Tanya was working as a Physiotherapist in Rehabilitation in 1982 when she discovered Feldenkrais, which enabled her to learn to move gracefully, and more importantly, comfortably. It provoked her ongoing curiosity about how our habitual movement patterns can lead to stress, pain and injury, and how the plasticity of the human brain can be harnessed to learn new patterns of action, enabling movement with ease, grace and efficiency.
Tanya graduated from the first Australian Feldenkrais Professional Training Program in Sydney in 1990, going on to become an Assistant Trainer in 2000. She has always had a private practice, but has also worked part time in Pain and Stress Management Clinics, Rehabilitation and Aged Care. She has been a Physiotherapist since 1979.
Over the years Tanya has been asked to speak at conferences and for various interest groups. She has also run workshops on Feldenkrais for Physiotherapy students.
Tanya has been working in Brisbane's inner north western suburbs for the past 30 years, and has recently moved to new rooms which are wheelchair / stroller accessible. She enjoys working with clients of all ages to help them to learn to be the best they can be.
Some of the areas she works in include neurological and orthopaedic rehabilitation, chronic pain, poor balance, mobility difficulties, and better posture/acture (posture in action).
Tanya sees clients for private sessions by appointment on 07 3366 7970, and runs weekly classes on Mondays at 6.30pm and Thursdays at 1pm on Zoom. Bookings are necessary.
