The Feldenkrais Method®

The Feldenkrais Method is an awareness-based and body-focused learning process that uses gentle movement explorations to help people find more comfortable, stress-free ways of moving and doing daily activities (or ANY movement, including breathing, walking, sitting, exercising).  It was developed by Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais (1904-1984), a physicist and judo master who taught himself to walk again after a disabling knee injury.  At age 50, Dr. Feldenkrais gave up his physics career and dedicated his last 30 years to developing and sharing his method.

The Feldenkrais Method can be experienced through:

  1. GROUP CLASSES:  You are verbally guided through gentle movement sequences called Awareness Through Movement┬« (ATM)  lessons.
  2. INDIVIDUAL SESSIONS: Movement is guided both verbally and with hands-on assistance (Functional Integration®).
