Winter 2022 News


I am so grateful to you, and to all my students for their support and friendship. Life has been quite an adventure and I am so happy that I had you to share it with. I hope that we will continue to be connected in 2022.
As some of you remember, we were already doing hybrid classes in February 2020 and so were ready to transition to all online when the world shut down in March 2022.  After an almost normal spring, summer and fall we seem to be back in the middle of our COVID life again with a slightly different twist.
Would you like to reconnect with your body? Be able to get back to walking in the park, exercise class, traveling? The Feldenkrais Method® classes can help you get back into an active vibrant life style. If you have never tried a Feldenkrais Method Awareness through Movement class, this is a perfect time. Get on your mat or on your bed, put your camera so that I can see you and join in. A perfect way to de-stress, relax and move.   
All Fit over Forty classes and private clients will remain online for Winter 2022. I am teaching Feldenkrais®, FITTForEver, Yoga and Tai Chi online for the Winter and seeing private clients online.  (I am aware that some of you would rather have in person classes.If you are interested in going into the Clarke Country Parks and Rec building and then participating in classes, please contact Shannon or me. )

Sign up for classes through the Clarke County Parks and Rec by the month or get a drop in pass from me. Which ever way works best for you.
I hope that you have been receiving and enjoying my other newsletter - Fit Over Forty Fitness Newsletter. It has many exercise tips and a nice recede each month and news from me.
I miss everyone so much, and hope to see some of you soon. It is great to see some of you on Zoom and have our little before and after class chats.
Do take care. 

Big virtual hugs
