Feldenkrais starts your whole life moving in new directions, with new choices on every level of your life. You must experience it. Feldenkrais has had a tremendous impact on my life. It has taught me to really listen to myself. I now know I need not stay stuck in pain. It has helped me see that I have choices, that my patterns of movement, my patterns of emotional "sludge" can change.

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.
