"I’ve been practicing the Feldenkrais Method since 2001. Although I have an extensive background as a physiotherapist, I currently work exclusively in my Feldenkrais practice.
I am very much looking forward to the Kelowna training because I LOVE to learn, and I LOVE participating in others “a-ha” moments of learning. I want to bring my own level of expertise in this method to a higher level, and I love to have fun while doing so. This team we have formed, the locale, and context of a practitioner training program in Kelowna, Canada, will provide the most amazing means of achieving this with a healthy dose of challenge, plenty of support and teamwork, and great minds and hearts working together to bring every single person involved to a greater level of self-awareness and better lives."
