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. There are also sitting/standing classes available on Zoom this term.

 

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

 

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

 

The ten-week term of weekly live classes in Bristol begins on 11 January. Weekly Zoom classes start on 9 and 11 January.

Weekly classes and monthly 2-hour workshops (live and on Zoom) are shown below.

Scroll down to browse and book.

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

I am also offering three weekly online (Zoom) classes, and a monthly online two-hour workshop.

One of the weekly classes is a half-hour sitting/standing class.

If you miss a class you’ve paid for, you’re welcome to catch up on Zoom later.

Participants will usually receive a recording of the class.

Tips for Zoom Classes

Ideally 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.)

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.

If you haven't used Zoom before...

• Find the long link for the class you’re joining (below).

• Click on the link to go to the Zoom website, which will ask you to download the Zoom application.

• Click ‘download and run Zoom’.

• When the application (.pkg) has downloaded, click to install it. It will ask for permission to access your camera and microphone. Say yes.

• Open the application and click ‘join meeting’.

You may have to wait for me to admit you to the room.

When you’re in, you should see the meeting screen. If everything is working, I can see you, and you can see me.

I’ll be there 15 minutes before the class starts.

This is how it’s done!

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