Integrating the power of the MIND
with the potential of the BODY...
If you are looking to journey towards Health and Wholeness, you have come to the right place. With The Feldenkrais Method®, you learn to invite more EASE, and WELLNESS into your life.
As it uses movement with attention, Feldenkrais® is a powerful tool to integrate Mind and Body towards a better functioning self.
In developing your capacity to attend to what you do, you can learn to better coordinate intention and action.

Guild Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner®
I provide a gentle and knowing guidance to help you release habitual patterns of tension, allowing new, more efficient options to arise. You gain the capacity to eliminate pain and organize yourself in more pleasurable ways.
I cannot convey enough how much I value the work that you do with Feldenkrais. I find it the most refined and grounding work that I have ever experienced - it is elegant, subtle and profound".

It is about LEARNING
Rather than "fixing" the body, my focus is how to expand its capacities and range of choice. This method is not a medical treatment, it is an educational approach. Along with increasing awareness and improving coordination and flexibility, it changes unwanted habit patterns that cause pain and limit movement.
This work has a wide range of applications:
-- REHABILITATION: People with stroke or neurological conditions learn to move more pleasurably and with more ease.
-- HEALTH: If you suffer from backaches or muscle and joints pain, you learn more effective ways to move, reducing the extra effort involved and eliminating your pain and discomfort .
--PERFORMANCE: Performing artists learn to "fine tune "their bodies for more optimal performance.
"...from the impossible to the possible,
from the possible to the easy,
from the easy to the elegant."
-Awareness Through Movement: group classes
In an Awareness Through Movement class, I verbally lead you through a sequence of gentle movements. These precisely structured movement explorations help you gain greater self-awareness and more options for effortless actions.
"We learn from what we attend to,
and we become what we practice".
- Moshe Feldenkrais
- Functional Integration: individual sessions
In a private lesson of Functional Integration, I use a gentle supportive touch to guide you in a personalized movement process while you learn to reorganize your body in new and improved patterns.
"Nothing is permanent in our behavior patterns,
except the belief that they are so".
