Australian Feldenkrais Guild Online Summit 2020
Day 3 - Embodied Resilience
When life pulls the rug from under our feet how do we respond? Do we tense up or hold our breath? Do we collapse in a heap or get wildly busy? Can we see and hear what is around us? Can we sense the ground beneath us?
The Feldenkrais Method helps us connect with our quiet, confident and playful selves.
Learning to become more connected with our body and breath; with gravity and ground; and with our environments through our senses is a marvellous gift that awakens new experiences for living a easy, pleasurable and choice filled life.
Join Annemarie, Jenny, Lynda and Molly as we discuss how the Feldenkrais Method can support us in finding an embodied resiliency.

Lynda Johnston enjoys movement and learning, and both her professional and personal life has centred around health, fitness, wellness and education. Her interest in learning and human movement really began after becoming a parent. The opportunity and interest of many hours observation of the gradual development and movement of children lead Lynda to working with a busy preschool Kindergym program for many years. Enjoying the blend of movement and education and assisting others she continued her learning through training in Fitness and Pilates and during that time she first sampled the Feldenkrais Method and found it really interesting.
Becoming a Feldenkrais Practitioner truly deepened her understanding of learning and movement, the mind and body connection and the endless possibilities and potential of both. Working with movement in a variety of ways, with people of all ages, has consolidated for Lynda their importance to ensure resilient health and wellbeing.
Jenny D’Cruz is a Feldenkrais Practitioner and Physiotherapist.As a Physiotherapist seeking ways to further assist her clients experiencing pain and movement issues, Jenny was directed by a colleague towards the Feldenkrais Method. She found through her own experience with Feldenkrais lessons that movement quality and posture became easier, more comfortable and graceful. Daily exercise and work also became more enjoyable. Jenny qualified as a Feldenkrais Practitioner in 2017 and is inspired to share this with others.
With the challenges and changes Australians have faced in 2020 due to the Australian Bushfire Crisis and Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic Jenny has been very interested in learning how the Feldenkrais Method can help us to develop our capacity for resilience. In a conversation with 3 of her colleagues in Perth she will share some of her experiences and learnings about how our ability to adapt and respond positively to constraints and change can grow.
