Feldenkrais

The Feldenkrais Method® is a unique system of somatic education, using gentle sequences of movement to learn how to reorganise patterns of each action. Much of the work includes letting go of ways of moving and holding the body which are habitual and restrictive. The process of re-learning free movement is facilitated by slow lessons which should involve no strain or pain at all. By becoming more relaxed and aware of how the individual body moves, the pupil has more freedom to choose a range of movements. The benefits of the method are not confined to the body, as physical movement and posture can have a profound effect on the mind and emotions. Feldenkrais helps you to gain access to more of your underlying potential - to enhance well-being and prove flexibility in all aspects of life. This can be either in individual hands-on sessions, Functional Integration® or in group classes (Awareness Through Movement® ATM).
