Summer Feet

Summer Feet

It happens every year: March comes along and my feet start to squirm. They are tired of being contained in shoes and yearn to explore naked again. They love making skin-to-earth contact with the ground. They are happiest in the garden planting root vegetables. It always takes a little time for me to get my […]

Feldenkrais Classes in Victoria: Make New Trails in Your Nervous System

Feldenkrais Classes in Victoria: Make New Trails in Your Nervous System

Your nervous system is built to learn. Learning can be defined as a lasting change in behaviour as a result of experience. When there is a change in behaviour, there is a change (literally) in your brain. Feldenkrais classes offer experiences to enhance and create new pathways in your nervous system. The result? Changes in […]

A Solstice Storytelling Event for Women: Inanna’s Descent

A Solstice Storytelling Event for Women: Inanna's Descent

In a time when stories were still written in stone, a great deity was revered. Inanna, queen of heaven and earth, chose to give up everything in her descent to the underworld. Through seven gates, she was stripped of all accomplishments from her fruitful life and left with nothing but the choice to be reborn. […]


Feldenkrais® Classes in Victoria: A Curious Exploration in Wonderland

Feldenkrais® Classes in Victoria: A Curious Exploration in Wonderland

I’ve just revisited Lewis Carroll’s timeless tale Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and was inspired to use the story as an analogy of Feldenkrais®. I see it like this: In Wonderland the ordinary rules of the everyday world are nonexistent and habitual concepts dissolve. Alice shrinks to the size of a bird on the ground, grows taller […]


Bring Your Skeleton out of the Closet

Bring Your Skeleton out of the Closet

Hallows’ Eve is upon us. This celebrated day is an ancient festival dedicated to the end of the harvest season and to the dead. I follow the Pagan calendar and call this celebration Samhain: I consider it to be the birth of a new year. At this time it is said that the veil between […]


Coming Home: A New Class Series

Coming Home: A New Class Series

How do you reside inside the fabric of your own skin? How secure are you in the architecture of your bones? How do you inhabit the body in which you live? These questions resurfaced for me after I revisited an essay by one of my favorite authors, Wendell Berry, titled “The Body and the Earth.” […]


Why The Nature of Movement?

Why The Nature of Movement?

What caught me was the river. I was traveling in my canoe, my face numbed from the cold headwind, my weathered fingers clutching the paddle. I didn’t skip a beat as I thrust the paddle into the fast-moving current, my exhausted body navigating through the winding river. I glanced at the banks of the North […]
