I’m Beth Rubenstein.. and I am in the business of Health and Vitality!
Two surgeons told me that I needed major neck and back surgery immediately. I had been in the healing profession for 40 years and helped people avoid this very thing – surgery.
How could this apparent devastation to my spine have happened to me? After my car accident I was scared and humbled by this prognosis. I just wanted to get better and continue my dancing and my work. I provide an opportunity for you to discover ways to move and think so you can stay fit and active. Disability, pain, and creakiness can inhibit your ability to do the activities you love and keep you from being happy. I understand these things more than anyone, not simply because I am qualified, but because I have lived through this pain myself. I understand how your body and life can be unfair and I can teach you to learn to overcome that.
I can teach you to move without pain. You can learn how to look for, and find, happiness and vitality. My 40 years as a physical therapist to the work of Moshe Feldenkrais, has led me to create a way for people to explore how they move, feel, think, and act. My PT education gave me thorough understanding of the skeleton, muscles, joints, nerves, and how disabilities and injuries can affect those parts of the body. Studying the Feldenkrais Method has given me an expanded understanding of the nervous system and how the brain can change through specific movement.
When your body feels better, you experience life in a more full and complete way. This allows you the space to move from living and simply dealing with pain and dis-ease into a life of physical ease, and thus, mental ease with creativity, and passion. Move beyond your health goals, experience being in the shape that allows you to live your bigger hopes and dreams again. Let me show you how to stay fit, figure out the best way for you to exercise, learn to do activities you feel you can’t, no matter the cause.
Not only will you be able to move better and function the way you want, but – you will discover how to live your dream and your passion! This work helps keep zest for life alive. The work of Feldenkrais has helped me reignite that passion for life, and that is what I love to share with those I serve.

Make the impossible, possible, the possible easy, and the easy, elegant
– Moshe Feldenkrais
I have been doing this work for over 25 years and I plan to keep doing it.
My job is so exciting! I can provide an opportunity for you to discover ways to move and think so that you can feel better than you have for years. I love that! I get to share ways of growing and regaining vitality that really work. Our physical bodies are directly connected to our happiness. Not only am I helping you move better and function the way you want – I’m helping you live your dream and your passion! This work helps keep passion for life alive. The work of Feldenkrais has helped me reignite that passion for life, and that is what I love to share with those I serve.
How did I get my life back, start tap dancing and running again. I started doing what I had done with so many others in my practice. I began doing my own work, both with a trusted colleague and with myself through Awareness Through Movement®. I have had the opportunity to feel out how truly amazing this work is for myself. It has now been over a year of me doing my Feldenkrais work diligently. My neurosurgeon is totally astonished at my progress. I no longer have any tingling and numbness in my arms or legs, and my spine is stabilizing and healing far beyond my surgeon’s expectations. I am working and playing again. I have even been able to return my other passion in life – dancing.
