The Feldenkrais Method® is a body-centered learning process that employs
gentle touch, guided movement and tools for enhancing awareness that reconnect you with your natural ability
to move freely and comfortably. Feldenkrais can benefit anyone, from the physically challenged to the physically
fit, whether young or old. Through exploratory movement and enhanced awareness, Feldenkrais focuses on the neuromuscular
system to help you move through your life with minimal effort and maximal efficiency. By becoming aware of how
your body moves, works and plays with greatest ease, you can reduce muscular effort and strain while releasing
pain and stiffness. This learning becomes generalized to enhance all areas of your life. You will find that
you can engage in all your activities with less effort and more comfort.
Awareness Through Movement® is a group session in which the Feldenkrais
practitioner verbally guides the class through gentle, fluid movements to re-educate the neuromuscular system.
These lessons encourage self-exploration of movement, and affect posture, balance and ease of movement in everyday
activities. Classes increase flexibility, relaxation, awareness and coordination. Movement becomes more youthful,
supple and comfortable. Classes are about 50 minutes long and are usually held in a workshop format or in a
six to ten-week class series.
Other classes that incorporate movement are yoga and Pilates.
