Dorothy Henning, Guild Certified Feldenkrais® Practitioner. completed her training in Switzerland and opened her practice in the Feldenkrais Method® of Somatic Education in Strasbourg, France in 2004.  She returned to her home town, Louisville, Kentucky in 2013, and founded Integrative Movement LLC.  While in France, Dorothy completed a French National diploma in Sports Education with a specialty in Aquatics in Strasbourg, France.  She worked with high level national athletes as well as collaborated with the Ludica Center for traumatic brain injury and stroke victims in Strasbourg working to aid in their functional recovery.  Dorothy served on the board of the French guild Feldenkrais-France, and also represented Feldenkrais-France on the board of the EuroTAB Council of Feldenkrais, jointly steering a project to develop an assessment tool for the international Feldenkrais community.  Dorothy returns to Europe regularly to present workshops and to see clients there.

Having always loved dance and movement and the avenue for self-discovery and connection that this brings to the human experience, Dorothy danced in San Francisco and Strasbourg for small dance companies. Dorothy has also always had a love for the water, from swimming across the Golden Gate in San Francisco at 24 years old to teaching, coaching, water exercise and all things aquatic. She currently keeps one foot in the water by teaching in the therapy pool at Baptist East/Milestone Fitness Center. The merging of Feldenkrais and water is a holistic blend that helps her bring awareness, mindfulness and movement possibilities to more people. She includes Tai Chi for the water in her class at Milestone, helping participants discover a centered meditative calm in this marriage of east and west philosophies.

Dorothy began her career in health, wellness and learning 25 years ago in San Francisco while managing at a YMCA. It was during this time that Dorothy discovered Feldenkrais. A shoulder injury from a much earlier accident reappeared more intensely than before and she turned to Feldenkrais when everything she tried didn’t seem to help her find the way to heal. Dorothy was so impressed with the hope and healing that she discovered, and the changes this learning was sowing in every aspect of her life and point of view, that she committed to learning this work and becoming a Feldenkrais practitioner. Dorothy’s healing from her own injury inspires her Feldenkrais work.

The collaboration with Norton Neuroscience Institute affords her the opportunity to bring Feldenkrais to those with movement disorders such as MS, Parkinson’s Disease, post-stroke, neuropathy and others. She holds this opportunity and the students she meets there very dear to her heart.

Dorothy is grateful for this opportunity to know all her students and clients, as she is always learning from them. She is fortunate to be able to share her passion and her life work with such a vibrant community of people.

Dorothy is also certified as a  Havening Techniques® Facilitator. Havening Techniques is a rapid and effective treatment based in neuroscience that uses touch, attention and imagination to trigger electrochemical changes in the brain that alter how memories are processed and helps increase resilience. Havening Techniques complements Feldenkrais with it’s parallel foundations in neuroscience.

Dorothy continues to explore neuroplasticity and the implications this has on learning, especially after injury and illness.  Bringing together learning, movement, mindfulness and a passion for helping others discover hope and the potential for a better life through connection to themselves, to others and to the world around them, inspires her work and her life.
