Based on improved awareness and reorganization of movement that combines stretching, exercise and yoga to encourage proper body movement. Based on 40 years of studies by Dr. Mosh Feldenkrais
The Feldenkrais method is named for its Russian-born originator, Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais. An education-based system for restoring physical function to a burdened or impaired body, the method consists of intensive verbal and touch-therapy workshops designed to reorganize the body's fundamental movements and relationship with the central nervous system. Certified practitioners must complete 800-1,000 hours of training in a three- or four-year period.
In the belief that humans use their bodies in a limited way only, the Feldenkrais Method uses movement to improve one's capability to function. It focuses on flexibility, posture, and breathing and is said to help reduce pain, stiffness, and stress.
This is often described as a system of "physical reeducation." Practitioners believe that over time the body learns bad habits of posture and movement. Feldenkrais breaks bad patterns of sitting or standing and helps patients find a personally comfortable style of posture and movement. Using touch, practitioners direct a client's body through movements specifically designed for his or her needs. This practice can ease muscle pain, neuromuscular disorders and the side effects of stroke.
System of bodywork developed by physicist Moshe Feldenkrais, to improve posture, movement, breathing. Method teaches recognizing and breaking improper habits of movement.
This therapy combines movement training, gentle touch, and verbal dialogue to help create more efficient movement. In individual hands-on sessions, the practitioner's touch is used to address the student's breathing and body alignment along with a series of slow, nonaerobic motions.
Feldenkrais/Awareness Through Movement Method of bodywork helps to re-connect with our natural ability to move by using an exploratory process of learning where a practitioner guides one through sequential movements. Habitual patterns are reduced and new alternative ways of movement are learned thus reducing stiffness and pain.
a form of movement therapy designed to isolate separate muscles and muscle groups to promote flexibility, release tension, and enhance balance.
Teaches, through movement, how to use our bodies in a way that improves the capabilities to function with a greater range of ease and skill, thus improving well-being.
Working with the human being in motion rather than in stasis, known for implementing change at the junction of thought and action, allowing the participant to kinesthetically "Learn How to Learn".
System developed by Moshe Feldenkrais that attempts to reprogram the nervous system through movement instrumented by physical pressure and manipulation to the body.
A method to reprogram the nervous system through movement augmented by physical pressure and manipulation.
