Julie, of Smooth Moves Lab

Julie Wrigley runs her Feldenkrais practice - Smooth Moves Lab - in the beautiful city of York.

Her aim is for everyone to be able to improve their movement intelligence, to find how to move with more fluency and skill. This applies equally to someone recovering from pain, injury or stress; to a busy person wanting to be more in tune with their physical self; or to a performer or athlete looking for further refinements in their movement skills.

She has never deemed herself ‘sporty’, though she has enjoyed dancing, yoga, windsurfing, martial arts and walking. For ten years Awareness Through Movement classes taught her how to balance the effects of a sedentary job - stress, stiff neck, shoulders and a sore back. She has enjoyed becoming more attuned to her own movement patterns and learning how to help herself with aches and pains. Best of all is the free and weightless feeling that comes at the end of a lesson.

Julie has trained on the Feldenkrais Professional Training in London for three years and is qualified as a student teacher of Awareness Through Movement. At the end of the four-year, 800 hour training, in 2020, she will be a full Feldenkrais practitioner - also offering individual hands-on Functional Integration lessons.
