I believe that graceful, coordinated movement is one of the most pleasurable things in life. I have a passion for teaching students how to move more easily and comfortably, expanding their options in life and living more fully.
The Feldenkrais method is very easy, slow and gentle, posing no stress or strain to the student. It is learning, not forcing or straining the body to change. It is often sought out by those who have movement dysfunction and pain, and is also popular with athletes, dancers and musicians who regularly challenge their bodies with repetitive action.

“The Feldenkrais Method is the most sophisticated and effective method I have seen for the prevention and reversal of deterioration and function.” -Margaret Mead, Ph.D., Anthropologist
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Feldenkrais method uses many strategies to teach students to listen to what their bodies' are telling them. Predicated on the idea that the central nervous system plays an enormous role in a person's comfort, the method encourages awareness of one'self.
FELDENKRAIS: WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
The Feldenkrais method has two components. Students may use one or both.
In Awareness Through Movement (ATM) classes, which are taught to groups in a classroom, students explore basic movement themes to improve quality, awareness and function. The themes utilize ordinary body positions, such as lying on the back, stomach, side or sitting. In a typical 1 hour-long ATM lesson, the class will focus on one movement theme, guided verbally by the instructor.
Individual Feldenkrais Method sessions are called Functional Integration (FI). It is one-on-one learning process tailored to meet a students individual needs, generally lasting about 45 minutes. The student remains comfortably clothed and frequently lies on a padded table. The instructor uses slow, gentle touch and sometimes verbal suggestions to direct your attention to habits in moving, feeling, sensing and acting that prevent the student from feeling and moving as well as possible.
