The Feldenkrais Method® - in individual sessions, classes, and workshops. To explore, through conscious touch and attentive movement, precisely how we organize ourselves in body and mind.


The Feldenkrais Method is a very practical thing, a very concrete way of getting better. You could say it is a way to look at ourselves, to learn how we actually work, a way to improve the way we live this life. You could also say it is about coming home to live in oneself, coming back from a fragmented self-image, coming back to one’s nature.


Based on mindful movement - its founder held the first European black belt in Judo - it is a great help for improving ability in sports, music and dance, as well as sitting at the computer, standing at the stove, or kneeling in the garden. It is also a helpful for overcoming acquired or congenital restrictions in movement, for resolving back, neck and shoulder pain, and the many other dysfunctions that are inherent in our education and endemic to our way of life.


Taught in a class format, like a yoga class, or in hands-on private sessions, the Method is radically different from most exercise routines, stretching, training or relaxation programs. The goal is to develop presence in movement, as a foundation for healthier and more graceful action in all domains. To make, as Moshe Feldenkrais said,  “the impossible possible, the possible easy, and the easy elegant.” And this is done - in stark contrast to the “no pain, no gain” philosophy - without strain and stress, and with awareness, gentleness and much laughter. The student is not plugged into a program to be repaired, but welcomed into a relationship that respects and nourishes his/her own autonomy.
