    What is Feldenkrais

    The Feldenkrais method®, emphasizes the connection between the mind, body, and spirit. You will be guided through gentle movement sequences which have an extraordinary effect on adapting the nervous system towards its optimal state. The method is great for easing body aches and pains and helping us to regain clarity, focus, and direction.

    What is Sound Healing?

    Sound Healing is improvised, non-periodic, harmonic, and tonal sound created with the intention of restoring flow and clearing congested energy from the body allowing for the nervous system's natural self-healing process to take place. One can expect to feel physical, emotional, and spiritual shifts occur in an atmosphere of tranquility and meditation.

    When Sound Healing and Feldenkrais are combined, some of the results one can expect to feel include:

    • Freeing your body from stiffness, aches and pain.
    • Improved skeletal alignment, flexibility & physical mobility.
    • Improved athletic performance.
    • Decreased anxiety, stress and sleep issues.
    • Improved, strength, agility, and comfort.
    • Improved intuition.

    Be prepared to experience a subtle yet amazing shift inside in this environment of ease and pleasure.
