There are myriad reasons that may have led you to the Center for Feldenkrais and Movement Arts, whether it is

chronic pain, interest in learning or improving a skill, struggles with anxiety, or general curiosity.

We welcome you no matter your interest!  

 

Due to the pandemic, I am offering in-person private Feldenkrais sessions outdoors, on my front porch,

Mondays and Thursdays. Contact me if you want to schedule an in-person session.

I will also continue offering private lessons and EFT sessions online! Schedule here

Please inquire if you are interested or have questions.

 

The Feldenkrais Method® offers potent possibilities for learning, improving how we function, increasing ease and comfort in our everyday lives, and reducing wear and tear of our tissues and joints.  

We all have habitual ways of moving, and we can develop inefficient habits if, for example, we try too hard when we are learning or are compensating for an injury. Even after recovering from an injury, unless we take the time to un-learn our new compensation patterns, we can maintain habits we no longer need – long after the original injury has healed. And these new habits often lead to other difficulties or pain.  

Practice is key to learning a new skill. And re-learning to sit, stand, walk, or improve any activity requires practice. The habits we have developed over the years have been practiced a long time! That way you tilt your head always a little to the right, or the way you tend to stand more easily on one leg, or when you sit cross-legged the left leg is always in the front… were practiced over and over and over again.  

Unless we take the time to pay attention and notice our deeply ingrained habits, and then offer new choices, we will continue with the patterns that may or may not suit us, and ultimately may be causing us pain.  

The most effective way to get the most out of this process of learning is to dive in and practice regularly. This process takes time and commitment. For anyone new to this practice, I recommend starting with the 3-month intensive program in order to get the most out of your investment and experience real progress.

Single sessions can also be very potent, and I am happy to work with you on a session-to-session basis.

EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) has great potential for helping us move beyond our pain and limiting beliefs, giving us more freedom to be spontaneously ourselves. Improvements may be noticed immediately, and continued work can provide lasting change. More information on EFT here.

**Feldenkrais® and EFT utilized together can offer potent and profound possibilities for change as we can address the relationships between any emotional and physical movement patterns in a more directed way. If you would like to work with both of these modalities in the same session(s), I highly encourage it!

I look forward to meeting with you to see if Feldenkrais® and/or EFT is the right fit for you.  

“In a perfectly matured body which has grown without great emotional disturbances, movements tend gradually to conform to the mechanical requirements of the surrounding world. The nervous system has evolved under the influence of these laws and is fitted to them. However, in our society we do, by the promise of great reward or intense punishment, so distort the even development of the system, that many acts become excluded or restricted. The result is that we have to provide special conditions for furthering adult maturation of arrested functions.” – Moshe Feldenkrais
