Too often the busyness of everyday life leads to compensations that accumulate into pain. Preventing pain by withdrawing from activities leads to atrophy, isolation and a reduced outlook on what you can do. One key aspect of quality of life is quality of movement. Enjoyable movement rekindles the innate desire to live spontaneously and authentically.
Coordinated, refined, gentle... these all describe Feldenkrais. Lessons bring to the foreground your subconscious sensory experience then teach ways to reduce effort and use your body more effectively. They are pain-free and have no prerequisites other than a willingness to learn.
How Feldenkrais Helps People by Michael Cann
I offer first-hand knowledge from my personal journey. A car collision fractured my pelvis, neck and ribs in 1998. Reducing pain and restoring functioning hindered from the impact took the fore as a young adult wanting to be free.
Because my sitting bone was affected, I've become a specialist in the pelvic floor by need for over twenty years. Feldenkrais, manual pelvic floor release and mindfulness meditation sustain my ability to travel and enjoy life.
Me, my pelvis, the Camaro, and the tow truck that collided.

"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!"

"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!"
