"Movement is life. Life is a process. Improve the quality of the process and you improve the quality of life itself." Moshe Feldenkrais
The Feldenkrais Method is a unique approach to human learning and change, acclaimed for its ability to access the power of the brain to improve many areas of human functioning, including; flexibility, movement, posture and self_image. An integration of biology, neuroscience and psychology the Method explores the biological and cultural aspects of movement and posture, and how habitual ways of moving, feeling, and acting can constrain us to a small portion of our potential.
The Feldenkrais Method uses organic learning, movement, and sensing to free us from habitual patterns and allow for new patterns of thinking, moving and feeling to emerge. The Feldenkrais Method is practiced in two versatile applications:

The Feldenkrais Method was developed by Moshe Feldenkrais, D.Sc., (1904-1984), who synthesized insights from physics, motor development, bio-mechanics, psychology, and martial arts to develop a powerful, effective, and practical application, demonstrating the inseparableness of thought, feeling, perception and action.
Dr. Feldenkrais was a distinguished scientist, physicist and engineer. He earned his D.Sc. in Physics from the Sorbonne and was a close associate of Nobel Prize Laureate Frederic Joliot-Curie at the Curie Institute in Paris, where they conducted research together. He was also a respected Judo instructor and author of several important books on the subject.
Living in England in the 1940's, Feldenkrais found himself unable to walk after suflering a serious injury. He began an intense exploration into the relationship between bodily movement, and healing, feeling, thinking, and learning. As a result, he restored his ability to walk and made revolutionary discoveries, culminating in the development of the method that now bears his name.
Before he passed away in 1984, in Tel-Aviv, Israel, Feldenkrais personally trained a small group of practitioners to continue his work. Today there are over 6,000 Feldenkrais Practitioners around the globe. His insights contributed to the development of the new field of somatic education and continue to influence disciplines such as the music, dance, education, psychology, child development, physical and occupational therapy, sports and gerontology.
