The Feldenkrais Method® teaches—through movement—how we can improve our capabilities to function in our daily lives, whether it’s lifting up a child, working at a computer, or training for the marathon. It helps us move more freely and easily, carry less stress in our bodies, and stop doing the things that cause us pain.

Everyone can learn: This is because humans are naturally adaptable. Utilizing this inherent skill, Dr. Feldenkrais's ingenious learning strategies guide you to sense how your whole self functions in every movement.
You will gain concrete techniques for improving fundamental skills that are important in every human activity. The method is especially useful for people who want to learn to overcome limitations brought on by stress, misuse, accident, or illness. It is equally beneficial for people who want to perform and feel better physically and mentally.

In private lessons, movements are communicated through precise, gentle touch custom-tailored to your unique configuration at that particular moment. You will be guided through slow, safe movements that provide new learning directly to the neuromuscular system.
