The Feldenkrais Method is an approach to movement and learning that helps you live in your body with greater ease. On its basic level, the Feldenkrais Method improves posture, coordination, flexibility and suppleness. Beyond this, Feldenkrais alleviates pain by minimizing physiological and psychological stress associated with restricted functions and compromised self-expression. We learn about ourselves at a deeper level.

MosheThe Feldenkrais Method was developed by the eminent, Russian-born scientist Dr Moshe Feldenkrais (1904- 1984). Feldenkrais believed our physical limitations and discomfort often stem from unconscious habits of muscular holding developed through our lifetime, perhaps in times of injury or trauma. This becomes held as a pattern in our brains, which over time creates more stress and strain. Feldenkrais sessions break this cycle, helping you recognise your individual habits of tension and discover ways to eliminate limitations and restrictions.

The positive integration of the mind and body through the Feldenkrais Method enables people to live more comfortable and rewarding lives.

There is now a huge amount of scientific research in the field of neuro-plasticity – the human brain’s remarkable capacity to rewire itself, adapt and repair damaged areas. We can learn and re-learn, not just in childhood as was previously thought, but throughout life and even after injury, stroke, etc. This has revolutionised our understanding of how we can recover and rehabilitate. Moshe Feldenkrais was far ahead of his time in the development of this method which applies these principles of the brains ability to rewire itself, grow and improve.

The Feldenkrais Method is highly respected worldwide and rapidly growing in the UK. It is based on sound biomechanical and neurological principles yet easily accessible through simple, practical lessons.

Through awareness we can learn how to move with astonishing lightness and freedom”- Moshe Feldenkrais
