Tilt Your Kettle

This workshop takes the simple movement of tilting your pelvis (such as in the well known Cat/Cow yoga sequence) and puts it under the microscope — your own internal microscope actually. By spotlighting the movements of the pelvis in many different contexts, we will clarify our awareness of  individual asymmetries, and discover foundational habits of movement.

Next, we zoom our microscope lens out for a global view — looking at how these habits of movement which have remained unnoticed, influence abilities and limitations throughout your body.

6 Wednesdays.  430pm-530pm Eastern Time

* Wondering about the kettle? It turns out almost no one, including google(!) is familiar with this expression which I’ve heard my cousin say for years (on his way to the bathroom!).

The Roots of Resilience​

“…health is the capability of regaining balance and standing poised again on one’s feet.” Moshe Feldenkrais

brooklyn feldenkrais

When you explore the movement lessons of the Feldenkrais Method, you will find that the mind-body connection helps you to gain a sense of safety and ease in challenging times. As your posture and movement become more refined, your experience of bodily sensations can begin to shift from amplifying difficult emotions to a valuable resource to tap into in difficult times.  

Join Feldenkrais practitioner Dan Rindler for this exploration of the intersection of body and mind. This series can be valuable as a stand-alone experience or in conjunction with psychotherapy, somatic experiencing, or other approaches. Oriented towards students who struggle with anxiety or trauma, open to all.

“After a few sessions I began to feel like I was far more present in my body which meant I could feel my feet and so also felt more grounded. Both of these things helped to ease my anxiety which was quite high before the course.”

Your Roots

The way your feet connect to the ground influences everything that happens above. As you learn to make a physical shift in your connection to the ground, you’ll access and refine your ability to feel more grounded, self-supported and capable in the face of challenging moments in your daily life.

Breathe + Walk Tall

With every step and each breath we have a new opportunity to access the inner resources to lengthen our spine and to rise to our full height – supported and balanced with a quality of internal support which can help you carry yourself through difficult times.

The Moving Center

We are in constant motion, as are the circumstances of our lives: as much as we’d like to “stay centered” there is no center or balanced point that we ever simply find and keep. Refine your ability to find balance and counterbalance around a continually moving center as an entryway into feeling more balanced in the face of challenging emotions.

Transcending Your Story + Stepping Into Who You are Meant to Be

Using Mind-Body explorations to Transform Pervasive Patterns

A workshop with Stacey Klein, LCSW and Dan Rindler, GCFP

Movement, emotions and beliefs are intimately intertwined. Our simplest gestures and habits of movement  –  how we sit, move, stand,  reach out or hold back – reflect our deepest beliefs about our selves and our relationships with others. Because these patterns have become so fixed and repetitive, we can feel frustrated about our potential for rewiring and change, but the good news is that what was once learned can be unlearned.  Practices involving slowing down and paying mindful attention to our unfolding moment to moment experiences and choices are one of the most effective ways we can transform these limiting beliefs and their corresponding expression in our bodies.

Join Feldenkrais practitioner Dan Rindler and Somatic psychotherapist Stacey Klein, in this innovative exploration of the intersection of movement, emotion and relationship.  You will learn powerful mind body awareness explorations and exercises which illuminate the connection between your unconscious movement patterns, your beliefs and emotions. These practices will help you discover new options for more meaningful and renewed living in your relationship with yourself and your world.

Note – The workshop date has been moved to March 18.
This workshop is open to all.  No prior movement experience is necessary.
Where: At Moving Body Resources, 112, West 27th Street, #400. New York, NY 10001
When:  Sunday March 18, 2018, 1:00pm – 5:00pm

Moving Off the Mat

Explore the possibilities of learning about posture and movement using a deceptively simple asana: bridge pose, as a jumping off point for profound learning through movement.  Learn to refine your posture, balance and coordination in sitting, standing, walking, and running. Take the learning both into your yoga practice and out to your life.  Join Dan Rindler, Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner for this unique perspective on taking yoga poses into functional movement.  What will you do with the new possibilities?

Workshop: Transforming Our Shadow Parts Into Light

A Relational Mindfulness Workshop

Join somatic practitioners Stacey Klein LCSW and Dan Rindler GCFP, for this special experiential workshop on how to identify and transform your “shadow” parts into places of power. Our shadow parts, as coined by psychoanalyst C.G Jung, are the aspects of ourselves we had to suppress or were discouraged from knowing and expressing due to family and cultural messages. In order to feel whole and in touch with our deepest truths, we need to reclaim these unknown and stuck places because they are the key to our gifts and our greatest transformation.

Movement is a very powerful way to access our shadow. Using mindfulness practices, designed to slow us down and tune us into our bodies and movement patterns in relationship to one another, accelerates our ability to identify what we tend to miss in our busy daily lives. We will use gentle movement exercises to illuminate the connection between our beliefs, feelings and movement patterns and specifically, how these connections manifest in our relationships with others. You will learn how exploring and transforming your habitual patterns of movement changes your experience of yourself in the world and integrates you physically, emotionally and spiritually.

This workshop is open to all. No prior movement experience is necessary.

“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.” C.G. Jung

Take Root and Branch Out!

A workshop with Dan Rindler, Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner
Sunday October 1, 230pm-4:00pm
Shambhala Yoga and Dance Studio, 367 St Marks Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11238

The organization of your feet and legs for support is a major factor in determining your ability to move with efficiency, ease and power.  Learn guided movement exercises which explore moving in and out of unusual variations of bridge and wheel poses, to refine our ability to access support and strength from the ground up.  The principles explored can help you fine-tune your movement on and off the mat.  This workshop is open to all abilities including those with injuries or other limitations. What will you do with the new possibilities?


For those new to Feldenkrais:  You can do this!  The seemingly simple, slow mindful exercises of Feldenkrais method are accessible to all, including those in chronic pain.  The “exercises” are not exercise in the traditional sense.  Rather, they are unique explorations, almost movement-puzzles, which combine an understanding of body mechanics with a highly effective approach to learning to shift out of long-held habits of movement and behavior. This gentle approach will lead you to learn new patterns of coordination, improved posture, balance, and reduced strain whether you are athletic or feel unable to take most movement classes.

Manhattan Classes

Our Manhattan classes are held in private homes and we’re eager to add more classes to our schedule!  (For current class schedule, see the Registration page)

Details about hosting a class are below.  

Bring Child’Space to your neighborhood!

  • Offer your apartment or a common room in your building for a Child’Space class.
  • Spread the word to friends – help us find at least four other parents and you’ll take the class for free!
  • Available for Brooklyn and Manhattan. Click to email if you’d like to host a class.

The Fine Print: Please live in a smoke-free home, with enough floor space for 8 parents (including you) to sit comfortably with their babies on receiving blankets in front of them.  A completely clear 10′ x 12 ‘area is about the smallest floor space that can work, a little larger is  better. If you’d like to host a crawlers class, we prefer a building common-room unless you have a very empty room in your home, as there are usually too many distractions and obstacles for a group of crawling babies in one’s home.

Pre-Crawlers I

Tummy-Time Solutions, Rolling, Reaching and More

Child’Space Method class for the youngest pre-crawling babies from 5 weeks up to 5 months. In this gentle, joyful class, parents learn to support their baby’s development through touch and movement. After experiencing new movement patterns, babies find a wider range of movement than they might discover on their own, and become more comfortable in many positions and improve movement including tummy-time and rolling over. Parents learn answers to their questions about their baby’s development and also notice other positive changes in their babies after learning Child’Space Method, such as reduction of “colic”, improved ability to self-soothe, and improvements with feeding.
