The Feldenkrais Method

The Feldenkrais Method® of somatic education uses movement and real-time body awareness to guide students toward positive changes.

The Method is founded on the belief that humans are exquisitely designed for continuous learning and expanding creative expression.

Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais developed his method over his 40-year career of rigorous scientific approach and research in physics, neuroscience, biomechanics, learning theory, human development, and martial arts: Dr. Feldenkrais was the first black belt karate master in the West. Behavioral and neuroscience and are just catching up with him now.

The Feldenkrais Method has helped people find new, whole-body ways to circumvent chronic pain. Performers of all types – musicians, actors, visual artists, dancers, and athletes of all sports – have discovered freer movement and fuller creative expression. People whose bodies are changing due to age, injury, pregnancy, recovery from an illness find they can reconnect with the things they love to do in new and fulfilling ways.

Here are what Health and Wellness Experts are saying about the Feldenkrais Method®:

Lisa Rein, The Washington Post, September 27, 2018:

“And at the end of that first [Feldenkrais Method] class, I was surprised: I felt a little different, lighter. I could turn my neck a bit more to the left. My right hip moved more freely.”

Jane Brody, New York Times, October 30, 2017:

“After two hourlong sessions focused first on body awareness and then on movement retraining [in the Feldenkrais Method], I understood what it meant to experience an incredible lightness of being.”
