FI - Private Sessions (Adults)
Functional Integration (FI) is the hands-on approach of the Feldenkrais Method and each session is personalized to meet the needs of the individual. The essence of the private work is steeped in the title of the approach. There is physical function that is limited and is most likely inhibiting your daily life as well as causing you pain. In each lesson the practitioner will create a conversation with body parts so they will work more efficiently as an integrated whole.
Awareness Through Movement® (Youth & Adults)
During an ATM class, we explore movement so you can improve your daily function and feel better in your body. We question how you can move with less effort, less stress, and with greater freedom.
Because we examine your approach to movement – any lesson at any time can be used by people from all walks of life.
