The Feldenkrais Method uses comfortable, easy movements as a means to re-engage the nervous system in the kind of learning we all do as infants, but later usually abandon. The workshop is open to all participants’ level of ability and focuses on improving our quality and ease of movement through awareness.
Participants usually leave the workshop feeling energized, more flexible, and more aware with a brain re-awakened to possibilities.
The goal of each lesson is to “make the impossible, possible; the possible, easy; and the easy, elegant”.
Catherine Wycoff, PT, DPT, GCFP, PHCS, CERP has been a physical therapist for 28 years with an undergraduate degree in Physical Therapy from Belgium and a doctorate degree from Des Moines University. She was introduced to the Feldenkrais Method in the early nineties and was amazed by how such gentle Awareness Through Movement® sessions can rewire our brain to improve the way we move and live our lives. She decided to take the four-year Feldenkrais professional training in 1997 and loves to watch her students learn to improve their flexibility, balance, posture, and rediscover how to move with ease and joy at any age. Catherine is also trained in Myofascial Release (MFR) and incorporates both her Feldenkrais and MFR training in her practice. She has volunteered and set up private practices in Belgium, Laos, Taiwan, China, Burma, Australia, and Austria in addition to the US.
