"Two weeks ago I knew nothing about Feldenkrais - I didn't even know how to pronounce it until Emma's session for the ISM, which fortunately alerted me to the course. I'm so glad that I signed up for it, as a last minute participant; it was one of those decisions that appear when most needed, and which may well have been life-changing."
The course was brilliantly planned, with the mixture of ATM, being able to play our instruments, discussion in breakout groups and coming back together, and the Zoom platform worked so well;
What really stood out for me last week was generosity and acceptance: the generosity of the three of you to each other and to us, and the importance of accepting ourselves as we are.
A friend of mine said that she didn't understand Feldenkrais but the results were magic - and that is exactly what I feel. "
"Thank you so much for EVERYTHING you did to get this Programme out to us. Your organisation was fabulous and, honestly, this was one of the best things I’ve done during Lockdown. I don’t write a regular journal but wrote more than usual that week and here are some of my comments to myself: Do Less. Trust More. Move Focus. Come from a place of ease. Generosity, Generosity, Generosity (that’s you all by the way)."
"Many thanks for running an excellent course at the weekend. It was just what I needed"
"Thank you so much for last week and congratulations on putting together such a successful course. I think we all got a lot from it as it was a very well balanced experience with a great range of ATMs (group classes) and interesting discussions. Like many others, I really enjoyed your three quite different styles and approaches and it was great the way you shared it out between you."
"I'm noticing more Feldenkrais principles creeping into my practice - for instance, awareness of one voice at a time in a fugue, rather than the attention shifting to whichever voice has the more 'interesting' part. I love the message about being kind to ourselves as well, again something that doesn't come naturally. I don't feel guilty when I take breaks now!"
"Thank you all for the huge amount of work you must have put into preparing and for your kind, generous and understanding way of delivering a fascinating and hugely useful course."
"I enjoyed feeling more connected to all that is happening in my body. When I played at the end I felt more creative and free."
"I felt more grounded and supported throughout my body. Playing felt more fluid with richer long notes and more fluency with fast passages."
