Brent Shaub's hands on student's foot

Both through spoken group classes and individual hands-on sessions, I help people improve motor-based activities. From managing my own pain for 20 years, I offer a range of strategies to empower my clients towards self-sufficiency.

I operate out of at a trauma and abuse retreat centre near Cessnock where I host private retreats and continue with more case studies. As a registered provider for NDIS, my services include: innovative community participation, therapeutic supports, and exercise physical personal training. Having expanded the functionality of a clinical trial management system for four years, I am planning to conduct valid studies through an online class. I am accepting new clients.

Rosie Rees: Intimacy Coach | Yoga Instructor

“During my sessions with Brent I always felt safe and relaxed. Brent is an extremely professional and diligent practitioner and guides you through the process attentively. After talking through my injury with Brent, he intuitively performed gentle movements which led to alleviating the pain. The Feldenkrais technique is subtle, but the improvements are surprisingly transformational, especially witnessing my body’s changes and feeling at the end of the session. Brent is highly trained and exceptional at this healing modality. I highly recommend!”

Andrew Gaines: Feldenkrais Practitioner who trained with Moshe Feldenkrais | psychotherapist | EFT trainer

“This is a note of praise for Brent. I have gained from individual Feldenkrais lessons with some of the most accomplished Feldenkrais practitioners in the world. I was very pleased with the after effects of my FI session. The next day my posture was better and my breathing was more open. I couldn’t ask for more; it was good. But there was something more. There was something about part of Brent’s approach that was not only subtle, but new to me. I felt that it was effective, but, frankly, I didn’t know quite what he was doing. I would like to learn more.”

My Case Studies

When throwing an inanimate object like a pen, she'd chuck it quick with an overhand throw that was difficult to catch and felt aggressive. It was clear she needed to re-inhabit her body. This lengthy video portrays a stark contrast between someone afraid to explore, and the person she became: keen to see what's ahead. Video (23 min)

Maddie's mother, Hellen, took up my offer to explore effectiveness of MicroYoga on her daughter with Down Syndrome. Through mostly non-verbal communication, Maddie's keen ability to pay attention to led to a clear difference in her gait and balance in only seven sessions over three weeks. Maddie's willingness to play, enjoyment of life and uplifting effect on others are clearly seen in this short doco. (6 min)
