Better Balance Over 50-Live Online

For those who struggle with falling and are tired of missing out on the joy of life from fear of falling more.

  • Improve balance without hard work or strain.
  • Relieve nagging joint and back pain
  • Recover a sense of safety and confidence.
  • Reverse the downward spiral of inactivity
  • Get back to doing what lights you up.
  • Feel “like yourself” again

You may already be working hard to improve your balance. You’d love to get back to long walks, dancing, playing with the grandkids.

But you keep falling and taking longer to recover.  And the stairs are really scary when your body might betray you at any time.

You’ve done your PT faithfully.  You work out, try to build core strength, but it hurts…and actually feels like you’re getting weaker.

What’s going on?

Unconscious holding patterns.  

For every injury we’ve ever sustained, we’ve braced to avoid more pain.  The holding pattern tends to persist even after the injury heals because it feels safe and normal.

The usual protocol to improve balance is to build muscle.  We work hard. The problem is, the harder we work, the more we have to brace to protect.  This working against ourselves causes joint pain and weakness, while the rigidity of bracing causes even more instability.  It’s why people who fall, tend to fall again…and again.

If we think of earthquake-proofing a building, do we make it more rigid?  No, we make it more flexible, so it can absorb the shock.

But how does this work for humans?  

The key is to resolve the holding pattern. Stop working against yourself. Regain your flow so you can roll with the punches.

There’s an easy and blissful way to do this and our brains are naturally hardwired for it.

Better Balance The Easy Way

In these sessions I guide you through gentle movement sequences that are simple and easy to do, yet are a powerful and effective way to retrain the brain for better balance, less pain and greater range of motion.  It’s particularly great for women over-50, who want to stay active but have had enough of no pain/no gain…there’s been more than enough pain already.

“I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your class!  I have not been to a yoga class for 14 months due to hip pain.  I had my bad hip replaced two months ago and am finally ready to start exercising.  Your class was perfect.  In addition to the strengthening, the meditative part of the work was very helpful in the stressful time.  Thank you so much.”  Carolyn S

“…my right hip was pain-free when I awoke this morning, for the first time in about a year.  No lie. ” Cathy Buller

Frequently Asked Questions

How did you come to be teaching this?

It grew out of my own healing journey.  During my recovery from several falls, my PT kept nagging me to stop limping.  She said the limping would cause pain in my hip and SI joint…and she was right, it did!
But I wasn’t even aware that I was limping.  To me, it was just “walking”.  She didn’t know how to show me how to stop because she didn’t know how I had it all wired in my nervous system.  Meanwhile, I kept falling and getting injured.

My recovery was long and arduous. It wasn’t until I started doing Feldenkrais that I was able to decode that limp, resolve my joint pain, and start getting my groove back.  It had such an impact on my feelings of confidence, safety…and overall ability to take care of myself, that I was moved to go through the professional training so I could bring more of it into the world.

How does this work?

Most of these movement explorations are done lying down.   A carpeted area on the floor, with enough room to do a “snow angel”,  is ideal.  If it’s too difficult to get up and down from the floor, you may also do them on a bed.

Either way, you’ll stand up feeling grounded, refreshed…lighter, more resilient.

Do I need any special equipment?  

No special equipment.  You may want extra padding, a small pad or rolled up towel to support your head.

How should I prepare?

Sessions last about 1 hour.  You’ll want that time to be quiet and free of distractions.  It’s good to wear something comfy cozy and easy to move in.  You may want to have layers handy so you don’t get cold.
When are the sessions offered?  

We meet Mondays and Wednesdays at 3pm Pacific Time.  But don’t worry if you can’t make it live every time.  A replay is available to all participants, so you can do the session at your convenience.
