“To someone who has never tried it, Feldenkrais seems strange, because it doesn’t involve straining. All of my experiences with exercising involve trying hard, and if I feel like I’m about to pass out at the end, it means I have succeeded. Feldenkrais is different. It is about gently introducing new possibilities for movement and listening to what your body tells you. After my first class I felt like a huge weight had been lifted. It was like a preview of how I could feel if life continued moving in this direction. It felt like joy, and I was surprised because I thought the days of feeling that were behind me. My goal now is to continue with Feldenkrais and develop new habits that stick. Angela is encouraging, and I look forward to working with her.”
“I love her warm sense of humor. Her patience and listening are extraordinary and outstanding. No doubt there will be many lucky people who Angela will touch and enrich.”
“I had left hip pain for the last 6 months. Since the workshop, I haven’t needed any extra body pillow support. I have been pain-free all week. I didn’t need a new mattress: I needed a new me! It’s truly remarkable such simple movements have such a large impact. Can’t wait for another workshop!”

About me

If you are ready to engage in discovering your own potential, I'm eager to work with you.

Together we'll investigate your movement habits. We'll find patterns which don't serve you any longer. Perhaps they're causing pain or limiting mobility. Or you're ready to move beyond your current limits.

I continue to use the Feldenkrais Method® to refine my own movement. To improve my walking and dancing. And to build strength more efficiently with yoga. Like many of my clients, I’ve had various injuries and “niggles”—torn meniscus, sciatica, neck pain. Each is an opportunity to discover patterns which helped create the difficulties.

My studies and interests have led me towards making the practice and teaching of Feldenkrais a way of life. Majoring in biology and philosophy in college. Being involved in performing arts all my life. Loving to walk and bike. The practice of meditation. Being inspired by my parents to always ask, “how can I be of service?”

Since 1996, Feldenkrais has been an essential part of my life, whether attending Awareness Through Movement® classes, training to be a teacher, and now as instructor and advanced student.

“Being in class with Angela and others who are seeking relief, connection, peace, dexterity, awareness in body, mind, heart/soul is the highlight of my week! Angela is always graciously direct in her focus while being lighthearted, joyful, and a constant committed partner and guide Awareness Through Movement classin our exploration of the mind/body connections we are discovering moment by moment, movement by movement. If you have one sliver of curiosity or interest in Feldenkrais or how to find peace or relief in your body, RUN to Dallas Feldenkrais! You will find a new relationship with your body here! It has totally changed my yoga practice and the way I enjoy moving and dancing!”
“The two series I took with Angela were amazing and definitely made me more aware of how I use my body. I got pain relief and was able to discontinue daily Advil. It was also extremely relaxing, which means a lot to me. As she guides you through the small movements, her calming voice adds to the experience. I intend to take more classes and highly recommend them.”
