You might also ask What is Feldenkrais and how can it help me ??

The Feldenkrais Method uses gentle, creative and fluid movement explorations to integrate our awareness of how we move our body and assists us to break habits and patterns that cause us to unnecessarily tense and hold our bodies. This chronic holding and lack of awareness predisposes us to injury and pain and inhibits our ability to move well.

Benefits of Feldenkrais include :

  • Freedom of movement
  • Improved posture
  • Ability to exercise with less injury
  • Assists with pain management

Developing a happy and healthy moving relationship with your body also improves mood, lightening depression and easing anxiety.

As a highly skilled and experienced Practitioner, Margie combines these valuable healing tools to help you on your journey towards greater health and wellbeing. She provides her clients with notes or recordings for home practice.
