THE FELDENKRAIS METHOD

"We make the impossible possible, the possible easy, and the easy elegant." Moshé Feldenkrais

The Feldenkrais Method was developed by Dr. Moshé Feldenkrais (1904 -1984), physicist, engineer, martial artist, educator and researcher.

The method is a unique and revolutionary approach to the understanding of human learning, movement and function.

Its focus is on the practical development of one’s own individual potential and ability.

The Feldenkrais Method is practiced by using two techniques: Awareness through Movement and Functional Integration.

Awareness through Movement (ATM)

The teacher leads a group through verbally guided movement lessons. You’ll be carrying out the movements at your own pace, with enough time to explore them on your own, to ensure that the learning process is never uncomfortable.

The effects of the lessons are profound and give an increased sense of well-being while creating more scope for spontaneity. People learn to improve the way they organize their actions. These lessons cover a wide range of human movement, from infant development to high-level performance abilities.

Functional Integration (FI)

FI is an individualized, hands-on, mostly non-verbal, one-to-one learning process. The student is guided through sequences of movements by the practitioner, providing the students with the ability to effectively put their new skills into everyday practice. The handling is non-invasive, sensitive, and precise.
