The Feldenkrais® Method is based on principles of neuroplasticity, physics, biomechanics and an empirical understanding of learning and human development. By expanding the self-image through movement sequences, guided attention, and the gentle guided touch of an individual session, it brings attention to the parts of the self that are out of awareness, helping you create new neuropathways, and thus enabling you to include more of yourself in your functioning movements. Through Feldenkrais you become more aware of your habitual neuromuscular patterns and expand options for new ways of moving. By increasing sensitivity, the Feldenkrais® Method assists you to live your life more fully, efficiently and comfortably.
Feldenkrais®... is it for me?
Would you like to have more ease and comfort? Would you like to enhance recovery from an injury even though it seems you’ve reached your limit of improvement? Are you an athlete or dancer who would like to expand your potential? Would you like to age more gracefully, improve balance, getting up from a chair, or walking? Or would you just like to have better posture, be more comfortable, and breathe and move more easily, feeling embodied, calm, and more focused? Then give this method a try, you may be surprised by the results! We all know that habits can sometimes get in the way of us changing and improving. But how do we change habits without being very hard on ourselves? This is where the Feldenkrais Method comes in as it is based on the premise of neuroplasticity, the potential for the brain to change and heal at any age. The implications this has on learning, especially after injury and illness, are potentially without limit. Imagine standing more upright, being more comfortable in your body, moving more easily… but all without forcing something on yourself! The learning comes from tending to yourself while your nervous system is free to explore new possibilities!

The method is taught in two forms, in group classes known as Awareness Through Movement® and in individual hands-on sessions known as Functional Integration® sessions.
