“CURIOSITY IN MOVEMENT. This is a deep thread that has run through my life. I’ve led a physical life but wasn’t always particularly wise in the upkeep of my body. Early on, I was curious about all kinds of sports, then dance, then pottery. However, a lifetime of movement and twenty years at the potter’s wheel made me curious about pain. Specifically serious, chronic back pain.
I began to feel better with the very first Feldenkrais® movement class I took. This encouraged me to take more classes and pursue private sessions as well. And I became more and more curious about how micro-movements so subtle could influence the nervous system so profoundly. What was once painful became comfortable. What had been difficult became effortless. And life in the body suddenly became a pleasure rather than an obstacle. I needed to know more. And since practically everyone I knew was in some kind of pain, I wanted to learn to help others as I had been helped.
I graduated from a four-year Feldenkrais® training program in 1992. I have a private practice in Portland, Maine and also teach classes and workshops on a regular basis. It’s an honor to be able to teach this method. Everyone is welcome and everyone can improve and learn to live more comfortably.”
Urinary stress incontinence is an epidemic. But most women can be helped by strengthening their pelvic floor. Jane Burdick, a Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner®, can show you exactly how to do this—in the privacy of your own home. –Christiane Northrup, MD., and author Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom (Bantam, 1998) The Wisdom of Menopause (Bantam, 2001)
