About Valérie


My name is Valérie Fabre and I have Headshots-By Richard Boland-BW-30 November 2013-033been involved with the Feldenkrais Method for more than twenty five years.

I graduated from a professional training in Paris in 2006, with Myriam Pfeffer, who was a member of the first group of teachers trained by Moshe Feldenkrais in the 1960s.

I discovered the Feldenkrais Method in 1990, in the USA. An initial workshop got me started on a new path towards self growth.  Coming out of decades of “corrective” physiotherapy to deal with asthma and the correlated back problems, the Feldenkrais Method has led me to appreciate the benefits of a harmonious dialogue between bones and muscles.  During my training, I have learned that wherever there is a limitation, there is an invitation for learning, for opening, for improving, for changing.

What appeals to me most in the Feldenkrais Method, is its gentle and supportive approach. We start with people where they are, and help them become aware of where they are so they can go from there to somewhere new.  Somewhere that is a more functional place from which they can enjoy doing all the things they love doing. Somewhere that is a more neutral place, a place of restful readiness for action. A place to retreat to, a place to act from.

Some of my other interests are working with pastels, writing, singing, improvising, going to the theatre and performing!
