about

In each Awareness Through Movement® lesson the practitioner verbally guides you through a sequence of movements: sitting or lying on the floor, standing or sitting in a chair. Through directing your awareness to different sensory perceptions, you learn to abandon painful habitual patterns. With subtle movements, you develop awareness, flexibility, and coordination, as well as a sense of release. There is no stretching or ambition in these gentle, floor-based lessons. Wear loose clothing and bring your curiosity.

why does being curious help?

Simple: your nervous system doesn't learn if you are mean to it. 

Children learn to move by exploring their environment, but adults have forgotten how to be curious. We are not going to learn something new by telling ourselves to "sit up straight!", "quit hunching!", "pull your shoulders back!" or"hold your head up!"

Telling ourselves off never works. Did you know that just being curious can bring about a major change in your experience? It is through curiosity that we learn how to move with greater intelligence and less effort.

No experience necessary. You discover new possibilities for movement at your own pace. If you are a new student, please consider reading:

Foundations of Feldenkrais 
How to Learn
Erin's Feldenkrais Commitments


The Feldenkrais Method is the most extraordinary way of enhancing human abilities I have encountered. Skilled practitioners are able to effect remarkable improvement in a wide range of neuromuscular conditions from cerebral palsy, brain injury, and stroke to back, neck, and shoulder pain. Yet the Feldenkrais method is not a therapy, but rather activates a way of learning that involves the brain and the entire self.
— Dr. Walter Witryol, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine
