about fathom high
FATHOM HIGH, a Feldenkrais® based dance technique, uses neuroplasticity to create a fundamental change in the way we move. It unlocks new movement patterns, re-wiring the whole architecture of the movement, so we can change our habits from the core, and move beyond limitations.
It does so by entering a mindful state where learning is done with a sensation of constant child-like discovery, much in the same way that a baby discovers a movement for the first time.
My meeting with the Feldenkrais® Method changed my life in every possible way. After falling head over feet in love with the method, I decided to take time off from professional dancing for a year and dive into Feldenkrais. I left the dance company that I was in, packed a suitcase and traveled across Australia and India with an old tape recorder full of Feldenkrais classes. I practiced everywhere, day and night, searching for a concrete bridge between Feldenkrais and my dancing.
With time, FATHOM HIGH started to emerge. By the time the year finished, this research had deeply altered the way I moved and perceived my body.
Since then I've been developing FATHOM HIGH. Everything I do is always rooted in Feldenkrais & FATHOM HIGH: To create, to teach, to perform - they're all just different expressions of doing the same thing - sharing this subtle, rich, layered universe with others.
Feldenkrais taught me to reconnect with my body with such kindness, playfulness and child-like curiosity. This became my deep motivation in teaching, or my life’s purpose - to enable and support others through a similar process.
