“In every action is the possibility to spark your imagination,
your intellect and the deep well within.”
What is the Feldenkrais Method®?
The Feldenkrais Method® is about learning about your self, your body, and “how” you move. Its usefulness is as varied as the desires and concerns of the people who come to it. Some people wish to improve their walking or running; others wish to reduce their low back pain. And yet for others, it is a doorway in discovering aspects of themselves. But with each person it will be a coming home – to the natural wisdoms of the body. The reward of awareness is a step towards learning and improvement.

Dear Feldenkrais Friends,
Feldenkrais is a method that can feel like a soft touch, bringing you a renewed sense of well-being. I hope you join me as we explore together the inward journey of movement and coming home to yourself.
We have class on Fridays @ 9am. I will send the class zoom link @ 8:45am just before the class. This gives you time to get situated in the Feldenkrais Zoom-Room and time to get down on the floor (or bed) and get all the supports like pillows or blankets.
You will want to find a quiet & warm place on the floor. And, from my healing Feldenkrais room to yours, we will carve out some simple movements that hopefully will bring you to a new Still Place With-in!
I look forward to that journey with you,
These sessions are available one-on-one or as a group
Where: Private practice in Sebastopol

Description: In Functional Integration, the practitioner/teacher develops a lesson for the student, custom-tailored to the unique configuration of that particular person, at that particular moment. The practitioner conveys the experience of comfort, pleasure, and ease of movement while the student learns how to reorganize his/her body and behavior in new and more effective manners.
Functional Integration is the work of Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais and is a hands-on form of tactile, kinesthetic communication. The Feldenkrais practitioner communicates to the student how he/she organizes his/her body and hints, through gentle touching and movement, how to move in more expanded functional motor patterns. Functional Integration is usually performed with the student lying on a table designed specifically for the work. It can also be done with the student in sitting or standing positions. At times, various props are used in an effort to support the person’s body configuration or to facilitate certain movements.
I take this calm and sensitive approach to movement education and learning into the rest of my life.
