Looking for an alternative to Yoga and Pilates? Try The Feldenkrais Method and learn to dance, play sports and simply move with ease.
The Feldenkrais Method® lets you experience your own potential by exploring your body through gentle movements. You can improve your movements and (re)gain comfort and ease.
Since 2017 I am a guild certified Feldenkrais practitioner and offering Feldenkrais Group classes (Awareness Through Movement classes) and Feldenkrais Private classes (Functional Integration). Here are some of the feedback I have gotten from my Feldenkrais students. I hope you’ll find them helpful.
The Feldenkrais Methode – Testimonials
“It’s been a great help to me, I fell backwards awkwardly 18 months ago damaging my back in two places, and have had back pain since. Bärbel’s teaching of Feldenkrais has helped me stand, walk and sit correctly aligned. I noticed a difference straight away. I recommend giving it a try!”— Sousa Hari
” My neck had much more freedom today Bärbel after Thursday nights session so thank you so much. Tinnitus still ringing but hopeful that will improve with more sessions. Bring on the Feldenkrais ❤️”— Julie Jenkins, owner of Reflections Hair Salon, Lydney
Feldenkrais & Tango Testimonials
The Feldenkrais Method is highly beneficial when it comes to body awareness and movement. In some places I have already offered combined Feldenkrais & Tango classes or specific Feldenkrais classes for tango dancers. Here are some of the feedback I’ve got afterwards.
“I joined the (Feldenkrais) workshops Bärbel offered at Tango Feast and found them to be so very helpful in relaxing my feet and my body so that felt I just danced like an angel for the whole 4 days and nights. Bärbel generates a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and injects warmth and humour into proceedings. I am looking forward to the next time! Thanks Bärbel! X”— Pamela N., 1st February 2019 (Move Better with Feldenkrais Workshops @ Tango Feast Christmas edition 2018)
“I took part in a couple of Bärbel’s classes in March 2019 and found them extraordinary. I was invited to explore movement by Bärbel’s soft energy and clear verbal descriptions about how my body might move. I felt an increase in my body awareness whilst moving during and after the classes. I experienced an enhanced sense of presence doing the exercises and found I was able to relax and release tension. Thank you Bärbel. “–Participant, Move Better with Feldenkrais @ Tango Feast Spring edition 2019)
“Just to say thanks for the [Tango & Feldenkrais] workshops at Sheffield [Tango Festival] they have been a great benefit to me I am moving easier in my tango and in daily life”— Steve F., May 2019 (Tango & Feldenkrais Workshops @ The Sheffield Tango Festival 2019, FB event)
“For any of you who knows little or next to nothing about Feldenkrais, Bärbel’s workshops are amazing! I was lucky enough to take part in one of the sessions and was impressed by how effective the movements were.— Linda Okuniewska
I would recommend any of the workshops, but in particular the ones relevant to tango for all of you keen to improve your posture in the dance.”
