You can experience Feldenkrais two ways:

Functional Integration®
In private lessons the practitioner guides your movement with gentle, hands-on touch. This brings the nervous system to a higher state of integration and increased function. The potential of a private lesson is profound and powerful in its effects. 

Awareness Through Movement®
In group classes you are verbally guided through sensory feedback as you perform gentle movements. As you attend to the quality of your action, you uncover greater ease, better self-understanding, and a more intelligent organization.

I used to hate movement. I was always in pain, with poor coordination and even worse posture. Through my long, frustrating search, I discovered the Feldenkrais Method®. It was the only thing that helped, and I began to understand that movement was a sensory process, even if I was unaware of it.

By training my awareness I learned to slow down and notice how I moved. This awareness created more choice in my nervous system. I was able to let go of long-held patterns. Muscular responses I thought were fixed began to shift. Using Dr. Feldenkrais's ingenious learning strategies, I retrained the habitual neuromuscular responses that kept me stuck in a cycle of pain and limitation.

Everyone can learn: This is because humans are naturally adaptable. Utilizing this inherent skill, the Feldenkrais Method guides you to sense how your whole self functions in every movement. You can learn to increase efficiency, comfort, and coordination, as well as improve your mental and emotional states. You can even relearn your whole life pattern.

You can benefit if you want to:

  • feel lightness, ease, and effortlessness in your movement
  • improve balance, flexibility, and coordination
  • recover faster from injury or surgery
  • find new strategies for a chronic limitation
  • better regulate your nervous system's response to stress
  • change underlying neuromuscular patterns that contribute to stress
  • feel less scattered and more expansive
  • rediscover your innate safety and support after a traumatic experience

Nothing is permanent about our behavior patterns except our belief that they are so.

About working with erin

Genius, in truth, is nothing more than the faculty of perceiving in an unhabitual way.
— William James
 
In my sessions with Erin I have achieved much more balance and ease of movement. I had years of pain and limitation from accidents and surgeries. Erin is extremely gentle and has empowered me with new strategies to increase movement. I am thrilled with how much I have recovered and how I am able to participate in life now!

I have been in several car accidents and I have only taken five classes with Erin and already my body is better functioning than before the accidents. Erin has helped me build a solid foundation for anything that involved balance and lengthening. I was amazed at how effortless it was, and after just one class I noticed immediate results.

Just want to let you know how much I appreciate the classes. My body has not felt this much ease in a long time. I knew I was holding a lot of tension in my ribs, shoulders and neck, but had no idea how to release it. Now it is going week by week. Feldenkrais is so subtle but so powerful. I also appreciate your sense of humor, which is a nice plus.

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.
