Feldenkrais Method with Jackie Adkins

Feldenkrais Class

The Feldenkrais Method is a uniquely powerful approach to learning to move with greater ease. It is useful for people who have specific difficulties such as back pain, tension or recovery from injury. It is also of interest to those who want to increase their potential – as a person and also in activities such as sport, playing a musical instrument, yoga, dance and horse-riding. It can also be of benefit to people who have suffered from a stroke or other neurological conditions.
