I just want to let you know how much I appreciate the classes. I have not felt this much ease in a long time. I knew I was holding tension, but had no idea how to release it. Feldenkrais is so subtle but so powerful. I also appreciate your sense of humor, which is a nice plus.

about erin

Erin Ferguson, MA, GCFP, brings over seventeen years of advanced movement studies to her practice. If you feel trapped in painful, repetitive patterns, Erin can help find new perspectives, new inspiration, and new options. 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. 

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 habits bring ease, flow, and a generosity of being.

about dr. moshe feldenkrais

The Feldenkrais 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.

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

 

people are saying...

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!

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.
