I work with people from all walks of life who are interested in exploring and improving their self-use and functioning in everyday life.

I am also associated with the Community 
Education Service and the Women’s Network through which I have been offering classes and workshops.


In 1988 I emigrated with my husband from Germany to New Zealand.
While my professional life has been chequered, I now find to my delight that some of my life-long interests are effectively integrated in my Feldenkrais practice: well-being, information sharing, and facilitating learning.
With the Feldenkrais® Method I now find myself coming to grips with our functioning at deeper levels, and this has taken me on a life path of awakening to myself in surprising ways.

In our early life it is through sensation and movement that we first make sense of ourselves and the world around us. Through Feldenkrais we can recapture some of this original way of being in the world, and as adults it is possible for us to relearn ease by paying attention to our sensations in movement.                                                                                               

It is now my pleasure to share information that can help us unlock unused potential to allow more choice in our whole functioning. With that discovery we can begin to enjoy a renewed vitality thriving alongside our natural ageing process.


“Movement is Life. Life is a process. Improve the quality of the  process, and you improve the quality of life itself.” 

Moshe Feldenkrais
