Portrait of Olivia Cheever Olivia Cheever: Mending the body by moving the mind
Quotes from Clients

Welcome
If you’ve found your way to a website about Feldenkrais Method®, Bones For Life®, and Leadership Embodiment work, you’re most likely someone who struggles with chronic pain or stress...or carries tension from huddling over a computer in a high-stress work environment...or reaches for peak performance as a leader, musician, health provider, athlete, equestrian, or dancer but finds your own body dynamics under pressure getting in your way.

I’m Olivia Cheever, and I teach these methods of somatic/movement awareness in order to help people learn to lead the lives they want. That can mean hitting a high note you’ve never been able to sing before, or standing up from a chair without your knees hurting, or being able to notice your body's immediate reaction to pressure and/or stress so you can do something about it before it takes over and overwhelms you!

It’s not a one-time fix I’m talking about, like feeling better when you get off a massage table but not knowing why, or how to keep from tensing up again. The message I want you to get is that change is possible, and you can be in charge of it.

"You can't change a system by fighting with it. You have to bring forth something else which makes it obsolete."
—Buckminster Fuller

"I am going to be your last teacher. Not because I'll be the greatest teacher you may ever encounter, but because from me you will learn how to learn. When you learn how to learn, you will realize that there are no teachers, that there are only people learning, and people learning how to facilitate learning." —Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais
