“For 3 years following spine surgery, I had chronic pain and was unable to run, do yoga or other physical activities that gave me pleasure and always kept me sane – even time working at my computer was significantly limited. Before I began working with Kathleen Aharoni, I’d consulted every medical “expert” without success and zero discernible improvement. I knew some aspects of my movement and thought patterns needed to change, but I simply couldn’t identify the source. Kathleen’s consistent emphasis on whole system dynamics and her curious, patient questions enabled me to reconsider efforts I’d once viewed as healthy and let go of habits that undermined me. I wholeheartedly recommend Kathleen, our work together truly changed my life!"

The Feldenkrais Method®
Through the Feldenkrais Method®, you can develop and know your most dynamic self through curiosity, movement, sensation and cognition. Easefully and quickly your world will open as you gain self-awareness, freedom of movement and thought, clarity of physical, emotional and cognitive patterns and much opportunity to catalyze your psycho-neurology and open to a new, creative and potent way of being in the world.
Through seemingly effortless movement explorations called Awareness through Movement® (ATM) lessons, you will:
- Become a more differentiated being and experientially learn how the greater the differentiation the more dynamic the whole.
- Learn to catalyze and understand vitality.
- Learn the importance of how vs why for forward movement
- Develop and/or sharpen your ability to recognize relational patterns and how to introduce curiosity and creativity to instigate new patterns for optimal functioning.
- Understand through sensation how the importance of being “right” creates stagnation and limitation and stymies creativity.
- Release physical pain.
- Gain new found freedom of thought and movement.
- Recognize and release fears and habits.
- Develop greater trust, knowing and intelligence.
The Feldenkrais Method® is based on the evolutionary development of the human nervous system and the innate plasticity of the brain.

“Kathleen’s incredible coaching lends itself to wholly embodied growth. After just a few Feldenkrais Method® lessons, suddenly I was making effortless connections between my physical and emotional being. Kathleen’s care for teaching me how to listen to this dialogue opened up a world of learning: learning how to trust my internal compass as a reliable guide for the movements of my spiritual life.”

GYROTONIC® Master Trainer Angela Crowley of GYROTONIC® Coral Gables:
"When I embarked upon a four year education to become a Feldenkrais Practitioner, I began yearning for an exercise system that would match the organic organization of systemic movement in the Feldenkrais system. I wanted access to greater freedom of the trunk and spine. That is when I discovered the GYROTONIC® system. Gyrotonic movements begin from the inside out, starting with breath and spinal movement which expand into full body movement. Different from any other system I know, the diverse and multiple pieces of equipment can support and challenge the needs of anyone from rehabilitation to training of high level athletes. Similar to Feldenkrais the movement is fluid, efficient and diversifies around all planes of motion and relationships with gravity. To this day my private practice focuses on the use of manual therapy, movement reeducation using the Feldenkrais Method and the GYROTONIC® Method."
