I am looking forward to meeting you in Portland!
One of things our students appreciate most about the variety of their TTouch Instructors is that each brings a slightly different perspective to the work. Thirty years ago, after having spent ten years working with TTouch and becoming intrigued by what I was learning about its roots in the Feldenkrais Method®, I began my Feldenkrais training. During that training I was struck by how brilliantly Linda had taken many of the Feldenkrais principles and made them easily accessible for people working with animals. The methods belong together and I continue to explore the circle that connects them. There's always more to learn!
As is usual, our class will have participants with a mixture of experience. What has always excited me about the work is that, regardless of one's experience, an understanding of the principles and some basic skills can help you find solutions to many issues. Experienced students refine and add to their techniques, and newcomers to TTouch go away from a training thinking, 'Hey! I can do this!'.
One of my passions is helping to make it all make sense. I enjoy finding a framework to support the learning and experiences of new students, and experienced students tell me this framework allows them to see how all they have learned fits together - the principles and practice. Some of you might be interested in an article called '
There's Method in the Magic.
' I hope you'll enjoy it, and I look forward to sharing more practical aspects of it during our time together in Portland.
All the best,"
