Functional Integration®

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 involving the student with the practitioner.  An environment is established in order for learning to take place.  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. Wear comfortable clothes.
