Improve Movement, Improve Life

Feldenkrais Movement with Ernie Adams

The Feldenkrais Method® was developed by the renowned movement educator, Judo master, author and physicist, Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais. His work has been used worldwide for over 60-years to improve recovery from physical and neurological injuries, increase learning ability, and enhance athletic performance. Feldenkrais’ mastery of Judo gave him a deep understanding of how to move powerfully and gracefully, while maintaining balance and presence. He combined this understanding with keen observations of the developmental process infants go through in order to learn how to control their movements, stand and walk. How we learn, how we can change, and how we can develop our potential, is the essence of his work.

“The aim [of the Feldenkrais Method] is a person that is organized to move with minimum effort and maximum efficiency, not through muscular strength, but through increased consciousness of how movement works.”-Moshe Feldenkrais, PhD

Feldenkrais sessions can help you become more flexible, balance better, walk easier, and reduce chronic pain, as well as producing a feeling of calm and self harmony. Private Feldenkrais sessions usually combines hands-on support and guidance with movement lessons tailored to your specific needs. Enhancing you kinesthetic  awareness, your ability to feel or sense how you use your body, is an important part of the session. This ‘awareness’ creates inner body knowledge that helps you recognize how you may be limiting your potential, and becomes a stepping stone towards learning healthier, more functional, and more graceful alternatives.
