In private practice in Toronto since 1987, Olena works with people dealing with pain and neurological difficulties, as well as dancers, musicians, athletes, people with "poor posture" and those looking to enhance any aspect of professional or personal life which required improving or rehabilitating movements.
In addition to working in individual Functional Integration sessions, Olena leads workshops for movement professionals, for the public and for Feldenkrais practitioners in North America and Europe. She teaches in Professional Training Programs in Toronto, the U.S. and Europe.
Olena brings to the work her extensive background in anatomy, kinesiology, movement studies and dance. In the early 80's the Feldenkrais Method served as her means of recovery from back injury. From that start, she had continued to find the method invaluable as an ongoing transformational process.
