Online Sessions

Laptop and girl

I LOVE empowering people to take charge of their – and their animals’ – health and well-being.  Online sessions allow me to help you no matter where you live!

For humans:  would you like to move more freely and comfortably?  Would you like to improve your flexibility, balance and coordination effortlessly?  Do you wish you had more elegant posture?  I can help you feel younger in mind and body!  I will lead you through Feldenkrais® Awareness Through Movement® lessons that are custom-designed to meet your needs and goals.  Online Skype sessions have been especially popular with equestrians, dog sport enthusiasts and others who wish to enjoy more elegant, balanced and coordinated movement.

For your dog, cat or horse:  Is your senior pet getting stiff or slow?  Is your pet recovering from an injury or illness? Is your dog anxious?  Do you wish to bond more deeply with your animal companion?  I can teach you how to help him/her feel better and move more freely.

Equestrians:  is your horse stiff, sore or resistant?  Do you have trouble maintaining your position in the saddle? Do you feel unbalanced or lacking in confidence?   I can teach you effective, practical ways of helping you and your horse become more balanced, flexible and harmonious partners.

Online sessions are conducted via Skype.  Your investment is $125 for a one-hour, recorded personal session*.

From California to Kenya!  While sitting in my kitchen in California, I taught a woman in Kenya how to help a ten week-old puppy, who was born with a twisted spine and weak hips.   Here’s what she had to say:  “Hi Mary, that was amazing… I can’t believe how much can be conveyed through Skype… especially how much you were able to perceive.  And having the video recording of the session is a real gift. Thank you so much, Mary!” M.E., Kenya

*Recordings allow you to refer back to the information presented in the online session.  You won’t have to rely on your memory! The recording is  for the client’s private use only.

In-person Feldenkrais Method sessions

I also offer private, in-person Feldenkrais Functional Integration® sessions in Encinitas, California. The client, comfortably clothed, lays or sits on a low padded table. The session lasts about 50 minutes and involves non-habitual, pleasurable movement and gentle touch.

Benefits can include: improved flexibility, coordination, posture and elimination of back, neck and knee pain. Clients improve flexibility, coordination and balance and I have had great success with improving equestrians’ performance. Each session is custom-tailored to the individual’s needs. The fee is $125. My office is located in Encinitas, San Diego County, CA.
