The Feldenkrais Method

 

  • Discover a more effective way to improve how you feel and move.
  • Overcome pain, injury, and performance limitations.
  • Improve agility, flexibility, balance, posture, and power.
  • Expand your repertoire of easy, coordinated movements.
  • Experience the Feldenkrais Method.

The Feldenkrais Method®of movement education is a remarkably effective approach to learning how to move with greater coordination and ease. Developed by renowned physicist, mechanical engineer, and judo master Moshe Feldenkrais (1904-1984), the method is used to help people improve their performance of everyday activities as well as specialized skills.

The method uses two types of lessons: group classes called Awareness Through Movement®(ATM)  and individual, hands-on lessons called Functional Integration®(FI). Both kinds of lessons engage your nervous system in an intriguing and surprising learning process. The lessons help you form a larger, clearer sensory image of how you're structured and the range of efficient movements possible for your structure.

The changes that occur during a lesson feel good. If you're suffering from pain, you're likely to experience significant pain-relief during and following a lesson. With regular practice of the Feldenkrais Method®, you can also expect to experience cumulative, lasting improvement in your ability to do whatever you want to do with ease and without causing or aggravating pain and injury.
