THE FELDENKRAIS METHOD

We all possess a strong inner voice and power, but life can disconnect us from these things and then we become limited in our  potential. The Feldenkrais Method helps to reconnect you to the original full power of yourself so that you can experience enhanced functioning all aspects of your life.Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais (1904-1984) began developing his method in the 1940s — initially to heal his own sports injury — and it is now practiced worldwide. A physicist, mechanical engineer, martial artist and educator, Dr. Feldenkrais based his studies of movement and consciousness on principles of physics, biomechanics and an empirical understand- ing of learning.

What Feldenkrais created is a form of somatic education that uses gentle movement and awareness to improve the organization of your skeleton, muscles and nervous system. In this way, you learn to increase your ease and range of motion, and improve your flexibility, balance, and coordination.
