The one-to-one lessons, also known as Functional Integration or F.I., are the hands on application of the Feldenkrais method®.
The individualization creates the conditions to be as particular, as you want and we can address your personal needs. Once, we have discussed what that might be, you lie or sit on a low padded table. You will be always fully clothed. I`ll be using precise and gentle touch, sometimes verbal instructions, to offer your with opportunities to explore the ways you prefer to move, enrich your sensory image and deepen your understanding how what you do, affects the ways you experience movement. And finally what you can do differently, to avoid discomfort or pain. I`ll be helping you to reach new movement options and recognize your old-established habits. Each session is dedicated to your unique movement make up, as no two people are the same in the way they organize to move. It usually lasts an hour.
You might become aware of those new possibilities for a movement that your nervous system registers, straight after the one-to-one session. Sometimes when more complex patterns are affected, it might take a few hours for you to notice and begin to accommodate those new and exciting options.
Many people report, feeling more comfortable in their own skin, relaxed, energized, pain-free balanced and above all embodied in a new agile and empowering way. It is a learning experience and I might suggest some movement sequences to help you integrate and refine those new possibilities, make them part of your daily life.
If, you are looking for help with a neurological condition such as brain injury, Stroke, Multiple Sclerosis or Cerebral Palsy or are dealing with a chronic pain, repetitive strain injury (RSI). If you would like to support and ease your recovery after an injury , or if you are researching a new and efficient ways of how to refine an existing skill and improve your performance in music, sports, dance, then the Feldenkrais method is an effective way to help you learn how to move beyond your limitations.
Please wear something comfortable and loose. (make sure that your movement is not restricted by your clothing and your trousers allow your breath to expand in your belly). While relaxed during the session, similarly to when falling asleep, your body temperature might lower a bit, make sure you have an extra layer of clothes to keep you warm.
I charge on a sliding scale for an hour session between 60.00 and £75.00 an hour. The lower rates apply to block bookings and also your ability to pay would be considered on request.
I live in Stoke Newington, London and teach mostly from the comfort of my home which has +/-.
If you would like to arrange a lesson in your home and live not further than 6 miles away from Stoke Newington, please contact me via email or alternatively call.

Have you ever wondered how do we improve in action and how is it that we are capable of defying our own expectations? Or with other words ” How is it possible to outgrow our own skill and habits”?
That is possible in a Feldenkrais lesson as it is your nervous system that gets actively involved in the process of movement education. It is not all about biomechanics – it is also your ability to sense and navigate your physicality while interacting (ing) . With simple words you are not only the machine, you are also the navigator and if your sensors are not working very well or you are unable to read the data, then you might come to a state where your performance is not getting any better or the process of embodiment becomes difficult and painful, resulting in injuries and fatigue.
That is why, instead of being presented with a set of muscle toning exercises which will be repeated mindlessly, you will be guided through a large number of movement variations and sequences that have been put together to help you improve in a functional way your capacity to move with grace and ease. You will be increasing the ability to sense(perceive), think (interpret) and feel (understand) while giving your muscles a chance to experience a truly large range of situations. I will be there with you to help you enjoy your discoveries and remind you of key ideas which, if applied to your ways of the embodiment, will transform your capabilities. You will get the chance to create your own understanding of what is
the kind of understanding that will allow you to embody those qualities, increase the ease of motion and apply them to everything you do.
Dr. Feldenkrais once wrote:
“Movement is life.”
The way we move flavors our experience. You might have heard the saying that we are creatures of habit. On the other hand, maybe you have realized that life is changeable and fluid. Can you step in the same river twice? Inability to find your comfort zone between habit and choice often results in:
all of which affect the capacity to act spontaneously.
You might have come across some information about the Feldenkrais method by researching new and efficient ways of how to refine an existing skill and improve your performance in arts, music, sports, dance or drama and learn how to do better.
The lessons are suitable for anyone who is looking for help with a neurological condition affecting their mobility or are dealing with chronic pain, trauma or age-related injury.
