The Feldenkrais Method was named after its originator Moshe Feldenkrais, a mechanical engineer and Judo master with a PhD in Physics. Feldenkrais applied his extensive knowledge of these areas to the human body, teaching people how to move and function optimally.
The Method utilizes movement and attention to bring about changes in how our brain organizes how we move; this affects how we think, feel and act in the world.
The Feldenkrais Method is taught in a group class setting or individually.
“Feldenkrais work…retrains the central nervous system…to help to find new pathways around any areas of blockage or damage. Feldenkrais work is innovative, gentle and, often, strikingly effective at rehabilitating victims of trauma, cerebral palsy, strokes and other serious disabilities.”
