Meet Anita Noone
I love teaching the Feldenkrais Method in my studio in Solana Beach, California, and enjoy teaching all sorts of people. I have worked with active adults, seniors and teens, in an assisted living setting, and with people with disabilities. My experience includes working with professional athletes, equestrians, musicians, back pain sufferers, and people seeking stress relief.
Since May 2010, I have consulted each week for the Scripps Chronic Pain Rehabilitation program, which employs an integrative approach, including the Feldenkrais Method®, to address chronic pain. Medical doctors who specialize in rheumatology and pain management regularly refer their patients to me. I also volunteer to teach group Feldenkrais classes at the San Diego Cancer Center, in Encinitas, CA.
I completed the four year Feldenkrais® Training program and am a Guild Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner®. In June 2011, I was appointed to the Feldenkrais Journal Editorial Board. The Feldenkrais Journal publishes thoughtful and thought-provoking articles about the Feldenkrais Method®, as well as the relation of our work with other disciplines.
My early life was spent in Cheverly, Maryland, outside of Washington, DC, and I went to college at the University of Chicago. During college, I spent the hot and humid DC summers as an intern for the National Weather Service. During my time with the Weather Service, I researched what was the best climate in the United States and I moved to San Diego in 1979. I attended law school at the University of San Diego.
Now I live in Rancho Santa Fe, California with my family, including dogs and cats. I teach both Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement classes® and Functional Integration® lessons at my studio in Solana Beach.
I always enjoy meeting new clients and hearing about the work and hobbies that make them happy. My hobbies include gardening, running, swimming, kettlebell workouts, and biking, and I've worked as a lawyer, mother, weather forecaster, executive, and free-lance writer, so I can usually find some common ground. I believe that everyone has the ability and the right to improve his or her health - and life.
