Functional Integration® Online Lessons
(September 2020)


Would you like some support with an issue or goal? Are you wondering how to go about starting or deepening your Feldenkrais practice? I’d love to help if I can, and have opened some time on my schedule for one-on-one sessions on Zoom.


10am-2pm PDT


(If you need to meet later in the day or on the weekend, please email me and we’ll set something up.)

Tell me what you’d like to address in advance or we can play it by ear when we meet, and we’ll talk/listen/move for 30 minutes up to an hour.

I’m offering these lessons by donation.





“When I fell and badly injured my back in 2016, Alice was instrumental in my healing. Four years later it’s my shoulder, and again—but now through Zoom while the pandemic keeps me at home—she has taught me ways of using slow, small, gentle, and careful movements that provide much relief from significant pain. Alice’s healing care is not only about what she knows, but also about who she is as a human being. I am grateful.”

– Andrea H.

Thank you to all who joined me at the November 27th MightWe event!




Sharing my passion for Feldenkrais, Mindfulness, and Gratitude was a deeply rewarding experience… and so much fun too!  🙏
