Feel The Love...
Initially, I came to Buffy to see if the Feldenkrais method could help me overcome limitations from an injury. I’ve stayed because it offered that and so much more.
As a mother and grandmother, I appreciate how Buffy’s expertise can benefit new parents and children and wish I had known of Feldenkrais when my children were young. Now, at 62, I benefit on many other levels. Each day I find new applications, for example, from gardening, driving, reading, hiking, rolling on the floor to play with my grandchildren to, very importantly, getting up off the floor.
I consider Buffy’s teachings a gift. She has shown me that at any age you can grow with movement.
