What is Feldenkrais?
The Feldenkrais Method® is an holistic approach to learning named after its originator, Moshe Feldenkrais (1904-1984), an engineer and physicist as well as a Judo teacher.
By moving slowly, in gentle repetitive sequences, neuromuscular pathways are re-educated, strengthened or recovered.
Anyone interested in moving with greater efficiency, ease and comfort can benefit from lessons. They help with every day, athletic and artistic movements. The benefits can include pain reduction, a more extensive self-awareness and greater precision in performance (sport, music, dance, yoga, meditation).
This lasting change in your ability develops through improved awareness of what you are doing and the quality with which you do what you do.
Feldenkrais initially developed Functional Integration® as a way of overcoming his own knee problems and re-learning how to walk without pain. In order to teach the method effectively to his own students and to the general public, his second application of the method evolved called Awareness through Movement®.
