Aarti was first introduced to the Feldenkrais Method after breaking her back in a serious tobogganing accident when she was a teenager. After experiencing first-hand its remarkable benefits in her own recovery, she became fascinated by the scientific and philosophical basis of Moshe’s Feldenkrais work. She trained for 4 years at the Institute for Studies in Somatic Education in San Francisco, studying under partitioners who had worked directly with Moshe Feldenkrais.
Her career has also included helping found an Arts and Sciences university, working in the environmental non-profit sector, and freelancing in writing and new media. Aarti draws often from her professional knowledge of education pedagogy when she teaches movement one-on-one or in groups. In addition to building a thriving private practice, Aarti recently returned to school to study science to deepen her knowledge of the human body.
