GUILD CERTIFIED FELDENKRAIS PRACTITIONER(CM)

I am a Guild Certified Feldenkrais Teacher® offering group classes and individual sessions in Contra Costa & Alameda Counties in the East San Francisco Bay Area. I use the Feldenkrais Method of Somatic Education to help people of all ages learn to move beyond their habitual fright, flight, or freeze behaviors into greater freedom in order to act on their own other options.

  • I offer public Awareness Through Movement® classes in a variety of settings such as community, medical, and wellness centers. These series are effective, accessible and affordable. Regardless of your current ability or condition, this unique approach can help you overcome limitations brought on by stress, misuse, accident, or illness. Or perhaps you simply want to support your active lifestyle or improve your posture.

 

  • No prior experience is necessary, and the benefits can be both immediate and cumu­lative. Group teaching also takes me into private communities for seniors and a non-profit center supporting people living through different stages of cancer and their caregivers.

 

  • The group lessons consist of following gentle and enjoyable instructions often focusing on flexibility, balance and coordination. While you are lying or sitting on the floor, standing, or sitting in a chair, the teacher suggests variations and directs your attention to specific aspects of your own movement. An overly simplistic summary: this is a pain-free approach to retaining, regaining, and/or sustaining your ability to twist, turn, bend, and lengthen in comfort!
  • Individual lessons of Functional Integration® are customized to meet your specific individual needs. Learning new ways to move can be an crucial addition to the treatment of neurological, orthopedic, and chronic pain, as well as most stress-related conditions. Easier movement means greater comfort performing everyday activities at work or home, and greater skill in athletic and artistic pursuits. As you expand your awareness of how you think, sense, feel, and move, possibilities for personal improvement and human development multiply.

 

Designed to draw your attention towards how you move and how else - given the options - you might choose to move, the Awareness Through Movement® group classes and the Functional Integration® private lessons can compliment your wellness and fitness program and can be especially helpful for those recovering from recovery. 

 

A direct beneficiary of this systematic approach to cultivating wellness, I have learned how to help others "make the impossible, possible; the possible, easy; and the easy, elegant."
