Private Sessions with Ernie Adams

Private sessions can benefit you in many different ways. Below are some areas of application that I specialize in. Please contact me if you have any questions. Thanks.

User Friendly Pilates: Increase core strength with the proper awareness and mental focus to get stronger without getting hurt. 

Feldenkrais Functional Integration®: Sessions involve physical and verbal feedback and movement lessons designed to increase awareness of habitual postural/movement patterns that are limiting your ability. You will explore and learn easier, more functional, and less painful ways of being in your body.

Before & After Surgery: Pilates before hip, knee or back surgery, can help you be in good condition before surgery to insure a better outcome and recover lost ability after surgery.

Back Care: Learn what you need to know about recovering from a back injury. Discover the best ways to safely increase strength and flexibility, how to improve posture, lift properly, and move more efficiently in order to return to normal activity.

Fall Prevention/Improving Balance: Sharpen your balance reactions and develop strength and flexibility needed to improve balance and prevent falls. Learn how to protect yourself if you do fall, and how to get back up. Increase confidence and reduce the fear of falling so you can do more of the things you want to do.

Easy Walking: Walking is rhythm and flow in action and one of the best things you can do for your health. Easy walking consultations can help you find your natural stride and re-discovering the joy and ease in walking. If requested, sessions may include training in how to use Trekking Poles for fitness and safety.

Parkinson’s: The Feldenkrais Method® offers persons with Parkinson’s Disease a way to learn and implement action patterns that can improve functional abilities. For more information, please read my article: The Feldenkrais Method®&  Parkinson’s Disease-Ernie Adams

Multiple Sclerosis: With Feldenkrais®  you learn to move smarter, conserve energy, relax more deeply, and develop an inner adviser that lets you know when you need to rest or change how you are doing something. For more information, please read my article: Feldenkrais® & MS:  Discovering Movement Pathways-Ernie Adams\
