When we haven’t had a taste of something better, we may think that yoga is supposed to be hard, difficult, even painful. Frequently we use more effort than is needed and don’t realize it. We can use the work of Moshe Feldenkrais to change this, to more clearly sense how we are moving. As we do, we begin to experience the yoga postures as dynamic, rejuvenating and endlessly interesting. Flow, fluidity, and flexibility—supple strength and repose-in-action—become our experience of Yoga. All levels of experience are welcome.
Questions? Contact Liz Anema at 952-930-8528 or Nick Strauss-Klein at 612-412-8060, or email Nick.
I find that because of Kevin’s approach, I’m able to do postures that I haven’t been able to do previously. It’s great!

A student in Nick’s Feldenkrais classes at The Marsh, Amanda Straka, 38, RYT, CPT, Thai Massage Therapist, says
I found Nick’s course valuable and eye opening. I am a instructor of movement myself, and this was my first experience with the Feldenkrais Method. It was a holistic and enlightening way to engage body/mind/breath connection. Nick is incredibly knowledgeable about his material, clear and concise in his direction, and truly passionate about what he teaches. No matter what your moving and/or healing path is, try his class, it open a whole new awareness for you.
