I have used a chiropractor most of my life, and much more in the last 5 years. I've had a difficult time to keep the spine aligned - I keep having set-backs; because of slipping on loose rock, standing stationary too long, or whatever. I was introduced to this class about 3 weeks ago. Even after the first class, I noticed a change. I did 3 classes, then did a 3000 mile road trip - and with no back issues. Then did another 3 classes, and then a European river cruise with lots of walking, along with the airline flight over and back (25- some hours total) without any back issues. I'm sold!

Dear Debra and Ann,
I have waited a week since the workshop you both taught at Juniper Wells Ranch to give a more accurate account of its benefits to me.
For me, the workshop has been life changing. And I mean that with deep sincerity.
For the last 20 years, I have wanted and “tried” to stay committed to regular yoga, mediation, and walking. And I haven’t had any consistency with any of these three desires. At best, my meditation was sporadic, my walks the same, and my yoga non-existent, despite having all three with regularity prior to 1999.
Whatever has been in the way of these practices has moved out of the way since last Saturday.
I am happily writing to tell you that every day, but one, since the workshop, I have done yoga and mediation . And for 5 out of the 8 days since the workshop, I have walked, gradually increasing distance.
And most importantly, my resolve to do these seems effortless....
So whatever was in the water there really worked for me!!
Really though, I have been sending you both gratitude for somehow being the sparks that ignited the easy commitment I now have to live my values for movement, flexibility, self care, and spiritual connection.

I really learned a lot about internalizing movements for more results. Amazing how a little bit more thought makes a big difference. Deborah Bedell, a student in the Yoga and Feldenkrais Workshop at

Oh myyyyyy…. I had to write to tell you how wonderful yesterday’s class was for me.
I felt like Gumby when we were done. WOW! I’ve never had such extreme release and
freedom, ever! I was completely absorbed during the ATM and had no trouble following.
it was paced elegantly. thank you dear one for your truly valuable contribution.
My normally-reactive and very anxious dog was so soothed by Debra’s calming voice that he spent the duration of the zoom class super relaxed, half-asleep and barely moving, as though he were meditating.
