Felicity was drawn to teaching human movement as a communicative form through extensive practices in yoga, somatics, massage and contemporary dance. She has taught yoga in New Zealand since 1990. To maintain ‘practice’ as the source of knowing the body, Felicity maintains yoga practice with Senior Iyengar teacher, Peter Thompson (Australia). She has taught yoga and somatics in many community studios and developed Anatomy & Physiology and Touch and Modification workshops for yoga teacher trainees.
Felicity is experienced in developing tertiary qualifications, bringing movement literacies to practice-based education. She is a founding member of Unitec SPASA and developed NZQA curricula for yoga, somatics and dance teaching on undergraduate dance programmes at Unitec and Universities of Auckland, Otago, Waikato and AUT.
Since 2000, she has worked at the Westmere clinic (BodyStill) practicing remedial massage and teaching yoga one-on-ones for clients’ postural and therapeutic needs, including yoga for Olympic cyclists. 2014-2020, Felicity embraced several key roles at Wellpark College of Natural Therapies - Massage & Yoga Programme Leader/Education Advisor/Academic Manager.
