What is your goal? To improve your walking, stair climbing, or to be able to do your activities of daily living with more ease? Perhaps you are in the performing arts and wish to explore improved ease of movement and are curious about the way the Feldenkrais Method works and how it can improve your function. Or perhaps you wish to get back to riding your bicycle, playing tennis, hiking, horseback riding, or another sport.
Fiona has worked with a diverse population from teenagers with scoliosis, dancers, musicians, and people with neurological problems and orthopedic injuries to people who have chronic pain and movement problems. Fiona will work with you to develop a plan of care to target your specific needs and outline short and long term goals. Fiona can instruct you with a home program and provide short Awareness Through Movement lessons designed to assist you on your road to recovery.
Moshe Feldenkrais stated: “If you know what you are doing you can do what you want.” And that by decreasing the effort and strain in our movements and becoming more aware we can explore ways to improve our wellbeing and overall function.
