Feldenkrais Method

Feldenkrais Method

Developed by Russian-born Israeli educator Moshe Feldenkrais, this method establishes new connections between the brain and body through movement reeducation. One of two formats of instruction is used: awareness through movement, and functional integration.

Awareness through movement classes are group sessions in which the teacher verbally guides students through repatterning.

In the one-on-one functional integration session, a teacher uses hands-on manipulation to guide the student toward new movement patterns.

Teach Your Body Some New Moves

Humans are creatures of habit, and one of our most enduring habits is the way in which we move our bodies throughout the day. Generally, we move without even thinking about it. This can be a good thing, in that we don’t have to concentrate on putting one foot in front of the other. But moving mindlessly, without conscious body awareness, also allows us to perpetuate dysfunctional movement patterns that can negatively influence our health and well-being.
