Guild Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Feldenkrais West LA
The Feldenkrais Method® is a system of learning and human improvement. You can improve the way you move, act, think and feel. You can improve the quality of your connection to the world around you. You can improve because you can learn.
Your current habits or ways of doing what you do are a result of learned strategies for interacting with both the external environment as well as your internal drives and desires. Over time some of those strategies can result in ways of moving and being that are painful or not fulfilling. You have the ability to learn new responses, to develop different strategies, to realize more satisfying possibilities in movement, acting and relationship.
Many of us have been taught that if we work hard, we will succeed. When our desire is to generate ease and pleasure in our lives, however, employing a strategy dominated by the dogma of "no pain, no gain" fails to get us where we want to be. In Feldenkrais Method Functional Integration® sessions and Awareness Through Movement® lessons we use movement to concretely explore our capacity for comfort, ease, flexibility and pleasure. We practice choosing movements and behaviors that feel good thereby developing strategies for being with ourselves and with others that are Self-realizing and fulfilling.
