"Thank you! I skied a long day yesterday and noticed my quads were burning crazy in the early afternoon. When that happened, I started trying to incorporate the movements you showed me last week. It totally helped! I got in a lot more runs and felt good about them. I'm excited to apply this to my running!" Karra
"Ireneís Feldenkrais lessons have been invaluable to me as a former dancer recovering proper use of my legs. Only two years ago, walking was difficult. Now Iím ballroom dancing. From the very first lesson Iíve felt dramatic improvement in ease and quality of movement. I hadnít realized how restricted my chest, shoulder girdle and pelvis had become, or that I wouldnít always have to use my hands to lift my legs when getting into my car, or have to use a handrail to drag myself up stairs. What a surprise when I was changing my shoes at the end of an evening of dancing and discovered Iíd forgotten to use my knee braceÖ and my knee didnít hurt. At the age of 70, I had no idea the body could respond and recover so quickly. The gentle, subtle movements of Feldenkrais are now part of my ongoing wellness program. Thank you, Irene." Lin
"I had a Feldenkrais session with Ed in the morning, that night went ballroom dancing. I love to dance but usually cannot dance for more than a few hours. That night I started at 7:30 and danced the last dance at 11:15. It was just easier to move and took less effort. That hasnít happened before, without exhaustion the next day; this time I felt fine in the morning with good energy. Coincidence? I think not." David
"This evening we had a soup supper at church. I walked around the tables without my cane, and actually cleared dishes off the tables as people finished. People were noticing the change." Monnie
"I LOVE the discovery of pushing myself up stairs with my back leg rather than pulling with front. Marvellous. My injured rotator cuff continues to bother me less. What a wonderful four weeks. My happy flowing spine thanks you." Betsy
Cope with a chronic illness, injury, or high stress
"In a short session, Irene helped me regain some range of motion I had long lost to rheumatoid arthritis." Lisa
"After a year of physical therapy I couldn't turn my head comfortably. After today's class I can!" Douglas
"I am continually amazed at how rich and interesting this approach is. And, of course, your intelligence and curiosity, bring out that depth! Thank you for being that island of peace and sanity in the sea of overwhelm." Jean
"Before the workshop, I was stressed and exhausted. Afterwards, I felt more grounded. I felt balanced (and I have balance problems. I was more relaxed than I'd been in weeks. My jaw was softer and wasn't clicking as usual." Theresa
"Ireneís ATM classes have helped me to ward off injury by learning to move my body with more grace and less effort. I find that I no longer suffer from low back pain when I am on my feet all day or when I skate. The ATM class has also helped to increase my range of motion through my neck, chest, back, and hips. Wendy
"My neighbor wondered who that young person was she saw walking in my yard. It is like magic. Irene, I am so grateful for your knowledge and for the gentle and fun way in which you teach me." Eva
"I had the pleasure of a Feldenkrais session with Ed at Move Beyond Limits in Bellevue a few weeks ago. Just one session. And I am still thinking about and incorporating what I learned - focusing on how the whole body works together to create one simple motion (like turning your head). Adjustments with a super light touch and gentle motions. I felt the difference right away!" Lynne
"After one session with Ed, I havenít felt so good in years. It really is amazing how good I feel. My hairdresser said I walk differently." Susan
"Before, when I would fall, I was like a tree. From the Feldenkrais, I was able to turn my body, grab the rail, and gently twist to the ground. I looked to see where I was going." Nancy
"I already see signs of improvement from participating in this class, the most encouraging one being that this past summer I grew taller, that is, from one doctorís appointment to the next, I recovered about three-quarters of an inch I had lost in height." Ann O.
Short career, long career - be more comfortable at work
"I stand in front of my class differently and am aware of softening my chest and using my arms with greater rotation ( as per the exercise we did against the wall.) I speak and behave differently. I find there's much less stress when I can relax. I breath differently using my upper chest more to breathe in and my core stomach muscles to breath out. Ann H.
