What we’re about
Movement and Creativity are vital to our lives. When we direct our focus to deepening connections to ourselves, each other and life itself, our experience of life becomes fertile, rich, vibrant.
Movement: classes, workshops, experiments, performances, curiosity, discovery.
Creativity: art, music, process, creation, discussion, experiencing, learning.
The body is the physical aspect of the personality and movement is the personality made visible.- Mary Starks Whitehouse

There are so many invisible rules we follow, often unbeknownst to us.
This was one of Moshe Feldenkrais’s stated aims of the Feldenkrais Method®, and one that is so dear to my heart as a teacher and student. There are so many invisible rules we follow, often unbeknownst to us.
Whether it’s an instruction your father gave you in childhood about sitting up straight, or someone scolding you about holding your knees together as an expression of modesty, or a yoga teacher’s advice to pull your shoulders in a certain way they thought was “right” once upon a time – often we are walking around carrying loads of conscious or unconscious instructions about how to be in a human body.
I believe in liberating us from these.
The practice of Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement® offers a profound invitation into a radically new and non-objectified relationship with your own body-mind. It’s not only good for you, but good for the world at large.
WHO THIS IS FOR:
For people new to Feldenkrais who want an experiential understanding of the potential breadth and depth of this approach.
For experienced students of Feldenkrais, including professional Feldenkrais teachers, who are curious about fresh ways to understand the profound impacts of this method.
For anyone who is curious about embodied learning, mindfulness, sustainability, movement, and liberation.
“Improvement of specific movements in the process of learning becomes merely a bonus, the real gain being that your life takes on a new, positive direction. This means that with the passing of each day and each year you are able to perform every act in an increasingly better way – more efficiently, more wisely, more precisely, and economically – provided that you have not relinquished your determination to seek these qualities.” - Ruthy Alon
