weekly classes and
monthly two-hour
mini-workshops

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!

"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"

I teach regular weekly classes in Bristol on Thursday mornings, and a two-hour mini-workshop once a month on Monday afternoon.

For all the details, and to book, see below

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.

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 wear comfortable clothes that are easy to move in. Dress for warmth.
It’s a wooden floor, so please bring  a mat or a blanket to work on.

This is how it’s done!

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