“The very first time I experienced a Feldenkrais session with Joan, I knew that a significant before-and-after point in my life had been reached. She has literally begun to put me fully back into my body, to reassemble, to reintegrate parts that over time had become scattered and lost. Her work has brought me renewed vitality and a sense of nearly unlimited possibilities for moving through and engaging with the world. I am hooked.”  Barbara
