Private lessons are called Functional Integration®, or FI®, lessons in the Feldenkrais Method®. These are one-on-one lessons where gentle touch is used to explore and demonstrate movement possibilities. Feldenkrais®, by design, leverages the nervous system's innate ability to learn and gentle touch introduces and/or highlights kinesthetic awareness. As awareness increases, one can begin to recognize and release non-productive movement patterns resulting in increased comfort and ease of movement.
Feldenkrais® Practitioners are not medical professionals (unless they also have medical degrees) and do not treat or diagnose symptoms and conditions. The Feldenkrais Method® is a method of learning and practitioners teach how to learn and develop kinesthetic awareness thus finding more possibility in movement. As ability to move improves, symptoms often decrease or disappear as a result.

Wear comfortable clothing, read "Learn to Learn" by Moshe Feldenkrais for a fabulous introduction to the tenets of the method, and browse additional articles, videos, recent news, and more on the Resources page.
My workplace is scent-free! Please refrain from wearing scented products when coming for your lesson in consideration of those with sensitivities.
