""...Experience graceful pain-free movement while broadening understanding of how dancers can achieve a desired aesthetic with less strain on the joints and muscles." - Dance Magazine

Most injuries are a result of stressful and inefficient use of oneself. Physicist, Engineer, Judo Master and Educator, Moshe Feldenkrais, D.Sc. (1904 - 1984) developed an extraordinary Method of learning to move and act efficiently and effectively. The process of discovering our unlimited potential as physical beings is also a profound source for deepening self-knowledge.

In an effort to stand "correctly" dancers often interfere with their own strength and flexibility which they have acquired through years of training and stretching. Whereas trying to hold oneself upright causes tension, the act of balancing our bones frees up large muscle groups so they are available to move us through space with a feeling and appearance of effortlessness.

Each of us has experienced moments of effortless movement where everything comes together with ease and grace. Taking the time to become aware of and feel how those moments came about, we may begin to consistently recognize specific details that inhibit and/or allow us to progress.

Dancers find expanding their movement repertoire has an extraordinary effect on their ability to learn new and refine already established technique. Discovering unlimited movement possibilities also feeds choreographic ideas and encourages creativity.

"I am surprised at how much my choreography has changed! I move all over and create without apprehension now. I felt restricted or just complacent before... not NOW!" - Christy Loper, GA, dance teacher

Awareness Through Movement®...

Through awareness we can learn how to move with astonishing lightness and freedom." - Moshe Feldenkrais

Awareness Through Movement® (ATM) lessons are an amazing tool for dancers to learn to move with more confidence, elegance and power. They provide opportunities to recognize personal movement habits, including those that may be interfering with the ease and efficiency of your movement and ultimate potential. Specific verbally guided movement sequences improve your ability to act with precision and spontaneity.

When you learn to accomplish your intentions with more skill and less effort, you gain stamina, and minimize stress on your muscles and joints.


Functional Integration®...

Functional Integration® (FI) was the original form of movement lessons developed by Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais. Each lesson is uniquely designed for the individual's needs and requests. Specific gentle touch is used to bring awareness to how one moves, introduce new movement skills and improve overall functioning. Expanding one's movement repertoire opens new possibilities for feeling, moving and acting.

"I was totally awed and fascinated with the effects of the Functional Integration session. I am still mentally digesting information. - Judy Pelusi, TX
