The Feldenkrais Institute embraces the movement-based teachings of Moshe Feldenkrais, hosting a schedule of classes that combine controlled physical activity and keen mental focus to boost flexibility, posture, and overall well-being. With an emphasis on organically learning to efficiently coordinate muscle groups, Awareness Through Movement classes aim to reduce tension by training students to avoid unnecessary movements, reducing overexertion or sleep jogging. The instructors verbally guide students through a 60-minute sequence of standing, sitting, and reclining positions while encouraging them to mindfully monitor each movement. Over time, the regimen can help attendees to relieve chronic pain and develop the ability to best mannequins in posture competitions. Although the studio provides pads and cotton mats for each class, teachers advise students to wear comfortable clothing that is relatively loose.

The institute stages classes in either its 700-square-foot classroom or its 2,700-square-foot training room, each of which boasts a gleaming expanse of wood flooring that can accommodate reclining students or off-the-cuff tap-dance battles.

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.
