YOU ARE CONSTANTLY WRITING THE STORY
OF YOUR BODY IN MOVEMENT ON THIS EARTH. SO MAKE IT A GOOD ONE.
I'm Ray Sylvester.
Movement coach, storycrafter, generalist, ancestral health devotee, and continuous learner.
I'm a practitioner of the Feldenkrais Method
a powerful somatic approach that uses gentle movement and directed attention to expand movement possibilities.
I'm also a writer, editor, and teacher
who understands the power of narrative and a big-picture approach in reshaping your life.
MOVE INTO YOUR TRUTH
Unlocking your capacity for intuitive movement means honoring three things: Your body, your environment, and your narrative about yourself and your place in the world. Here are a few things that are really important in helping you do that:
The foundation of a well-organized neuromuscular system and a prerequisite for learning.
Life’s too short to not be learning all the time. Being close-minded only gets in the way.
Nature = Necessity
A body divorced from nature is limited in its capacity for health, strength, and optimal movement.
Life Is Movement
You never stop moving. A simple concept with profound implications.
We can always use more joy—and levity can help unlock even greater possibilities.
Because of a sports injury in my teens, I now live with chronic hip pain from advanced degenerative arthritis. The only exercise my body can handle is walking for 15 minutes a day because of the impact on my joints.
Working with Ray has made me aware of the unnecessary tension I hold in my body, and after one session, I went on my first 30-minute walk in 18 years.
Through continued sessions with Ray, I’ve learned how to manage my pain and rely less on medication. Even though my condition is irreversible, I have more mobility today than in a long time. I’m grateful for his patience, and for giving me the tools to live a freer, more relaxed life.Panayiotis Karabetis, Baltimore, MD
