You learn to use the feedback from your movement to improve what you do.

You develop awareness of what you’re actually doing, rather than putting your attention on what you want to do.

A wide range of people comes to these classes

from those working with a specific difficulty, like a shoulder problem, or back pain, to those wishing to improve their performance in a number of fields, from walking better to dancing or acting.  

Ages vary – from eleven to over eighty years old (not in every class!) but generally adults.

Everyone is welcome

We usually work lying on the floor – so being able to get down and back up is a starting point. Generally, if you can lie on the floor to work, the class will be suitable for you.

If that’s a problem, individual Functional Integration lessons may help.

This page shows details of all weekly classes and the monthly two-hour mini-workshops.

You can book online here for all these classes – or click the booking button for a specific class on its listing below.

For weekend workshops see here, and for longer intensive courses see the holiday workshops page.

I am now teaching a weekly live in-person class in Bristol, and a monthly live two-hour workshop in Bath.

Tips for Zoom Classes

You’ll need a clear floor space with enough room to lie with your arms out to the sides or above your head. (For the half-hour sitting class you’ll need a hard chair.)

Please wear comfortable clothes that are easy to move in.

Dress for warmth.

Keep pets and children out of the room if you can – they’ll want to come and lie on you!

Once you’ve logged in and you’re in the class, position your computer or phone so that I can see you working. If you prefer to work with your camera off, that’s fine. This may help if your broadband is not good.

If you're a beginner...

it’s good to let me know you’re coming.

Before you come, please discuss with me any special requirements or concerns you may have.

It’s always an option to try one class to see what it’s like.

Please click on the long link, then use the Meeting ID and password if prompted.

“This organic learning is slow, and unconcerned with any judgment as to achievement of good or bad results. It has no obvious purpose or goal. It is guided only by the sensation of satisfaction when each attempt feels less awkward as the result of avoiding a former minor error which felt unpleasant or difficult...”

Moshe Feldenkrais in "The Elusive Obvious"

This is how it’s done!

One of the roots of Feldenkrais is the developmental work we did as children – otherwise known as play.
