Feldenkrais

100


100 simbi per session

One-on-one Feldenkrais lessons. Through a combination of gentle, non-invasive, informative touch and verbal questions and instructions, we’ll explore how you move. I will help you bring awareness and new movement to blind spots that are causing you discomfort. For example, you might have a spot in your back that always hurts because it never gets to move, or you might be experiencing knee pain because your knees and toes point in different directions. By unpacking the details of what's causing your discomfort, you are given useful information and tools to let you take control of how you move so you can be more comfortable.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

Rachel is such a kind and enjoyable person to be around. I went to her home and helped her prepare her yard for the upcoming season in exchange for ga...rdening information. I think I walked away with the better of the deal. I learned so much from talking with her that by the time I left her house I already had my vegetable garden planned and I also knew where I was going to purchase my plants from. Awesome person to work with. I would recommend her to anyone.show more

Rachel's requests


Rachel is requesting
Garden Help
I have a large yard and it gets a little overwhelming for me to take care of by myself. Company helps hugely! I can use help anytime but winter. Weeding, pruning, blackberry killing... I have tools...

I like making my work available to people who might not be able to afford to see me otherwise.

About Rachel Hamstra

The Feldenkrais Method of Somatic Education® uses experiential learning through sensations and perception to awaken your self-awareness and open up choices about how you move, think, and feel. Instead... of "fixing a problem", Feldenkrais looks at how you are doing something. By exploring a tiny piece of a movement, you can discover a curious and playful way of approaching the larger question of what is going on in your body. Rachel Hamstra, Guild Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner, has been a student of the Feldenkrais Method for over 20 years. Her first introduction to Feldenkrais was around age seven, while undergoing multiple hip surgeries through infancy and childhood. Functional Integration lessons became an essential part of her rehabilitation process, and Feldenkrais has been a part of her life ever since. As a practitioner, she is thrilled to have the opportunity to come full circle and share what she has learned. She finds joy in helping others find curiosity, hope, and ease in movement and life. She considers it her responsibility and honor to offer a space where her students feel safe to explore, and let that exploration go where it may. She is queer- and trans-friendly. Rachel graduated from the Seattle Eastside Feldenkrais Training in 2012.show more
