Kevin discovered the Feldenkrais Method® after unsuccessful attempts to recover from a running injury with physical therapy.  After a few Feldenkrais sessions, he was running again and found himself gaining so much freedom and flexibility that he kept up the sessions and eventually decided to enroll in a 4-year training directed by Aliza Stewart in Boston.

 

Aliza Stewart has specialized in working privately with top musicians and at festivals such as Yellow Barn and Marlboro Music festival, helping musicians to recover from injuries and regain greater physical and expressive freedom and pleasure from their art.  Aliza has taught Feldenkrais lessons at Julliard and Peabody Conservatory of Music, University of Maryland Medical School and George Mason University.

 

While many people find their way to Feldenkrais Method as a way to get out of pain,  this method of body awareness and discovery has been widely used by athletes, musicians, and anyone who wants more flow, ease and flexibility in movement and self-expression.

Kevin is currently a trainee in the Feldenkrais Method. He will offer "Feldenkrais for Musicians" at his retreats upon successful completion of certification for teaching Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement (ATM). (Anticipated May 2018).

"Trying the Feldenkrais Method for Chronic Pain"

"I had long refrained from writing about this method of countering pain because I thought it was some sort of New Age gobbledygook with no scientific basis.  Boy was I wrong!" – Jane Brody, New York Times
