Peggy Protz, Feldenkrais® Practitioner
Peggy has studied and taught a wide range of movement and exercise techniques. She holds a BFA in dance, was a Pilates instructor for 15 years, trained in yoga and massage, and has been a Guild Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner since 2001. Other techniques and approaches that have influenced her include the Alexander Technique, contact improvisation, free-form ecstatic dance, and daily spiritual and meditation practices. Using the Feldenkrais Method, in addition to aspects of dance, pilates, and other modalities, Peggy helps people discover more pain free and comfortable ways of being in their body.
“I began Peggy's class last fall and with each class I became more and more pleased by how much easier my body moved than before. It's hard to remember when I have felt the ease of movement or the depth of stress relief that I receive from Peggy's Feldenkrais classes. Peggy has a great sense of humor and is fun and focused at the same time. I have practiced yoga for a number of years and Feldenkrais enhances and complements my yoga practice.” -A.B

Sharyse Tacy, M.Ed: Guidance & Counseling, Lu Jong I Teacher
As a lifelong dancer and a ten-year yogini, Sharyse has a love for using her body as a vehicle for bliss. After spiritual experiences in India and Nepal, she sought to more deeply integrate body, breath, and mind into her daily ritual. This search has led her to Tantrayana, including Lu Jong. Tantra has revealed a Path that weaves together Sharyse's passions of movement and helping others. It is her wish to offer a space for internal reflection and healing through regular Lu Jong practice for all who may be drawn to it. This meditative movement is easily accessible to most ages and abilities! For more info or to contact Sharyse, or visit www.temperancetemple.com or www.lujong.org.
