Why Feldenkrais?

People come to the Feldenkrais Method for a variety of reasons. Some are moving toward a goal like an easier childbirth, better well-being, or enhanced performance. Others are moving away from something they no longer wish to have in their life, like pain & discomfort. Where ever you are on the spectrum, the values or desires below are a pretty good indicator of whether or not this work is for you.

Although you may not be aware of it, the way you move through your daily activities can cause excess tension and stress. Eventually, that stress can be experienced as physical discomfort, mental fog, limited performance or emotional stress. A crucial part of what is needed in order to move out of this toxic stress is an internal understanding of how to move differently through life—body and mind.

Do any of the following describe you?

  • You value learning
  • You are ready for change
  • You have a desire to move past the habits that limit you
  • Your family’s health & well-being is important to you
  • You are patient and supportive of yourself (or want to be)

If  any of the above move you, then I can almost certainly help you.

Why ‘almost certainly’? Well, I don’t want to make any rash or inflated claims. That would be dishonest and potentially hurtful. What I can say is that I have worked many, many students, and nearly all of them have experienced a sustained and lasting improvement in well-being.

You see the essence of the Feldenkrais Method is learning how to learn. When you begin to embody some of the basic elements of organic learning, you regain a deeper sense of freedom and a curiosity about life that is profound. Before you know it, you are moving past the limitation that brought you here and into a life that is full of endless possibilities.

Buffy is highly educated and skilled as a hands on practitioner too boot. She works wonders whether it be leading a group class or individual sessions. Receiving work from her is a subtle but profound experience that brings about shifts in physical awareness that can translate to pain reduction as well as functional improvement. Highly recommended.

Although I’ve been in the health and wellness industry for 15 years and have helped many people with pain, there are occasions when my own old injuries flare up. As humbling as that can be, I feel safe and can trust Buffy to work on my body when it’s hurting. She is an amazingly skilled practitioner and I give her the highest respect and recommendation.

Initially, I came to Buffy to see if the Feldenkrais method could help me overcome limitations from an injury.  I’ve stayed because it offered that and so much more.

As a mother and grandmother, I appreciate how Buffy’s expertise can benefit new parents and children and wish I had known of Feldenkrais when my children were young.  Now, at 62, I benefit on many other levels.

Each class is a journey of discovery for me, challenging but mentally and physically rewarding.   I find a chance to laugh at myself and the habits I’ve developed over the years; habits that may have been useful when I was younger but now limit me. With Buffy’s guidance, I find new and easier ways to move and my listening, concentration and observation skills all improve.

As I enter the “rusty” years, I’ve come to appreciate how these new ways can be used to enhance every day.  Each day I find new applications, for example, from gardening, driving, reading, hiking, rolling on the floor to play with my grandchildren to, very importantly, getting up off the floor.

I consider Buffy’s teachings a gift. She has shown me that at any age you can grow with movement.
