Ruthy Alon

Here is a quote by Ruthy Alon from her book "Mindful Spontaniety".  Ruthy is amazing; check out her videos on you tube and you will see how we can move as we grow into our 70s, 80s, forever!

"...the manner in which you treat your body—your most actual asset and the temple of your soul—is inseparable from the manner in which you cope with other aspects of your life." 
-Ruthy Alon, Mindful Spontaneity 
(pg 3 - Chapter: Functional Honesty)

The Miracle of the Breath

I have just finished reading a book called "The Miracle of the Breath" by Andy Caponigro. This book clearly describes breathing techniques to use for healing your body and mind as well breathing exercises to connect to the Divine. Andy Caponigro has studied the history of breath in Indian, Chinese, Christian and Hebrew cultures and weaves stories and facts into the book.

The exercises are very simple and easy to use and the approach is consistent with the approach we use in Feldenkrais in that it is easy, gentle, and mindful. If you are wanting to get into a meditation routine I highly recommend the approach described in this book.

Using My Brain

Tell your brain what to do

Are you a list person? Some people are and some people aren't.  Recently I started being very deliberate with my list making: daily lists that I review every morning.  It is like I'm giving my brain a to-do list.

What I notice is that I am much more efficient and complete many more of the tasks that I have on the list.. I am giving my brain something to do and find myself organized to do things effortlessly; my timing is good and the necessary pieces seem to be available.

Leaky Gut Syndrome

Here is a link to an article in NYTimes about a young child that was diagnosed with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis and found complete remission with a gluten free diet.
NYTimes article

It is an idea worth looking at if you or your child has health challenges, especially anything that might be autoimmune.

Anat Baniel in Vancouver

It is official - Anat Baniel is coming to Vancouver to teach a one day workshop for parents and caregivers of special needs children on April 6, 2013.   This will be excellent for Feldenkrais practitioners, physiotherapists or occupational therapist who work with special needs children.

I recommend this workshop for all those people who are considering doing the Anat Baniel Basic Training (which is a pre-requisite for the mastery program).

January class Schedule


 TRANSFORMATION - what it means to you

Starting a new year always gets me thinking of change. What is more powerful than change is transformation which means everything changes; you are playing a whole new game!

 Movement lessons are transformational; when you engage in a regular Transformational Movement class you will notice that all areas of your life change. Change occurs in an organic, natural, easy way. You will feel more like your old self, your younger self. The fact that you move like a younger you is just a small bonus to living a life where you feel more connected and alive and more effective in how you live!

 Give yourself the gift of life; your life! Sign up now for Transformation Movement Lessons!

 If the class time is not convenient you can book individual sessions that are designed for your needs and at a time of your convenience. My office is in the BodyMind Centre 635 Victoria Street. Phone or email  to book a session:


 When: Tuesday 7:15-8:15 January 8 to March 26, 2013

 Where: Nuance Dance Studio, 253 Nuance Dance Studio, Kamloops, BC

 Cost: $12 drop in, $50 for a 5-session punch card

 Note: There will be no day-time classes because I have been called to Jury Duty. Once I know when I'm available to teach during the day I will send out a notice. ***
