"Russell is a True teacher
- Ram Das, (Dr. Richard
Alpert, PhD), Spiritual Teacher
"In Russell, two
streams meet: Zen and Moshe Feldenkrais. He weaves them into a uniquely
powerful, transformative teaching where mind, body and spirit evolve
together. The movements are wonderful and, even more, Russell touches
deeply into the soul. I highly recommend this approach."
- Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi
"I highly recommend
Russell Delman's teaching. His approach can help prevent injury
and accelerate the recovery process."
- Dr Maury Harwood, MD,
Orthopedic Surgery and Sports Medicine
"Russell's dynamic talks
and movement lessons are deeply effective; this teaching has really
changed my life. I recommend it to my patients, my friends, everybody
who wants their life transformed."

of "Healing Bridge", Feldenkrais Practitioner
"Loved it. "
-Margaret Ann Zern
"My physio-therapist recommended
this series. It is excellent. Having had 4 children this has helped
my body. I would recommend this to everyone, male or female.
What is best of this series is how well Deborah knows the body and explains
each step precisely and concisely. My energy level has increased. I
feel great. These directions are helping to alleviate back
pain due to curvature. The toning helps with weight-loss also. Great
Job, Deborah. I'm highly recommending this to all my friends and acquaintances.
Thanks so much."
"This set of lessons is truly
awesome. The instructions are clear and concise and easy to follow.
I have heard of using the pelvis or using my center or developing my
core muscles but I have never been given the specific details of the
floor of the pelvis. After doing these lessons, my balance and centering
for ice-skating is dramatically improved. An added benefit is the absence
of needing to get up in the middle of the night to urinate."
"This CD can be used by anyone
regardless of age or health issues. It is great for pain relief and
is very relaxing. I walk a lot and have noticed that my movements
are easier and more efficient since I started doing these lessons."
-Joyce Louks br>
is the most amazing and profound work and yet the movements are
so simple. I have used this CD for the past 2 years to be more supple,
comfortable and active. I fly 150,000 miles a year for my work and these
simple movements allow me to be comfortable in a body that has several
compressed discs and other aches and pains expected at the age of 54.
If you can't be a private client of Deborah's this is the next best
- Regina Phelps
"I'm a lawyer and writer who uses
the computer a lot and my career nearly came to a halt because of serious,
persistent tendonitis. The most successful therapy I received was from
Feldenkrais Practitioners® like Cliff, and I've stayed healthy by attending
classes and listening to these CDs. Feldenkrais® is a whole-body approach that is extremely
effective and works especially well for me because it's gentle,
intellectually engaging, and something I can do on my own time."
- Maureen Mason
"I spend many long hours at the
computer and have struggled for years with pain and tension in my back,
shoulders, and arms. I've tried a lot of different therapies, but Feldenkrais®--especially
under the tutelage of Cliff Smyth--has been by far the most helpful.
This great CD series makes it possible for you to do the simple but
amazingly effective Feldenkrais® movement exercises in your own home, on
your own schedule. It's the best investment you can make for your
health and comfort."
"Working with Lavinia and The
Feldenkrais Method® has helped me do things I only dreamed about
~ Kathy Zasloff
"Arthritis in my hip nearly
ended my career. Lavinia taught me how to reduce my pain and play
even better than before. Life without Feldenkrais is not living."
~ Gloria Carter, Over 55 National
"Last year at this time
I was in bad shape. Lots of pain and no way to understand and correct
it. What can I say but I feel great one year later. Without your
insight and guidance I would not have the tools to keep my body in balance
and healthy. Yippee.... It's really great. Thanks again, "
~ Lew Gelfond, Musician
"Working with Lavinia has
helped me tremendously. I have learned to decrease my low back and shoulder
discomfort. Learning to use my mind's eye to increase my awareness is
even more valuable. I feel much more integrated - physically, mentally
~ Debbie Lawler, R.N.
"I just had to call and
tell you what happened when I came home from our session! You know how
I love to dance. But for my whole life, whenever I tried to twirl, I
could only twirl in one direction, I always lost my balance in the other
direction. Well, guess what! I´m twirling in both directions! And
it´s so easy, now I can´t even remember which side wouldn´t
twirl before! Thank you, I feel so excited!"
