Functional Integration® (FI) lessons happen in a private space (usually the practitioner’s studio) and are designed to address the specific needs of the individual student. This is one-on-one tactile work where the Feldenkrais® teacher listens, guides and initiates movements with the student in standing, sitting and lying. There is no manipulation, fixing or mending, rather a process of learning unfolds between the student with the practitioner. Comfort is of primary importance in an FI lesson and often this can be a new area of discovery for the student. To aid in this process, a low, comfortable table stands in the studio with many additional rollers and pads used in many different configurations during lessons.
