Dale Jensen is a Guild Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner and owner of MICHIGAN Feldenkrais in Ann Arbor, Michigan. He has a long-standing interest in teaching, movement, well-being, and healing. Dale is passionate about helping his students learn to be at home and at ease in their body. He believes everyone can learn to move with more efficiency and pleasure.
He was drawn to the Feldenkrais Method as a result of a knee injury while training for the Portland, Oregon marathon. While conventional medicine, physical therapy, and acupuncture were important components of Dale's healing, it was the Feldenkrais Method that taught Dale new patterns of walking and running to prevent repeating the same injury.
Dale also found relief from repetitive strain while working in IT in Seattle. The combined stresses of computing, bicycle commuting, and holding a young child contributed to chronic pain in Dale's arms and hands. Feldenkrais lessons taught Dale to use his arms with greater lightness and ease by connecting his arms to his core.
In his free time, Dale enjoys hiking, kayaking, exploring the aerial arts and learning to play pickleball.
Dale served on the Board of Directors for the Feldenkrais Guild of North America (FGNA) for three terms and on the Board of Directors for the Feldenkrais Education Foundation of North America (FEFNA) for one term.
