"The Bones for Life classes with Sonja have changed my whole outlook on aging.
Thanks to this brilliant set of exercises, instead of feeling that I am slowly declining, I now have a
sense of ongoing physical improvement. After each class, I can feel some improvement in whatever
neuro-muscular pattern we've explored. I stand up after we complete the sequence, and almost
as if by magic, something feels better, more right, in the way I walk, sit, turn, stand, etc. And the improvement has been cumulative over time. Sonja creates an enchanted, almost meditative experience with her soothing voice, perfectly timed instructions, and deep knowledge of the human body and its working. This is a subtle kind of bodywork, but it's extraordinarily effective."

-- Cynthia, Librarian/writer, 55

“Sonja and Anastasi are delightful Bones For Life trainers, with inspiring enthusiasm
and fine tuned caring for the inner dynamics that make the difference.
Their presence is conveying the Biological Optimism of this program."

Ruthy Alon, creator of Bone for Life

"What makes Sonja and Anastasi such wonderful BONES FOR LIFE trainers is not only the clarity with which they present the processes, and their solid understanding of anatomy, but their energy that infuses each class with excitment. As a future BONES FOR LIFE teacher, I was especially interested in how they dealt with students' difficulties; both were able to quickly and ingeniously invent
modifications and thus support everyone's learning."

Suzanne Toren, Actor and Feldenkrais Practitioner, NYC

I took my first Feldenkrais class on a whim, about six years ago.  I’d had a daily yoga practice for many years and thought nothing could give me much additional control or comfort.  Although I was a bit skeptical as I went through the class, (I couldn’t quite believe that something that seemed so subtle, with minimal effort, would produce much effect.) I was astounded at the conclusion of the lesson.  My body felt transformed, especially my feet.  It seemed as if they met the ground completely, with an ease and sensitivity I could not remember.  I was immediately convinced Feldenkrais was a worthwhile pursuit and a perfect complement to my yoga practice. Feldenkrais is a great gift, and Sonja is a terrific teacher.
