Peggy Protz, Feldenkrais® Practitioner

Peggy has studied and taught a wide range of movement and exercise techniques. She holds a BFA in dance, was a Pilates instructor for 15 years, trained in yoga and massage, and has been a Guild Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner since 2001. Other techniques and approaches that have influenced her include the Alexander Technique, contact improvisation, free-form ecstatic dance, and a daily Zen-based meditation practice. Using the Feldenkrais Method, in addition to aspects of dance, pilates, and other modalities, Peggy helps people discover more pain free and comfortable ways of being in their body.

“I began Peggy's class last fall and with each class I became more and more pleased by how much easier my body moved than before. It's hard to remember when I have felt the ease of movement or the depth of stress relief that I receive from Peggy's Feldenkrais classes. Peggy has a great sense of humor and is fun and focused at the same time. I have practiced yoga for a number of years and Feldenkrais enhances and complements my yoga practice.” -A.B
