My mission is to help you move toward your highest functioning self. Twenty-two years ago, I started my private practice in New York City. Later, I moved to the UK and taught Feldenkrais in London. Now I’m in Boulder, Colorado, with my amazing service dog, Eppie. I love to read and I am continually learning about how we adapt and grow.

Moshe Feldenkrais

The Method was developed by physicist and Judo teacher Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais (1904-1984). 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.

The Feldenkrais method

The Feldenkrais Method® continues the education that was begun by every individual as a newborn infant by challenging the brain to relearn existing movement skills.

How did you lose those skills? Through long-term habits. As you develop habits, you often block yourself from doing things in the simplest and most efficient way.

Feldenkrais is based on principles of physics, neurology, and physiology, and the conditions under which the nervous system learns best.

Relearning to move with spontaneity, efficiency, and ease is the primary aim.


Genius, in truth, is nothing more than the faculty of perceiving in an unhabitual way.
— William James
