A Method for Better Living in A Daunting New World


"Rather than 'fixing' the body, Moshe Feldenkrais taught how to expand its capacities and ranges of choice. 'I am going to be your last teacher. Not because I'll be the greatest teacher you may ever encounter, but because from me you will learn how to learn. When you learn how to learn, you will realize that there are no teachers, that there are only people learning and people learning how to facilitate learning. With those words Moshe Feldenkrais began his first North American training in June 1975. None of us were really prepared for this remarkable man or his method." ~Dennis Leri. This is one of my favorite concepts because once you learn how to learn from any experience, you are truly independent and free! ~Gabrielle

The Feldenkrais Method Relieves Emotional Conflict & Anxiety

"Pain, recurring emotions of frustration, obsessive behavior, failure in relations, psychosomatic symptoms, to name a few examples, are common manifestations of not getting what we want. The original reason, the context within which we produce the undesired result or cannot produce the desired result, can be amplified and studied. By comparison, the learning approach creates situations where the system can develop the required skills to move towards his or her intended result. When we progress in movement with a general sense of comfort, looking, and sensing, for pleasure and ease and harmony, our inner life does not 'bother' us. We feel less afraid or less concerned, less powerless. Our inner life reflects our harmony in doing, rather than reflecting our 'problems' in not doing." ~International Trainer Yvan Joly, from Quebec. You have to love a method that allows you to release confusing emotions without having to talk about it for hours, days, months or years! ~Gabrielle

An Instructor With 25 Years of Experience
Teaching People To Feel Better in Body, Mind & Spirit Since 1997
As a Feldenkrais Practitioner, the focus is on Somatic learning - learning with all that you are - so that people become independent learners. After I had been teaching Awareness Through Movement for some ten years or more, my daughter, who was at college at the time, died of a drug overdose. I was devastated. It took me seven years of self-inquiry to return to a state of being that was more alive than dead. It came about as a direct result of my training to find new responses, for choosing new options in the physical plane allows the mind to expand. It allows the soul to discover new options. In the realm of the psyche, it facilitates a new level of fulfillment and serenity.

As a part of that journey, I returned to do two years of advanced training in the Feldenkrais Method with Internationally known Trainer, Jeff Haller. This support was in addition to the four-year training that is the pre-requisite for becoming a Guild Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner (GCFP). This gave me even more tools for calming the mind, relieving the tension and dealing with the physical stress of living with grief for years. It also gave me a DIY system to approach life in a way that continues to facilitate improvement as we age, even as our mobility and wellbeing improve. The deeper the initiation into this practice, the more I was able to find my way back to living in a way that I never expected to find again. I was able to stop living the story of being broken. As I learned to frame the experience of my daughter’s death as a wakeup call, I discovered it was an opportunity for a deeper engagement with living. I was able to transcend trauma. I was able to discover a love, a trust, and a happiness that makes life richer than ever before.
