The Feldenkrais Method is a somatic educational system, developed by Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais (1904-1984).

The physicist Moshé Feldenkrais studied the connections of movement, awareness, thinking and feeling. As a result he developed the Feldenkrais Method, a powerful tool not only to improve human movement but also to improve the skills of the human brain.

A Feldenkrais lesson guides you through a series of movement variations. It creates a space of learning and re-learning to move without stress or anxiety, to let go tensed up muscles, to improve the flexibility and availability of the body.

The method is commonly used to regain full mobility after injuries and to reduce pain. It is also quite popular amongst musicians, dancers, sportsmen and other movement-related groups who need to rely on a highly differentiatet quality of movement. Basically it can be said that anyone can profit from the method since it helps to regain and keep physical and mental mobility up until old age.
