Awareness Through Movement

If you’re experiencing pain, Feldenkrais or Clinical Pilates with a Physiotherapist is a safer and more specific way to promote good postural awareness and re-train your core strength.

Established Since 2001
Currently the only practice in WA combining Physiotherapy, Feldenkrais and Pilates

Our qualified Feldenkrais Practitioners Jodie Krantz and Alison McIntosh are members of the Australian Feldenkrais Guild. Jodie has been recently been chairman and president of the Western Australian division.

Main Benefits

  • pain relief – reduce or eliminate persistent pain and tension
  • posture – discover effortless, efficient and comfortable posture
  • performance – more power without having to strengthen by improving efficiency
  • flexibility – greater range without stretching by efficient use of the whole body

Other Reported Benefits

  • breathe more easily
  • reduce stress and anxiety
  • improve balance and coordination
  • sleep more deeply and comfortably

Movement and posture are habitual. This means that much of the time we move automatically, without consciously thinking about it. Most methods of trying to change these habits don’t work. The reason is that we can’t consciously think about our posture for very long. As soon as we focus our attention on something else we slip back into old habits.

In Feldenkrais classes and individual sessions, we engage in a series of movement explorations. We improve our ability to sense new and more efficient movement options. We compare different ways of moving to find what is most comfortable. The process of learning expands the network of connections in the brain and nervous system.

Gradually we become more aware of subtler sensations. This allows us to notice sooner if we’re in an uncomfortable position. We can then change what we’re doing before pain or discomfort develop.

Clinical Studio Pilates

Independent Pilates Practice

Once you are proficient you can book into our studio and use the equipment regularly to practice your Pilates exercises independently. You can then go at your own pace and save money. Your Physio will review your progress and further develop your programme once every 5 weeks, or more often if required. Enquire by phone.

Group Pilates Classes

In our group floor pilates you will still get some individual attention from our physios. We watch you closely and know how to keep everyone safe during classes.

We do require you to come for an individual assessment before you start. But thats a plus because then we have some background on you and know what exercises will be effective or to be avoided.

That’s the difference we offer. Our physios are attentive and keep you in your safe zone. They will also mix in a bit of Feldenkrais to increase the learning value.

  • All classes led by an experienced Physiotherapist
  • Small groups – 6 to 10 participants in most classes, friendly relaxed atmosphere
  • Correct common muscle imbalances and relieve pain and tension
  • Suitable for those with mild to moderate pain
  • Most private health insurance companies offer a rebate if you have a medical reason for attending
