Moshe Feldenkrais giving a lesson to a student in 1981
Private, one-on-one, lessons - also called Functional Integration® - allow Paula to better address your individual needs and goals. In a typical lesson, the student lies fully clothed on a padded table, while Paula gently guides his/her movements using safe and respectful touch and words. Lessons are also given in the sitting or standing positions. There is no pain involved nor any forceful procedure is used. Most people find the experience quite pleasurable and relaxing. At the end of the lesson, Paula might suggest a few movements to do at home in order to further the learning. Lessons last approximately 1 hour. The number of lessons will depend on the person’s individual needs.
Please note that Paula is not a medical professional. She does not treat or diagnose symptoms and conditions. The Feldenkrais Method® is an educational approach. Paula is a teacher. She will help you become aware of movement habits that are harming you and will help you find other options of movement. As students improve their movement abilities, they often report that their symptoms decrease or disappear as a result of the learning process.
Please call 704-905-8594 or email Paula with any questions or to schedule an initial appointment.
