Anne graduated as Feldenkrais practitioner with Elizabeth Beringer in August 2005.
Then she started working at home and abroad. Her own practice is close to the Rhine Falls in Switzerland.
She combines her hobby of traveling and interest for languages with her work thanks to numerous chances to take advanced trainings.
Her main focus for years has lain on pursuing mainly trainers of the first generation – direct students of Dr. Feldenkrais. She is grateful for the chances of having been able to study with Myriam Pfeffer, Mia Segal, Ruthy Alon, Chava Shelav, Yochanan Rywerant and Eli Wadler. She also worked in Feldenkrais trainings of E. Wadler, R. Alon and R. Bar and of course in E. Beringer's training in Biel.
In summer 2016 she became Feldenkrais Assistant Trainer.
These travels and trainings have inspired her to offer workshops since 2012 in beautiful places close to the sea or the mountains which have drawn other Feldenkrais practioners as well as those
new to the work.
With Alan creating each program new (fresh for those returning), offering joyful challenges.
