The Feldenkrais Method®
Feldenkrais uses gentle movement to improve the way your body accomplishes the tasks of daily living that we used to be able to do without thinking about it. Feldenkrais helps you move more easily and increase your range of motion. You can also enhance your flexibility and coordination. Imagine how much easier life could be when you enrich all these abilities.
While it’s based on physics and biomechanics a big part of Feldenkrais is a better awareness of how to use more of your body to help you do the things you need to do in your everyday life. You learn how your neuromuscular patterns may have evolved into limiting or even counterproductive habits. Then you expand your options through new ways of moving that help you live your life more comfortably and efficiently – and more fully.

Why Is It Called Feldenkrais?
It’s named after its creator, Moshe Feldenkrais. An engineer and sports enthusiast Feldenkrais was only in his 20s when he injured his knee playing soccer. The injury caused recurring problems throughout his life. Feldenkrais devised his method so he could continue to be active and do the things he wanted to do in life. In fact he published a book on judo in his late 40s. Learn more about this inspiring teacher by following this link.
