Private Feldenkrais Sessions :
Private Functional Integration Sessions for Adults, Infants and Children
A private Feldenkrais session looks “somewhere between a private Pilates session and a massage.” NY Times
All of us are creatures of habit — we have familiar ways to sit stand and move. These habits can feel almost hard-wired into our systems, but they were actually learned over time. This is important because learned behaviors can be changed and improved upon. When we have no pain, we may not even notice how we move, but when we’re overworked at our desk, carrying heavy bags or caring for a baby, it may become apparent that the way we move isn’t working as well as it could.
Feldenkrais Method combines an understanding of body mechanics with a highly effective approach to learning how to improve upon our deep-rooted habits of posture and movement. Chronic pain in the neck, shoulders, back, hip, knees, etc. can disappear when we address the habits of movement that caused them in the first place. This gentle but powerful approach to improving functioning through body-awareness versus treating symptoms is also helpful for those with neurological conditions, anxiety, trauma, or stress, as well as musicians, dancers, yogis and athletes looking to improve their performance.
Whether you want to address chronic pain or a neurological condition, improve your fitness routine, avoid injury in exercising, improve coordination and grace in working, dancing, interacting with your baby, or performing a favorite pastime, Feldenkrais lessons can improve your day to day life and overall well being.
“For a year or more, I stopped walking because my feet were hurting. At a doctor’s advice, I tried wearing special inserts in my shoes, but they threw off my balance. Eventually I learned from…a Feldenkrais practitioner…that bad posture was putting a lot of strain on my feet. It’s amazing what you can learn when you step outside the realm of people who are selling you something and into the realm of people who treat the body, not the symptom.” Neil Young in “Waging Heavy Peace”
