Rancho Santa Fe resident’s Movement Studio combines free marathon of events with food drive

On Saturday, May 5, the public is invited to experience a free Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement® Lesson at North County’s largest Feldenkrais Studio. To celebrate National Feldenkrais Week, free lessons will be offered all day, every hour on-the-hour from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m.

The lessons, which use movement to introduce new patterns in the brain, are neither exercise nor therapy and anyone can participate. The lessons will be taught by certified practitioners who have completed a four-year professional training program. This is the second annual event to celebrate National Feldenkrais Week. Last year’s program presented internationally known Feldenkrais teachers and scores of attendees participated in novel movement lessons.

Anyone who brings a non-perishable food item to donate will receive a coupon for an additional lesson on another day. The food donations will be given to the San Diego Food Bank, to help reduce food insecurity and hunger in our communities. Last year’s event generated almost 200 pounds of food.

The free Feldenkrais Marathon will be held at A. Noone Feldenkrais Studio, at 811 Academy Dr. in Solana Beach. The studio is run by Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner® Anita Noone, who consults part time at the Scripps Chronic Pain Rehab Program in Encinitas and is on the editorial board of the Feldenkrais Journal. She also maintains a private practice and has worked with professional athletes and musicians, people with autoimmune and neurological disorders, and with many baby boomers who want to increase their physical and mental fitness.

Noone’s website is anoone.org and she also runs FeldenkraisTeachersInSanDiego.com, a website that showcases many of the more than 30 certified practitioners in San Diego County. Noone worked as an attorney for 23 years before retiring and beginning the Feldenkrais® training. She ran the civil division of the San Diego City Attorney’s Office for over 10 years, under three different City Attorneys. She has lived in Rancho Santa Fe for over 18 years.
