The Feldenkrais Method is an educational modality based on the principles of physics, martial arts, biomechanics, and an understanding of learning theory and human development.

In private lessons and group classes you can uncover the logical connection between your center of gravity and ease of movement.

  • Recover function after surgery or injury
  • Relieve stress
  • Let go of painful habits

After my spinal surgery at age 70 I thought that holding my back as stationery as possible was the best way the avoid pain. What an astonishing concept to realize that movement of the body was beneficial!! And Erin is a marvelous teacher; she proceeds at the pace you request and always explains the reason for what she is doing.
— Susan, Boulder, CO
I had years of pain and limitation from accidents and surgeries. This method, and Erin in particular, is so honoring of my body and how it has adapted. She is extremely gentle, and has empowered me with new strategies to increase movement. I am thrilled with how much I am able to participate in life now! Thank you, Erin!

The process of letting go of compulsive habits is a powerful way to connect with a truer, more honest sense of yourself. Old patterns can drift into the distance, new options bring ease, flow, and a generosity of being.
— Erin

Erin Ferguson, MA, GCFP, brings over twenty years of advanced movement studies to her practice. She also brings personal experience of seeking a wide range of help for her own lifelong chronic pain. People usually come to Erin with a chronic movement limitation or physical complaint after they have tried everything and feel desperate and in need of hope. If you feel trapped in painful, repetitive patterns, no matter what the cause, Erin can offer new perspectives and new options. Erin helps:

  • reduce inefficient movement
  • increase skeletal support
  • discover new functional possibilities

She then guides her clients to incorporate these possibilities into everyday life. Erin values non-judgmental acceptance of where you are in the moment. She will not correct you or fix you. Instead, she will work with you to uncover comfort and stability within your unique history. 


 

 

about dr. moshe feldenkrais

Movement is life. Life is a process. Improve the quality of the process and you improve life itself.
— Moshe Feldenkrais

The Feldenkrais Method® teaches—through sensing our own movement—how we can improve our capabilities to function in our daily lives, whether it’s lifting up a child, working at a computer, or training for the marathon. It helps us move more freely, carry less stress in our bodies, and stop doing things that cause us pain. 

The method was developed by physicist and Judo teacher Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais. It is based on principles of physics, martial arts, biomechanics, and theories of learning and human development.

Dr. Feldenkrais developed this innovative approach to movement re-education when he was incapacitated by a sports-related injury and given little chance of ever walking without pain. He applied his knowledge of anatomy, physiology, physics, and engineering, as well as his mastery of martial arts, to restore his own functioning and, later, the functioning of many others.
