The Feldenkrais Method is a highly respected and rapidly growing method in the emerging field of somatic education. It is unique in that it is based on sound mechanical and neurological principles and yet easily accessible through simple, practical lessons.
Based on the work of Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais (1904-1984) and influenced by his expertise in physics, engineering and judo, the method draws together both the science and the art of human movement.
It is an educational method with the focus on learning through developing awareness.
This approach has a broad range of applications as it may reveal and alter behaviours responsible for chronic tension and pain; it can facilitate recovery of movement restricted by injury or trauma and it can improve skills for professionals in Theatre, Sports, Dance and Music.
At the same time it is a valuable learning tool for everyday life.
