What People say about Al's teaching

“Al is amazingly good at guiding you into states of ease, clarity, comfort, and freedom of movement that may have been constrained by years of habitual patterns. His methods are therapeutic and effective. You can feel the difference and it feels good.”

Dave DiRito, M.A.

“In my thirty-plus​ years as an educator, I never taught or mentored a teacher as dedicated or effective as Al. Al’s level of mastery translates to a happy, healthy, active, life long learner of seventy-seven years that attempts to attend a class taught by Al every week. Thank you, Al, for the joy that you bring to my life.

Jean Rice / Retired Teacher

“I’m feeling differences in all my everyday movements like getting up and down off the couch and moving in the kitchen getting dinner. I was looking for a little relief; I didn’t know I would get a transformation.”

Lea Murray / Longmont, CO

What are Feldenkrais class lessons?

Feldenkrais class lessons are called Awareness Through Movement which is a series of verbally guided, gentle, slow and organized movements typically done on the floor in a group setting. Lessons may also be done sitting or standing. These lessons guide students’ awareness toward sensing their own movement patterns, exploring new ways of moving, and integrating more choice into their movement habits.

No prior experience is necessary. People of all ages and skill level are welcome. Lessons are taught to all levels. Bring your curiosity and wear comfortable clothing. Mats are provided. If you want extra support for your neck or shoulder, feel free to bring a towel.

The Eyes


Explore several key functions of the eyes through movement and imagination - saccades, smooth tracking movements, convergence, and divergence.


This lesson creates a powerful ease and openness through the entire chest and back. Movements of the spine through the chest help to differentiate ribs and vertebra.


This lesson is an exploration of the movements of flexion. This creates length in the front of us and eases the muscular work of the back.
