amazed at how quickly I not only recovered but improved my range of movement as well as my confidence and self esteem.
I am now a qualified teacher/practitioner of the Feldenkrais Method and work with a variety of people: students and professionals in Theatre, Dance, Music and Puppetry. (including students from Central School of Speech & Drama (CSSD), The London School of Puppetry, University of Hull and University Centre Doncaster). I also run classes for the general public - people looking for easier everyday movement, better performance in sports and recovery from injury and illness.
I’m interested not only in running classes and individual sessions for people but also in taking Feldenkrais into the workplace. The Feldenkrais Method doesn't need special equipment or outfits - just a comfortable space to sit or lie down - and a chance to take time for yourself. I have students who ask me how often do I do Feldenkrais and I reply “all the time”.
