Feldenkrais Method of Somatic Education

The Feldenkrais Method is a postural approach that, by employing exercises in movement and encouraging the mind to reconnect with the body, helps individuals restore better physical function. Through the website you can search for practitioners and classes across the United States. Courses offered are either part of their “Awareness Through Movement” therapy, in which patients are guided verbally through sequences of motion and exercise, or part of the “Functional Integration” program, in which practitioners guide participants through movements with gentle, non-invasive touching.

You can also find information and excellent course selections at the New York Feldenkrais Institute, which has Feldenkrais superstar Marek Wyszynski on staff – and Wyszynski is also president of another NY-based Feldenkrais institution, Physical Therapy & Feldenkrais NYC.
