This is where I give my full attention to your unique movement patterns.
Here’s how it works.

Most of us put a lot of effort into our daily lives. We work hard, play hard, and generally stretch ourselves to accomplish more and more. At the end of the day we think, ‘I must relax!’ and then we force ourselves to switch gears, which can take even more effort.

What if we could develop such sensitivity and understanding of ourselves that we could remain relaxed, aware, and graceful all day?

A sense of balance and centeredness would inform all our actions.

Private Functional Integration lessons teach this kind of aware sensitivity and understanding of your own movement. You will be comfortably clothed, usually lying or sitting on a low padded table.

Through precise, gentle touch I will support your skeleton as I work with your unique configuration and conditioning to release chronic tension. Together we will explore movements that can help you open more and more to your natural coordination, flexibility, and ease.

Because Functional Integration lessons provide new learning directly to the neuromuscular system, they are often used to:

  • recover freedom of movement after long-term muscular misuse or compensation

  • regain lost function after neurological injury

  • treat back, neck, shoulder, and knee pain

  • calm the system after trauma


I am an athlete and Zoe’s lessons give me relief from pain. She has an innate body awareness and a complete sensitivity to what I’m experiencing. This comes from her deep knowing, not a textbook.

Zoe is a joy to work with. She is positive, funny, calming, and creative. Feldenkrais sessions with Zoe have brought a new perspective on my body and its patterns. I feel fortunate to have discovered Zoe, and the many resources she offers in addition to individual sessions.

Ways to approach this process

20130504+Feldenkrais+for+web-168.jpg

Many of my clients—including me!—make Feldenkrais a lifelong practice to stay mobile, flexible, and resilient.

Some do it daily just to be able to walk. Others practice so they can keep playing guitar, continue cycling, riding horses, running, or getting onto the floor to play with grandkids.

I invite you to think of Feldenkrais as a training. Relearning to move is a path and a practice.

Like psychotherapy, martial arts, getting in shape, changing your diet, or any other pursuit that yields greater well-being and vitality, the time and investment you put in is linked to your results.

After the first consultation, we can decide how best to move forward. When we commit to working together, I can design a movement practice that fits your lifestyle and budget. It can be a combination of:

  1. Audio lessons for home - Deep sensing and listening to how you move

  2. Group classes & workshops - Experience the support of group practice

  3. Short tips and tricks during the day - Reset with simple check-ins

  4. Private lessons - Hands-on guidance to release painful patterns

For maximum benefit, I recommend committing to a regular Feldenkrais practice for at least three months, and ideally six months. I suggest devoting at least three hours a week to freeing up your movement. (Consider how long it took you to develop these habits!)

When you make a commitment to remapping your movement, you will see amazing changes.

I will be with you every step of the way because feeling successful in your movement again is worth it.
