Wednesday Evening Classes
Awareness Through Movement
6.30-7.30pm – £10 Drop-In
This class is designed to develop your internal sensory awareness and stimulate your innate ability to learn and create new possibilities for yourself. Subtle and playful movement sequences free you from deeply ingrained habits and holding patterns that limit your mobility and rob you of energy.
7.45-8.45pm – £10 Drop-In
Awareness Through Movement lessons that combine state-of-the-art vocal science with the neuroscience of learning, to enhance every aspect of voice use, from presenting, to singing, to self-development and transformation.
Pilates and Yoga-style mats provided, classes are on the first floor

Awareness Through Movement in the Crow’s Nest
We meet on Thursday nights on pre-arranged dates (alternate weeks from May onwards), in Studio 3, in the area upstairs known as the Hub.
Telegraph Hill Centre
Studio 3 – The Hub
Class Times – 7pm to 8pm:
We meet at 6.50pm in the Centre foyer, and ascend (45) stairs as a group – the room is at the very top of the building, hence the name of the class – the view is amazing!
UPDATE – the centre is organising a system that will enable any latecomers to buzz in at the back door – I propose that once it is installed we continue to meet at 6.50pm and that anyone running late lets me know, so we know to expect you.
Fee per class £12 – to be paid in advance.
I prefer you to commit to 4 classes – £48, but am also happy to accept payment for 2 classes in advance, as long as you give me plenty of notice if you are leaving the class, so I can find a replacement.
As I do understand that committing to pay for a class even if you cannot attend can feel like a big step I am offering all committed members of the class private Feldenkrais sessions at £30, plus an extra £5 off for every class you miss.
You need to bring your own mat and head support; bring anything you need to make sure you are comfortable on the floor. The room is well supplied with radiators – so far we have not had heating issues.
18.7.19 – We can decide what to do in the summer nearer the time.

Integrating The Rhythms Of Life
June 1st 1–5pm £60/£50
Synchronise, harmonise and integrate the inner pulsations, oscillations and rippling, fluid connections between your many sphincters and your many diaphragms, and discover how to dance with joy to your inner beat.
Human beings are not like mechanisms, instead we are a sophisticated system of integrated processes, and we are always adjusting our inner state of being, but not always with a clear awareness of how to establish a more lasting, deeper-rooted experience of well being. This workshop will provide you with a set of Awareness Through Movement sequences that will–with regular practise–rebuild your core organisation from the inside out. This workshop is central to both my Embodied Voice and BodyMindfulness trainings. It uses some sounds but does not involve any performance elements. If you would like to know more about this aspect of my teaching, you can read a more detailed explanation in this article.
The Sunflower Centre
Dynamic Embodiment From Your Core
The Sunflower Centre, Hilly Fields, SE4
Sunday, June 9th, 2-6pm
Feldenkrais is a process of self-development that uses focussed, intelligent, primal movement sequences to reawaken those parts of our selves that have become disconnected, armoured, and blocked from our self-awareness.
These Awareness Through Movement sequences are designed to improve our ability to integrate all the separate parts of our selves into a fully active, fully engaged, vibrant and ever-evolving living being.
Embodiment and alignment are part of the process we are all engaged in when we are ready to take charge of developing and maturing ourselves. This path to self-maturation is what Feldenkrais is all about, and it can be experienced in many ways.
It can be your path to greater self-awareness
your path to self-healing
your path to more spontaneity and authenticity in your daily being
your path to joy.
Biomechanically this dynamic alignment can be experienced as a lively, responsive interaction between your skeleton, your deepest core muscle systems, and the sensory-fascial web that contains, interconnects, and enlivens your bodily sense of self.
Emotionally we become more aware of–and more at ease with–the feelings that bubble up from inside, and thus much more able to allow ourselves to just be in the moment, even when experiencing intense sensations.
Awareness Through Movement allows you to progressively unravel everything you are doing that controls your feelings, and blocks the flow of energy, vitality and pleasure that we could all experience with ease as very young children – although it is important to recognise that, for some of us, this flow had already been stemmed by our experience of our mother’s stresses while we were still in the womb.
This workshop is designed to begin the very deep releasing processes from our core musculature that allow us all to regain the ability to experience fully the joy of living.
This will be a very practical workshop and you will receive notes and supporting materials to help you maintain the improvements you experience from this immersive Awareness Through Movement experience.
All workshops 2 – 6pm, £60/£50
