I'm Brent Shaub

Weave your life's tapestry with refined dexterity.
  • About Me

A car collision fractured my pelvis, ribs and neck in 1998. Struggling to find comfort since, the past twenty years I've restored my health while managing a sedentary career developing software. Sitting ergonomics, Feldenkrais / Micro Yoga Zen, mindfulness meditation and pelvic myofascial release have proven to be essential practices. I offer first-hand knowledge to improve well-being through language and touch.

I don't offer quick fixes. Updating habitual neuromuscular patterns requires persistence. My services are pain-free, rooted in a deep listening to your nervous system. I address your concerns while training you to become a movement detective. Self-reliance and self-confidence are the rewards.

"When you talk to Maddie she tends to focus on you better, and I think she is receiving instruction better and processing it faster. Like at drama, when she was asked last week to run across the stage, I've never really seen her run like that; I was quite amazed."

"It's really starting to come along. We're seeing all these different things. She just loves Brent!"

"Without the self-study mindset that has permeated many aspects of my life, I would still live inside a limited shell, not exploring nor appreciating the wonderful things I'm capable of. I've surprised myself by doing something well I couldn't do at all before. I am far more athletic than I've ever been; I am more expressive creatively; I feel a sense of possibility and excitement life is offering. I can connect with my body—anytime, anywhere—and know that I am safe and capable."

  • How I've Helped

What is Feldenkrais / Micro Yoga Zen?

Through precise medical physics, your body senses differences in position and releases unnecessary holding. Because you are learning through direct experience, the results last. You accomplish the same tasks with less energy while enjoying yourself more.

I coined "Micro Yoga Zen" to describe the modality succinctly: small, sensitive movements that bring union to one's body, mind and feelings. "Feldenkrais" is the last name of the man who originated it in the 1970s, Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais. I've added techniques from Dr. David Wise and Paula Garbourg that address chronic pelvic pain.

"It's quite powerful yet very subtle. I move more gently; I'm inhabiting my body more."

"Awareness Through Movement® with Brent was so ace! Calm, clear, efficient movement and deep listening. Brent's passion and knowledge come through."

Private sessions offer unparalleled depth into self-discovery. You'll discover clear movement pathways that immediately improve well-being. Learning happens directly through the felt sense, primarily non-verbally. The pace is modulated with your nervous system -- not too much or too little -- so you can fall awake into your potent self. Sessions abate residual holding patterns, freeing you from inadvertent self-imposed limitations.

"During my sessions with Brent, I always felt safe and relaxed. He is professional and diligent. After talking through my injury, he performed gentle movements which led to alleviating the pain. Subtle but surprisingly transformational. I highly recommend!"

When applicable, pelvic floor myofascial release involves direct, internal palpation of trigger points. You'll be fully covered and informed of the process well in advance.

"Brent has a gentle touch that's clear and skeletal at the same time. It gave me an inner picture of the bones in my feet. Afterwards they functioned at a new level. If you ever get a chance to have a lesson, don't miss it!"

Doris Hosslocher GP, FPTP Student

"I really appreciate the thoughtfulness that went into your reply, I felt supported. Learning self-use in FI by making an ATM with props is fantastic. Takes all the pressure away about what the person is experiencing, the am I doing it right?, and are they feeling what they're supposed to be feeling?"

Andrew Gaines

"I've received Feldenkrais lessons from some of the most talented people in the world, and am intrigued by what Brent does. I would like to learn more."

My intention is to empower you with relevant, timely knowledge from my personal experience.
