Choose the Way You Move!
THE FELDENKRAIS METHOD
Everyone has unique movement habits. These develop over the years due to a host of variables, such as where you grew up, when you crawled, whether you were a basketball player or ballerina or once fell out of a tree.
Moving with the same biases throughout a lifetime causes stress on particular muscles and joints. People who rely on their bodies professionally, like dancers, athletes and musicians, tend to feel these stresses earlier. But we all confront these limitations as we age.
Feldenkrais lessons are internationally recognized and evidence-based gentle movement sequences that are carefully designed to make you more aware of how you move.
With this new awareness and understanding, you can evaluate your habits and compare them to other options.
Choosing the way you move not only alleviates pain and reduces stress, but an expanded movement repertoire almost always improves your view of who you are and what you are capable of.
Feldenkrais®, Feldenkrais Method®, Awareness Through Movement® and Functional Integration®
are registered service marks of the Feldenkrais Guild® of North America.

"What I am after isn't flexible bodies, but flexible brains. What I am after is restoring human dignity."
We are not trying to "fix" anything. There is no ideal body out there. We are born with a particular skeleton, muscles and nervous system that is limited by our past and our physical habits. Through Feldenkrais lessons, you are invited to explore an easier, more joyful and efficient way to inhabit your own skin
