About the Feldenkrais Method®
The Feldenkrais Method® is a revolutionary system of learning based on principles of neuro-plasticity, body mechanics, physics and martial arts. Scientist Dr Moshe Feldenkrais discovered that by play and awareness we can make dramatic improvements in our habitual patterns of movement and change our brain.
“Mind and body are not just parts somehow related to each other, but an inseparable whole while functioning.” Dr Moshe Feldenkrais
By exploring the variations and novelty embedded in Feldenkrais lessons, your brain learns to release its dependence on habit and make choices that best support your intentions at any given moment.
"Through awareness we can learn to move with astonishing lightness and freedom at any age and thereby improve our living circumstances, not only physically but emotionally, intellectually and spiritually." Dr Moshe Feldenkrais
Anyone at any age can improve their co-ordination, posture, flexibility, breathing, and athletic and creative performance. Management of chronic pain and rehabilitation from muscular-skeletal injury is faster and more complete. Experience profound relaxation in your nervous system which is an antidote to our modern stressful lives.
In other words, by improving awareness of our body through movement and by utilising the brain’s natural capacity for learning, the Feldenkrais Method® brings us closer to realising our full human potential. We learn to move and live more freely, with greater ease, flexibility and grace.
