Rather than a theory of how humankind can improve, the Feldenkrais Method is a simple, practical process for intrinsic learning and motivation. It is based directly on scientific method: the process of creating an experiment with constraints and then observing the results. The medium is movement because the feedback is immediate. The result of learning this is exponential. Feldenkrais is named after the founder of the Method, Moshe Feldenkrais, who brought us this amazing way to apply the principles of physics to use gravity to stabilize balance and access less wear and tear on the joints. It cultivates extreme sensitivity to distinctions enriching enjoyment of life AND spontaneity.
Awareness Through Movement is the class format which allows for inexpensive access to the masses.
Functional Integration is the private session format which is a one-on-one with a highly trained practitioner who embodies the work and can jump-start your progress.
Gabrielle is incredibly knowledgeable. She is helping me through my grief process. By becoming aware of how my thoughts and emotions are affecting my body, I am much more mindful of moving in healthy, safe ways.
I've been telling everyone I know with back pain about the lessons I've taken from Gabrielle and what I've learned from her. I sure do recommend her! I have very serious scoliosis and the relief I have found is an improvement I have longed for. The clearing of old emotional baggage is huge.
After I started working with Gabrielle I found that the peace I long was creeping into my life in unexpected ways. I experience calm in frustrating situations. My reactions to situations are way different. I can see other ways of viewing things. I don’t work at this-I don’t do anything. I merely attend the meditations or listen to the audio files at home!
I don't know how it all works, but Gabrielle has given me some great medicine, in the form of her instruction, that has given me hope for managing my pain. That means a lot to me. She has given me a way to respond to aging that makes me feel it's not an inevitable decline in mobility and mental acuity.
