is tailored, hands-on, guided movement specific to your needs. Erin will help you sense new movement patterns as you feel supported, heard, and inspired. She also offers audio lessons to do at home to support you even more.
Erin works with people who have injury, pain, movement limitations, and neurological difficulties as well as dancers, musicians, athletes, educators, and people with "poor posture" who are looking to enhance their lives through easier movement. She also brings a personal experience of seeking a wide range of help for her own lifelong chronic pain.
The gift of this method is that it allows you to connect with your thoughts, feelings, and sensations while moving. The nervous system is then given the precious opportunity to process the constant stimuli from the outside world in a different way.
People usually first come to Erin with a chronic movement limitation or physical complaint. Often it's after they have tried everything and feel desperate and in need of hope. Erin can help you discover the relief of skeletal support and more function in everyday life while meeting you where you are at with a compassionate, non-judgmental approach.

about dr. moshe feldenkrais
Dr. Feldenkrais is a physicist and Judo teacher. He received his PhD from the Sorbonne and worked in the Joliot-Curie laboratory in Paris. He also spent many decades studying Judo, training with its founder, Kanō Jigorō.
He discovered how to reeducate his own movement when he was incapacitated by a sports-related injury and given little chance of ever walking without pain.
He developed his way of teaching an intelligent relationship to gravity using principles of human learning, physics, and martial arts. He ingeniously focused on directed attention and novel movement patterns to restore faulty muscular learning.
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, including luminaries like David Ben-Gurion, Yehudi Menuhin, Peter Brooks, Gregory Bateson, Jonas Salk, and more.
Using sensorimotor discriminations, everyone can improve function, not just in movement, but also in how we feel, sense, think, and act. When we move better, we feel better. We balance, digest, breathe, and smile better.
