Mimi Rosa,New Jersey

I came to your Feldenkrais training program a different person than I am now. I had no idea of the possibilities and the choices that now exist for me. I feel my fear to be myself falling away and I am willing to try things I never thought I would try. I am hugely happy.
Debbie Visceglia

I took the training for my own well being, hoping that I would learn to move more easily and with greater flexibility. To my surprise, amazement and delight, I discovered that I do have more flexibility, not only in my body, but in every aspect of my life. The Feldenkrais Training Program with David has profoundly changed my life.
Mary Ann de Trana, Richmond, VA

Participating in the Feldenkrais Training with David is a fantastic experience of learning, exploring, and discovery. I’m aware of enhanced abilities in all areas of my life… the benefits of improved performance appear in many new, unexpected and enjoyable ways.
Jaclyn Boone, Princeton, NJ

Since graduating, not a day has gone by whereby I do not think of and use some aspect of the training and the Feldenkrais Method. I want to congratulate you on your pedagogy and style of teaching. It encourages without pushing, it alerts without alarming, it satisfies without self-indulgence. It builds the solid framework, lesson by lesson, so the student scarcely notices the method, until the unmistakable occurs: the function returns, the inhibition melts away, and efficient movement takes over, leaving inefficient habit with no good reason to exist.  Thank you.
John Charles Murphy, Member of Mummenschanz
