The Feldenkrais Method®

The Feldenkrais Method® uses gentle, dynamic movement with awareness to improve mobility, coordination, balance and sense of self. This method has a profound effect on one’s ability to act with precision, power, ease and spontaneity in daily life. A playful and accepting atmosphere allows individuals of all ages and abilities to enjoy learning at their own pace.

WHY FELDENKRAIS?
Moshe Feldenkrais believed in the capability of the human brain to learn and relearn at any age. Today, this is known as brain plasticity. He also knew that our brains and nervous systems could sense very subtle differences in our bodies, in our behavior and in the movements we make. His method uses slow, gentle movements to tap the full capacity of the brain to change, offering us more options in life and fewer restrictions in whatever we want to accomplish.

Praise for Feldenkrais

"After just a few moments of the Feldenkrais exercises, people often find themselves, as if by magic, easily doing things with their bodies that they never thought possible."
New Age Magazine

"I have long been intrigued by this subtle form of retraining the nervous system, which I recommend to patients whose movement has been restricted by injury, cerebral palsy, stroke, fibromyalgia, or chronic pain. I find it [The Feldenkrais Method] to be much more useful than standard physical therapy. I also believe that the Feldenkrais Method can help older people achieve greater range of motion and flexibility, and help all of us feel more comfortable in our bodies."
Andrew Weil, MD, Author of

"This is the most sophisticated and effective method I have seen for the prevention and reversal of deterioration of function. We're condemning millions of people to a deteriorated old age that's not necessary."
Margaret Mead, PhD, Anthropologist

"I have my life back. For five years, I could barely walk a city block. Now I climb flights of stairs! I used to walk into doorways, I was so unsteady, and with Feldenkrais I regained my balance. I could never have believed that I would be riding my bike again, and enjoying the freedom and ease I have today. I understand now that I can do something about my aches and pains, instead of thinking I have to bear with them as inevitable signs of aging."
