Jill Duran, GCFP

Over three decades of experience, expertise and ongoing education in movement studies

Jill discovered the Feldenkrais Method® in 2002 and has continued to develop her sensory and nonverbal communication skills by working with many different people, dogs, and horses.  She continues to deepen her understanding of healing, self-discovery and the Feldenkrais Method through advanced coursework and trainings. Currently, Jill is studying Argentine Tango, Craniosacral therapy, trauma informed horsemanship, polyvagal theory, and equestrian arts to develop and inform her sensitivity and awareness of habitual movement patterns in herself and her clients.  Jill believes that variation is at the heart of evolution.

About The Method®

We all have habitual movement patterns arising from our life experiences, including injury, occupation, and trauma.  Although these events subside, many of the compensatory movement patterns remain.  Rather than “fixing” or “aligning” the body, the Feldenkrais Method  teaches or conveys to the learner how to expand our abilities and ranges of choice.  It is not about finding aligned balance but about understanding relationships and compulsion in movement, action and thought. 

All human action includes movement and orientation.  We orient in our surroundings both in space and time and we move ourselves.  The Feldenkrais Method®  assists in developing the “Lived Body,” enabling us to embody our lives and thrive.  As a Study of One—the Method guides us out of a framework of rigid techniques, limiting stories, and diagnoses—into the experience of kinesthetic learning, curiosity, and awareness.  This clarity in embodiment brings coordination in movement and a feeling of trust in one’s abilities, qualities, and judgment.
