Feldenkrais® is science-based neuro-muscular retraining, which uses the plasticity of the human brain to offer natural healing from stress, injury, or inefficient body use. Feldenkrais retrains the nervous system through gentle movement exploration, creating new physical and mental habits. Students increase coordination, range of motion, mental function, and lengthen the spine. They reduce stress and pain, recover from injury and refine their sport or art, often realizing changes they had not imagined. Movements are done sitting and lying down.
What is Feldenkrais? It is an approach toward oneself for the brave. There are no prerequisites, it requires simply that you bring your curiosity and a willingness to listen to yourself.
“I am inspired by the human capacity for transformation and healing. My first exposure to the Feldenkrais Method® was in a class. After class, my shoulder which had been tipped, lay flat on the floor. More-over, it was clear that Feldenkrais is a place where I am the authority in this body! A lifetime pursuit of creative activities and high impact injuries to my spine, attracted me to study four years to be a Feldenkrais Practitioner. When my students embody their internal authority, I see them improve their lives.”
Margot teaches others how to access their creativity, internal authority and health. She works with people in all states of health, from professional athletes and performers who want to refine their skills, to folks with back aches and neck pains who want to improve daily activities like walking, sitting or reaching, to those who’ve had stroke or injury, surgery or central nervous system disorders. Clients and students report feeling lighter, grounded, more present, centered and balanced, looser, less pain, more energy, more joy… able to work and relate more consistently in ways that please them. Margot incorporates her experience as Reiki Master and Qigong Teacher into private Feldenkrais Functional Integration® sessions with clients, and classes.
What’s different about Feldenkrais is that as a neurological learning process, its benefits are long term.“The aim is a body that is organized to move with minimum effort and maximum efficiency, not through muscular strength, but increased consciousness of how it works.”
