Welcome!

I help people lead an active life by staying mobile and healthy.

Movement patterns affect every aspect of your life. Luckily, your brain's natural ability to form new patterns can change how you live.

If you feel stuck and desperate and want to move better, feel better, and reduce stress but can't figure out how, schedule an introductory lesson today.

Work with me to:

  • reduce pain and tension in daily life

  • increase balance and coordination

  • self-regulate and calm

  • walk, run, reach, bend, sit, and stand with ease and comfort

  • recover faster from injury and surgery

  • uncover new patterns with neurological challenges such as MS, CP, and stroke

  • improve creativity and problem-solving

Feel renewed hope when you discover easier, lighter, more balanced movement with less pain. Both private lessons and group classes are a good place to start.

What is Feldenkrais?

Feldenkrais.jpg

The Feldenkrais Method is a form of somatic education that uses gentle movement and directed attention to improve movement and enhance human functioning. The method focuses on expanding your innate potential for learning.

By bringing curiosity and attention to the way you move, you can increase ease and range of motion, improve flexibility and coordination, and rediscover your natural ability to move with grace and power.

Practicing Feldenkrais is a key component of a healthy life because it makes changes where it counts: in your brain.

Once you have an experiential understanding of easier, more functional movement, you waste less energy in compulsive, unnecessary contractions. This leads to better coordination and efficiency in everything you do. All Feldenkrais brings you:

  • high-quality functioning

  • improved health, healing, and well being

  • insight and inspiration

  • energy and ease

  • better breathing and upright posture


My approach

feldenkraiszoe.jpg

I have been immersed in human learning and sensorimotor development for over 23 years. I’ve developed a joyful, creative, non-judgmental teaching style focused on deep listening to you and your unique needs.

As a compassionate teacher who’s been through her own chronic pain, I know what it’s like when you’ve tried everything and nothing seems to work. I have a particular interest in working with people who have persistent or chronic pain issues, and with people who are struggling to feel comfortable in their body.

Instead of teaching you the correct way to sit, stand, hold yourself, lift your arm, or sit at a desk, I'll teach you how to learn to do anything so that when something new happens in life, you can adapt to it. I will show you how your nervous system regulates and calms using your innate ability to adapt and respond in new ways.

For many of my clients, the journey through pain and dysfunction has been a difficult one. So, the first step is to take the time to listen, not only to people's stories, but also to what they want in life, their goals and aspirations.

Inspired by easier movement, you can design a more satisfying life.
