Jill Duran, GCFP
Jill first discovered the Feldenkrais Method® in 2002 while searching for relief from the aches and pains resulting from years of horseback riding. Increased comfort and an improvement in her riding sparked an interest in learning more about the Method and the human capacity to heal.

Feldenkrais, its not just for people!
Meet Oso and Moe
Oso and Moe our dynamic duo, our prized therapy dogs here at MoveDifferent. Their unsurpassed gentleness and patience make them perfect trust-building companions.
Animals live and communicate in the moment, unobstructed by limiting thoughts, because of this inefficient movement patterns can quickly dissolve into more novel and efficient patterns offering improved functioning and quality of movement.
Feldenkrais for Horses
Like us, horses develop habitual movement patterns arising from life experiences. Injury, trauma, poor self-use, and aging can cause compensatory movement patterns that restrict function. In addition, tissues can thicken into adhesions, interfering with proper function of joints and disrupting freedom of movement.
A Feldenkrais inspired session is tailored to the needs of the individual horse; through it one can establish, restore, or greatly improve movement.
Feldenkrais for Dogs
Jill has had the opportunity to work with many wonderful dogs, from small to large. Jill has worked with a variety of difficulties, including hip dysplasia, missing limbs, spinal abnormalities, and seizures, as well as, several working therapy dogs in need of a little “down time.”
