I have been taking Chrish’s Feldenkrais classes faithfully for over 3 years and when in need for some special attention, make an appointment with her for an individual Functional Integration (FI) session. Simply put, these sessions with Chrish have changed my life and my body. What my regular yoga practice could not address, Feldenkrais could–and as a result, has made my yoga more fluid and joyful. With ” Feldy “, my chronic TMJ (jaw pain) has lessened dramatically, same for neck and back pain. And when any of these annoyances reappear, I just lie down on the floor, do some Feldy movements and I’m good to go. A recently broken wrist has healed more quickly along with the return of function that I believe is due in great part to Feldy–practiced even while the wrist was still in the cast! Chrish is simply the best instructor for any body work I’ve known. She is patient, persistent, supportive, gentle, positive, and extremely skilled. I fully trust her knowledge and know that she continues to feed it, so her students continue to progress and benefit. It’s frustrating to me that so few people know about Feldenkrais and even fewer try it out. That was true of my husband, who comes from a science/medical background. At first skeptical, a stiff spine nudged him to give Feldy a try. Two years later, he continues to attend class and he’s moving with ease that most “60-something” men only envy. ”
“I feel that Feldenkrais has helped me get rid of the headaches I was having, which I believe stemmed from holding tension in my jaw. Now I notice that I let go of tension in my jaw many times a day and hardly ever have a headache. I enjoy walking for exercise and I have learned from Chrish’s Feldenkrais classes how to walk smoothly and straighter than before.”
“My yoga teacher, considerably younger than I am, recommended Feldenkrais to me, saying her mother was my age and it was helping her. With a knee I was afraid would have to be replaced, I was willing to try anything. Now, after a year of taking Feldenkrais from Chrish Kresge in Washington, DC, I can feel the difference in a positive response in my body. My knee has regained its mobility, and I walk with a minimum of discomfort. While the technique is part of the story, I feel the practitioner is the major part. Ms. Kresge not only knows her subject thoroughly, but her manner of teaching, her warmth and personal concern for every one of her students makes the sessions feel less like a class and more like a family gathering. I take her classes in her well-appointed studio in Washington, and I understand that she also conducts sessions in Feldenkrais and Bones for Life® in other areas of the Washington metropolitan area. If you want to better your body and lifestyle, I heartily recommend her.”

“For many years I suffered from lower back pain that left me unable to stand for long periods, sometimes so bad I would literally have to sit down on the floor (even in grocery stores and other public places) just to alleviate the pain. Today, after a year of weekly Feldenkrais classes taught by my wonderful teacher, Chrish Kresge, I am pain free. The change happened without my even realizing it until one day I suddenly became aware of the fact that I had not had back pain in months. My pain-free life continues, along with weekly classes, thanks to the Feldenkrais Method® and Chrish!”
“Looking back to my first wary, but desperate climb up the stairs to your studio, it’s hard to remember that I accepted my stiffness, pain and imbalance as the expected result of aging and injury. Almost three years with you, relearning how to move my body with the Feldenkrais Method® has eliminated most of my symptoms plus given me more vitality and focus. It’s the best choice I could have made for myself. Thank you, Chrish!”
“I believe that my general well-being and overall fitness at 77 is due to my participation in Chrish’s Feldenkrais instruction for the past two and a half years. I am grateful.”
