When you know what you are doing,

you can do what you want.

Moshe Feldenkrais

Move Better.  Feel Better.  Do Stuff Better!

Our daily movements – as well as the ways in which we are tight and LIMIT our movements – are built on body habits and preferences built over our lifetime.

We are often oblivious of the habits that limit us – and how they limit us.  This is why, for example, sit-ups are very difficult for some people – yet they are easy for others.  It’s often not a lack of strength that limits you – instead, it may be HOW you do it that makes it hard.

The good news is, these habits can change.  You can create easier, better movement – at any age!

In these classes and events with me, discover how smart your body is, and how you can release patterns and replace them with movement that feels good – and WORKS – for YOU.  Without strain.  With fun.  With results that you can take out into the world and use right away.

This is neuroplasticity IN ACTION.  These classes and events guide you in intriguing ways to tap into the intelligence of your own nervous system, to create choice.

Your body LOVES feeling good, and LOVES choice.  Ready to create that for yourself?

WORKSHOPS, PRESENTATIONS AND WEBINARS:

I LOVE doing workshops, presentations and webinars tailored to the interests of a specific group.

Here are two examples of presentations about one of my signature topics: The Biology of Fight/Flight and Freeze, and how to work WITH your smart body to transition over into the life force and vitality that is found in the biology of Felt Safety.

If you would like me to present on something similar tailored for YOUR group, get in touch and we can make that happen.

Similarly, if you would like me to offer a Feldenkrais® workshop for people you know, or a Tellington TTouch® horse clinic, let’s chat and make THAT happen!

The Biology of Fight/Flight and Freeze, compared to the “All is Well” state

Here is a webinar I did on Facebook with Scott Forrester, author of the book “The Aware Athlete”.  He is an ultra-long-distance runner, and a Feldenkrais® Practitioner.  We talk about the biology of fight/flight and freeze compared to the “all is well” state, and some things you can do to shift into the “all is well” state which supports better health and better performance.

Click on this link, and it will (or should!) take you to the FaceBook interview:

Violet van Hees, Tellington TTouch® Practitioner, and Feldenkrais® Practitioner shares her knowledge of the Vagal Response and how SURE FOOT® can help horses land in a safe place.

Enjoy an infusion of movement inspiration, information and integration – right where you are!

Click below to check out my collection of free blog posts and wee videos, which speak to specific topics and offer practical tips for you. I offer a different way of thinking about and understanding things – which many have found really helpful!  For example, learn about:

  • how your shoulder blade is designed to act as a chair for your arm bone, and is meant to slide and glide over your ribs so that your arm and shoulder can be strong
  • why “sucking in your abs” actually works AGAINST you for strength and a happy back, and what to do instead
  • how to feel and be safer when walking on a slippery surface (like snowy or icy ground)
  • how to work with your nervous system, to help find good function after an injury or surgery

Check out a topic that catches your interest.  Then – grab your curiosity, and go exploring! What a great way to plant seeds and Grow YOUR Movement Freedom, anywhere and anytime.  Yay!
