HOW YOU MOVE MATTERS

Moving well benefits all parts of your body, including your brain.

 

The Feldenkrais Method ® (pronounced Fell-den-krice - rhymes with “nice”)  taps into your brain and body’s capacity to learn and change. It helps you develop new movement and lifestyle habits to create life-changing results. 

 

Named after its founder, Dr Moshe Feldenkrais (1904–1984), the Feldenkrais Method ® is a science-backed combination of movement, physics, psychology and human development.

 

Dr Feldenkrais developed Method in response to his own knee injuries, drawing on his extensive experience in engineering, physics and martial arts.

 

Now Feldenkrais ® practitioners from all over the world are trained to help you improve your movement, balance, breathing and more.

The Feldenkrais Method ® is not just pushing muscles around,

but changing things in the brain itself.

Karl Pribram, MD, Neuropsychologist
