Thanks to Dance Magazine for featuring Rosy Simas!

Creating is a spiritual act for me, rooted in natu­re, formed through my link to the ances­­tors and the land of which we are made. I weave cultural concepts with scientific and philosophical theories. My work unites themes of personal and collective identity with family, matriarchy, sovereignty, equality and healing that centers the voices of those who are Native, Indigenous, Black and People of Color.

Welcome to the Kelowna Feldenkrais® Teacher Training Program

We’re happy to welcome the Kelowna Feldenkrais Teacher Training Program as our newest client! If you’ve ever been curious about the Feldenkrais Method, check out their new training beginning March 2021.

“Life is a learning journey for us all—a process of finding what we do well and how we can build on that, challenging our assumptions and exploring new options and possibilities, as well as deeply exploring how we ‘get in the way’ of our learning… The Feldenkrais Method explores these questions through the medium of attending to our movement… We bring curiosity to the fore, and explore how we act in the world, on the world, and respond to the world we live in…deeply investigating one of the main premises of Moshe Feldenkrais’ teaching: ‘If you know what you are doing you can do what you want.'”

Happy Anniversary

Today we’re celebrating the seventh anniversary of working with client Jeff Haller / Inside Moves! It’s been an absolute pleasure to strategize, produce and spread the word about his offerings as one of the top Feldenkrais Trainers in the world. We look forward to many more years together!
