The Feldenkrais Method® is a powerful and revolutionary approach to improving your life that uses gentle, mindful movement to bring new awareness and possibility into every aspect of your life. Developed by Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais, the Feldenkrais Method has helped millions of people worldwide. Feldenkrais (sometimes called Feldenkrais therapy) is recognized for the strategies it employs to improve posture, flexibility, coordination, athletic and artistic ability and to help those with restricted movement, chronic pain and tension (including back pain and other common ailments), as well as neurological, developmental and psychological problems.

Feldenkrais explores the biological and cultural aspects of movement, posture and learning, and how our habits can constrain us to a small portion of our potential. Through our personal history, upbringing, culture, injuries, illness, etc., we each adopt patterns of physical and psychological behavior. These patterns are deeply embedded in our nervous system, and often become outmoded or dysfunctional, creating unnecessary physical, and psychological limitations. The Feldenkrais Method uses a process of organic learning, movement, and sensing to free you from habitual patterns and allow for new patterns of thinking, moving and feeling to emerge.

The Benefits of Feldenkrais exercises are:

  • Ability to move more easily and comfortably.
  • Improved co-ordination, posture and flexibility.
  • Relief from aches and pains.
  • Reduced stress and improved relaxation.
  • Ability to restore lost function.
  • Renewed physical vitality, and emotional well-being.
  • Ability to avoid injury and recover more quickly from them.
  • Greater ease and pleasure in all your physical activities.
  • Improved fitness and agility of your brain.
  • Restored confidence in one’s balance and stability.
