Move with Ease: The Feldenkrais Method

Jacqueline Rubinstein is dedicated to creative, powerful, healing movement that makes you feel good. She has been a mover and a shaker in the Improvisational Dance and Feldenkrais Method scenes since 2004. She is the proud director of SomaSpace: Movement Arts & Healing Center, and Move With Ease, her Chronic Pain & Repetitive Injury Recovery Practice.

She has been dancing since 1994 and really fell deeply in love with the innovative and life-affirming world of Improvisational Movement in 2003. Completing a degree in Improvisationally-based Choreography at Wesleyan University gave Jacqueline a strong foundation in teaching creative movement to folks with diverse backgrounds. She has led hundreds of creative and somatic movement classes.

After a severe concussion and a pinched nerve, Jacqueline was incredibly blessed to find the Feldenkrais Method. Lost and frustrated after all the traditional Western forms of healing were insufficient, she tried an introductory Feldenkrais workshop on a whim, and she fell in love!

The powerfully gentle and insightful somatic education of the Feldenkrais Method has been an incredible learning journey, leading her to become a practitioner and open her Feldenkrais practice, Move With Ease, in Portland, Oregon in 2011. She also serves as the Outreach Director for the Feldenkrais Method Professional Training Programs.

She specializes in helping folks suffering from chronic pain and repetitive injuries to make foundational changes to their movement patterns creating fundamental, lasting relief in many aspects of their lives. For more information about Move With Ease, please visit: www.FeldenkraisPortland.com

Combining her passions for Improvisational Movement and the Feldenkrais Method, housed in the gorgeous SomaSpace studio, has been a dream come true! Balancing the gentle, slow, Ying-quality movements of Feldenkrais with the limitless, creative, Yang-quality movements of Improvisational Movement has brought great joy and healing to Jacqueline’s life, and she looks forward to sharing her passion with you through her classes, events, and individual sessions.

She utilizes a wide range of massage techniques, with her specialty based on a style known as Esalen massage, a variation on regular Swedish massage, incorporating long, flowing strokes, firm kneading, pressure point work, all to a nurturing pace and appropriate depth. Her massages are a smooth blend of learned technique and personal attentiveness, integrating and grounding for the whole human being – an approach that makes her an excellent introduction to therapeutic massage for first timers as well as established clients.

Her interests and hobbies include hiking, yoga, art, volunteering, being near the ocean and other healing waters. Jane and her husband also enjoy motorcycle riding, spending time with family, and working on home projects.

Jane believes strongly that massage is an important element of a balanced health care regimen and not just a luxury. She has seen her work make a real difference in the lives of her clients over time; helping to reduce stress, migraines, neck and back tension, joint pain; chronic aches as well as acute problems. Incorporating many techniques including the Esalen and Swedish styles, Reflexology techniques, Aromatherapy, Hot Stones, and Pre-Natal Massage, she will customize the massage session to individual client needs.

With caring, nurturing touch, let Jane help you achieve deep relaxation, stress reduction, muscle tension and pain relief – you deserve it!

Eliana Miranda

Eliana Miranda, MPH.,  is a certified health and wellness coach, lifestyle medicine coach, yoga teacher and energy worker. Her study of health began at a young age when she was diagnosed with a chronic auto-immune disease, and has since devoted her life to understanding the dynamic relationship between the mind, body and soul. By immersing herself in various avenues of healing, she cultivates a practice that ebbs and flows with the cyclical patterns of our modern day life.

This work is for anyone feeling disconnected, and looking for some intuitive guidance to rediscover their own power to make change…

To feel better in the body: have more energy, feel lighter, or simply come into relation with their physical frame.

To feel freer in the mind: experiencing true happiness, passion, and zest for life.

To understand the greater picture. To define questions, understand why’s, and come into awareness of the greater purpose.

If it is one of these things, or all of these things, this work can help to connect the dots.

With a master’s degree in health promotion and behavioral sciences, an in-depth study of ancient Ayurvedic lifestyle treatments, and an unwavering devotion to teach, learn, and connect with others, Eliana is committed to empowering her clients to be their best selves so they can live their very best lives.

“The past is the conflict of power over and power under.  The future is power with.”

Tyson Wilson

Personal Empowerment Coach

Tyson Wilson is a dyed-in-the-wool advocate for self-empowerment and the liberation of the human spirit from all forms of unhealthy external control.  For each client, his goal is to cooperatively seek an answer to the questions: “What gets in the way of you living out your highest purpose?”, and  “What is the exact kind of help that you need to shift those things, and how can we collaboratively set that up?”

To that end, Tyson offers his assistance through a variety of skills and strategies, which are always aspiring to practical effectiveness and simplicity. These include: focused attention and counseling, personal growth coaching, energy work/reiki, sound-healing, song-weaving, intuitive storytelling, and shamanic journeying.  These offerings are the result of a decade of experimenting with and utilizing various personal growth tools on himself and others in community, attending various classes and workshops, and engaging in and teaching the practice of co-counseling.  They are also, in their diversity, an implicit acknowledgement that each of us is both uniquely gifted and uniquely challenged and, as such, we need a flexible and varied approach to truly bring about change in our lives.

The aim of each session is to create a safe space for restorative empathy, emotional expression, critical re-thinking, creativity, and relaxation.  Long-term goals for individuals are increased emotional fitness, better resilience to everyday stress factors, improved self-confidence, and an up-tick in imagination and inspiration.
