This intensive classes of body awareness will follow the Feldenkrais method.

The Feldenkrais Method is widely known for its effectiveness in reducing or even eliminating pain and its ability to teach people how to manage chronic pain through better movement, increased self-confidence, and awareness. These lessons are suitable not only for those with recurrent pain but for anyone who desires greater ease of movement.

The Feldenkrais Method is recognized for the strategies it employs to improve posture, flexibility, coordination, athletic and artistic ability and to help those with restricted movement, chronic pain and tension (including back pain and other common ailments), as well as neurological, developmental and psychological problems. It uses a process of organic learning, movement, and sensing to free you from habitual patterns and allow for new patterns of thinking, moving and feeling to emerge.

"Following the program with Feldenkrais, patients showed significant improvement in their levels of pain, decreased numbers of medications, and increased quality of life." — American Journal of Pain Management
