Students divide their time between lying on cotton mats, sitting in chairs, and standing during classes designed to reintroduce the nervous system to the movement-related learning humans do as infants. The sessions can minimize unneeded muscle strain, improve posture, and aid in injury recovery. New students are strongly encouraged to attend three to six beginner classes before attending open classes. For more information, see the class description and schedule and FAQs.

The Feldenkrais Institute

Moshe Feldenkrais learned how to walk twice—once as a baby and once as an adult, after a severe injury. While mastering the process for the second time, he began to develop his own exercise method. By returning the body to an infant-like state of motion learning, The Feldenkrais Method breaks the nervous system’s ingrained movement habits, formed through culture and personal upbringing, and reshapes them into healthier, more efficient ones.

The Feldenkrais Method's first component is one-on-one treatments, dubbed Functional Integration sessions. Through manipulation and passive movements, a practitioner can assuage the client’s aches and pains or address larger-scale neuroskeletal concerns. The second component is group classes, which teach new movement habits through an eclectic array of exercises, rather than by just proclaiming walking on your feet illegal.

Reviews

I love Feldenkrais and this is like the epicenter of talent. I really suggest everyone try it at least once!
