What is the Feldenkrais Method?

feldenkraisThe Feldenkrais Method of Awareness through Movement essentially brings the fun and freedom back into movement. It is known for its capacity to bring about ease and grace in everyday movement activities.

People seek it out for various reasons, often looking for relief from neck, shoulder and back pain, or wanting to become better at some favourite activity such as golf, dancing  walking etc.

When and How Did the Method Originate?

The method originated in the 1940’s when Moshe Feldenkrais, a well respected physicist, mechanical engineer and martial arts master in Europe became immobilised with serious knee injuries (his cruciate ligaments in fact). Feldenkrais then merged  his acquired knowledge with his deep curiosity about biology, about how children develop and learn to move, and the human nervous system to develop the Feldenkrais Method.

Private Sessions or Group Classes

feldenkrais treatmentThis modality is available in two ways:

in private one to one sessions with a certified Feldenkrais practitioner.

and/or in group classes called Awareness through Movement  lessons  again with a certified Feldenkrais practitioner/teacher.

In Awareness Through Movement classes you learn ways of moving and resting which work better for you. Through guided lessons you will sense differences in the ways you move, recognise and let go of habitual patterns and develop new approaches. The  Feldenkrais Method can address specific difficulties or improve the way you do what you do.  It assists you to build an expanded self-image through exploring diverse, and sometimes very unfamiliar movements – all very inherently human movements that are built into our skeleton, that maybe you didn’t know you could do with ease.

Feldenkrais is movement at its most refined…easy, effortless, elegant & pain free.

Enhancing everyday movement, it is a simple system of neuromuscular reeducation, effective in relieving pain, calming, and improving performance. It can teach you how to help yourself, and……make movement a joy!!
