The Feldenkrais Method is an educational system centered on movement and the body, aiming to expand and refine the use of the self through awareness. It attracts those who wish to improve their movement repertoire (dancers, musicians, artists), as well as those wishing to reduce pain or limitations in movement, and many who want to improve their general well-being and personal development.
Because it uses movement as the primary vehicle for gaining awareness, it is directly applicable to disorders that arise from restricted or habitually poor movement. But as a process for gaining awareness, it can expand a person’s choices and responses to many aspects of life: emotions, relationships, and intellectual tasks; and it applies at any level, from severe disorder to highly professional performance.
The Feldenkrais Method holds that there is no separation between mind and body, and thus learning to move better can improve one’s overall well-being on many levels.
