Welcome to New Step Forward
New Step Forward offers movement education according to the Feldenkrais Method.
The Feldenkrais method is intended for people of all ages. It is about a physical liberation that improves your mood and quality of life. It engages you in a fascinating journey to explore your body and your ability to move. The process has a direct and strong impact because it changes a person’s self image in regards to their possible movements. It can help you restore pain-free movement at any age or condition, recover from injuries, and release stress and chronic pain. It is often used by athletes who are interested in improving their performance and by people who’s work requires physical effort. The Feldenkrais Method provides support for both.
The strength of the method is in the direct dialogue with the portion of our brain that is in-charge of the movement. It involves very gentle work. The change occurs at a deep level and often people report that it occurred suddenly and that they found themselves doing things they couldn’t do before. Through the change in the body the work can impact your emotional state, your relations with others, and much more.
Our introductory package includes a 10-12 week personal training program that includes 6-8 personal sessions and complementary work in small groups. We offer home visits for people who are recovering from injuries or surgeries.
The first year in the life of every human being is crucial to the development of their motor skills. This is why we also offer Feldenkrais movement education for babies and their parents.
We are located in Summerland, B.C. and serve clients in the Southern Interior of B.C. and the Okanagan Valley.
… one visit generated a big improvement. The back pain almost disappeared, and my knee problem became more localised and manageable…
