Online Feldenkrais Private Sessions
Private Feldenkrais sessions available in person or Online. Private instruction is a great introduction to the practice as well as a way to deepen your existing understanding of this deeply mindful modality.
Anyone-young or old, physically challenged or physically fit–can benefit from the Method. Feldenkrais is beneficial for those experiencing chronic or acute pain of the back, neck, shoulder, hip, legs or knee, as well as for healthy individuals who wish to enhance their self-image. The Method has been very helpful in dealing with central nervous system conditions such as multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, and stroke. Musicians, actors and artists can extend their abilities and enhance creativity. Many Seniors enjoy using it to retain or regain their ability to move without strain or discomfort.
Uwe Mester brings the compassion of someone who has suffered back pain and surgery and emerged into health. His clarity and good cheer uplift every class.
Uwe Mester took his first Feldenkrais® lesson in 1997 after recovering from lower back surgery. After unsuccessful rehabilitation attempts with both traditional (medical) and non-traditional methods, Uwe explored the Feldenkrais Method®. His pain symptoms immediately decreased, and he developed a deeper interest in this form of somatic education.
In 2001, Uwe began a four-year training in Germany with Dr. Chava Shelhav (Israel), one of just a few remaining original students of Moshe Feldenkrais, the Method’s founder. Uwe has been a licensed Feldenkrais Practitioner since 2005, teaching both Awareness through Movement®(group classes) and Functional Integration® (individual classes).
He continued his study with Senior Feldenkrais Trainers Yvan Joly (Montreal), Carl Ginsberg (Frankfurt) and Larry Goldfarb (California).
In addition to his Feldenkrais® training, Uwe also holds Master’s Degrees in Education and Social Work. As a social worker, he worked with diverse populations in a variety of settings including: a substance use disorder Therapeutic Community in New York City, and in Germany, a school for special needs children, a group home for juvenile delinquents, and a correctional facility.
In early 2008, Uwe and his family relocated from Wiesbaden, Germany, to Charlotte, Vermont. Since September 2009, he has been teaching the Feldenkrais Method in the greater Burlington/Middlebury area in Vermont and Lake Placid, New York.
