Fantastic movement and nervous system resources to support us through menopause. Feldenkrais, with Bones for Life and Somatic Experiencing.

About this event


I'm excited and moved to trial this course over 6 evenings in June/July at the fantastic Big Drum in Canterbury.

Wherever you are in your journey towards, through or post menopause, it's an important time of transition for people who have periods. Like all journeys worth making, there are joys and challenges on the path!

I was inspired to create this series as I, and many of my friends, approach or navigate this time in our lives. There is not much recognition of the issues we face, so let's do something about that!

In this course, I will introduce you do some movement magic that can *really* help! And it's easy to integrate into your everyday life.


Osteoporosis is a real fear. Whether you have it or not right now, there is plenty that can be done to prevent or limit it, and improve and develop your bone strength.


Intelligent neuromovement sequences allow you to discover fluid movement and help oil and soothe any aches and pains. You'll learn how to attend to your everyday movement so it becomes a source of pleasure and discovery.


It can be a roller-coaster, let's face it! Learning to regulate our nervous systems through somatic experience gives us the power to ride the waves. (Mixed metaphors!)


There will be time each week to share stories and experience. But you don't have to, of course! Simply by coming, you will find support and be supported by others.


I have been a Feldenkrais Somatic Education Practitioner since 2005 and this is the main practice I will draw on in these sessions. I also have a lot of experience with Bones For Life® (Ruthy Alon) and Somatic Experiencing® (Peter Levine, Irene Lyon). These flavour my teaching. My background is in performance so my style is quite playful. I am in perimenopause. I will be supported and accompanied in this training by Sally Fincher, trainee Feldenkrais Practitioner, who is post-menopausal.


6 Wednesday evenings 8-9.30pm in 15 June-20 July in central Canterbury (29 June may be on Zoom, tbc). This is a course, so drop-in is not possible. The taught content will be recorded and sent out the following day in case you need to miss a session.


£90 or £60 concession (low-wage, unwaged, students). This price is for the WHOLE course. When booking just select any date and book one ticket per person only!
