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.
An inspirational story about the body's ability to teach the brain. A baby born 20 years ago without a third of her cerebellum was given a grim prognosis by medical doctors: she could never walk or talk. Now the young woman enjoys a nearly normal life and is a college student.
International Feldenkrais Trainer, Russell Delman, offers an overview of The Feldenkrais Method and a tribute to Moshe Feldenkrais. Mr. Delman explains why The Feldenkrais Method is the most effective way to break up compulsive patterns and promote the evolution of human functioning.
The South Bend Workshop with Moshe Feldenkrais is as close to a live experience of Feldenkrais's teaching as you can get today. It is currently the only workshop Feldenkrais taught for the public where you have the video image to go with the audio.
