Pain, injury or limited mobility slowing you down? Feel like you just don't move like you used to?


At Movement Works we use a unique combination of movement and mindfulness to help you move better and feel better.  We give you the tools to build your confidence, improve your mobility and improve self-awareness. We help you undo movement habits that cause stress, pain and tension.  So you can do your everyday activities with ease and live the life you love. 

We offer a wide range of services to suit your situation, whether you are after an online class, an
in-person class or hands-on one-to-one help. 


Your body is designed to move, and move well. 


But sometimes it really doesn't feel like it!


Pain, injury, work, age can have an impact on how we move and how we feel.


We don't offer exercise in the traditional sense. Instead we help you become more self-aware so you can break the cycle of pain, tension and discomfort. You discover easy, natural and pain-free ways of doing your everyday activities like walking, turning, sitting, bending, lifting and reaching. 


Better movement is possible no matter what age or stage you start (and even when you have tried *everything* else).

Sarah makes classes fun and

interesting at the same time. I find it fascinating to learn how the smallest of movements can have such an impact on the way my body works. I have benefited from the classes and recommend them to everyone.

I was completely amazed at what Sarah had achieved in such a short time. I feel much more relaxed overall, not just in my shoulders. Sarah has given me fantastic tools to improve my overall wellbeing. Feldenkrais has improved my daily life tremendously!
