Lynn Kenny studied English and French during her undergraduate years at Lafayette College and immediately went on to complete her Masters in the Teaching of English at Columbia University. After teaching for several years, she decided to take time off to have her four wonderful children. In 2004, her daughter, Nora Kate, was born with Down syndrome, and suddenly her life plan changed…and all for the better!
Lynn and her husband started Nora Kate off with the typical therapies, but soon found themselves seeking alternative therapies. It was then that Lynn found the Feldenkrais Method of Somatic Education. This Method helped her daughter so dramatically that she decided to join a training program to become a Guild-Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner™. This would allow her to continue to work with Nora Kate and help many other children as well.
Lynn studied for four years at the Feldenkrais Institute of New York under Trainer David Zemach-Bersin. Following her initial training, Lynn went on to train with Sheryl Field of The Field Center for Children’s Integrated Development in Manhattan, where she completed a two-year advanced training in Feldenkrais for Children. Upon completion of this program, Lynn worked at the Intensive Children’s Clinic at the Field Center for two consecutive years, giving Feldenkrais lessons to children with movement, learning, sensory, and behavioral issues. She continues to give Feldenkrais lessons to both children and adults at all of her locations.
Lynn has also taught Awareness Through Movement classes through the local public school continuing education program, and later added them to her other locations. She currently holds office hours at her studio in Bloomingburg, NY, at MaMA in Stone Ridge, at her Brooklyn office, and most recently at Waddle n Swaddle Wellness Center in Beacon, NY.
