"Shannon and the Feldenkrais Method have given me remarkable breakthroughs in body awareness, flexibility and ease of movement. The benefits have not stopped with the physical. Feldenkrais has taught me a new way to learn and problem solve - there is always an "easy" way to do something. Shannon's skill, voice, and expertise makes it all easy."
- Dr. Cheryl Townsley, ND, Author of Discovering Wholeness and Lifestyle for Health

"For the past ten years I've been unable to walk without severe pain, unable to bend, and had difficulty sleeping. I tried countless holistic therapies with minimal success. Since working with Shannon, I feel as though I've been given a new lease on life! I am sleeping well, can walk for miles with very little pain, and can almost touch the floor again. I'm extremely grateful for what Shannon and The Feldenkrais Method have done for me."
- Victoria Munro Block, Co-Founder of Make-It-Fly, Small Business Advisors

"Feldenkrais, with Shannon, has been one of those incredible experiences that slowly "snuck up" on me and then seemingly "suddenly" changed my life! At age 53 I really assumed that my body was what it was and that change would be minimal. Instead, I'm discovering that I have so much more potential that I ever thought possible. Shannon has been an incredible coach in helping me rediscover all that my body can do. I've also experienced the transfer of these physical breakthroughs into other areas of my life - personal relationships and business success! As my body has become more connected, aware, and flexible the same thing has been happening in everything else I do. Shannon has been a true master a facilitating this process."
- Forest, business owner and coach, and ballroom dancer

"During my first Feldenkrais class with Shannon I was hooked on the brilliance, beauty and grace of the process and the meditative quality I was able to achieve. Then, when we began the hands-on lessons, a whole new world was opened to me. I realized what I could do if I would "get out of my own way". I recently had total hip replacement surgery. I am quickly regaining my muscle strength, general range of motion, and energy with amazing speed and ease. I attribute this to my Feldenkrais practice. Furthermore, I am convinced that had I met Shannon a few months earlier, I would not have needed the surgery at all!"
-  Kate, retired government worker and artist

"I have had severe scoliosis for my whole life. I'm on the computer many hours a day. I have found that through working with Shannon and the Feldenkrais Method that my pain level has been greatly reduced. I even hold my chiropractic adjustments longer. I highly recommend Shannon."
- Kathy, graphic designer

"I have been intrigued by this subtle form of retraining the nervous system, which I recommend to patients whose movement has been restricted by injury, cerebral palsy, stroke, fibromyalgia, or chronic pain. I find it to be much more useful than standard physical therapy. I also believe that the Feldenkrais Method can help older people achieve greater range of motion and flexibility, and help all of us feel more comfortable in our bodies."
— Andrew Weil, M.D., Author of Spontaneous Healing and Natural Health, Natural Medicine

"The Feldenkrais Method has allowed me to play pain free golf, without worrying about injury."
—Duffy Waldorf, PGA Tour Golfer
