About the Feldenkrais Method®
What is Feldenkrais®?
The Feldenkrais Method uses slow and precise movement sequences to engage your brain through your body and nervous system. Through your neuromuscular system it activates more parts of your brain by helping your muscles move outside of their habitual pattern.
Feldenkrais movement sequences are all about learning to make movement easier, all the time. They have a practical focus and result in better functioning in everyday activities. Find out more...
Group Classes (Awareness through Movement®)
In a group class you are guided through a series of movements that promote a relaxed yet focused state. The movements enable you to understand and modify your habitual movement patterns, which may have developed in response to injury or restricted posture. A non-judgmental atmosphere allows people of all ages and abilities to learn at their own pace. Find out more... (including video)
Individual lessons (Functional Integration®)
Your teacher will design each lesson around your particular movement habits and needs at the time. You will sit or lie on a low padded table, comfortably clothed, while the practitioner guides your movements through gentle touch. Lessons are especially good for addressing long-term problems, and for enhancing your learning in group classes. Find out more... (including video)
