You remember how to know, from internal feedback, where you are, and how you’re moving.

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.

Simple!

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.

monthly mini-workshops

online

Monthly two-hour workshops exploring a particular theme.

These are a good way to work in more depth, and you can come to one, some or all.

The titles give the focus, but all kinds of benefits can be found, depending on your existing habits of movement.

Sometimes we know where the pain or the difficulty is, but we don’t know where we need to re-organise to improve it. These classes can help.

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.

“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...”

• Find the long link, the Meeting ID (9 numbers) and the password (6 numbers) for the class you’re joining (above).

• 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’.

• Enter the meeting ID and the password when asked.

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.
