I find it to be much more useful than standard physical therapy. I also believe that the Feldenkrais Method can help older people achieve greater range of motion and flexibility, and help all of us feel more comfortable in our bodies.

Classes & Workshops

Experience the many benefits of Feldenkrais® exercises (also called Awareness Through Movement®) in classes and workshops.

For information about upcoming workshops and other events, please scroll down!

CLASSES

imageEach class features a different Feldenkrais exercise or “lesson,” and involves making gentle movements, slowly with minimal effort, while paying attention to your own sensations and experience. The teacher guides the class verbally, and each person is encouraged to go at their own pace. The movements in a Feldenkrais class are relaxing and non-stressful. Mats are provided for your convenience. NOTE: Late-arrivals are not permitted, so please come a few minutes early.

WORKSHOPS

I believe Marek Wyszynski's extraordinary (and usually unspoken) fluency in anatomy and physiology facilitate his lucid teaching of self awareness, self-correction and efficiency of movement — the Feldenkrais technique.
