The Feldenkrais Method



The Feldenkrais Method is a somatic practice (or guided exercise therapy) created by Israeli Moshé Feldenkrais (1904–1984). This method works with the brain-body connection to improve an individual’s psychological state and body movement. The goal of the Feldenkrais Method is to repair connections between the body and the brain's motor-cortex, which in turn may help heal psychological or emotional issues.
