What happens in a Feldenkrais session

The session is either in class or one to one

  • is suitable for all

  • is adaptable for everyone’s needs.

  • enables you to change habitual movement patterns that may be hindering you and even causing pain

  • empowers you to learn how to learn and to do what you want to do

For the class you will...

  • develop deeper awareness through gentle movement

  • explore in a mindful way how to make changes in your habitual movement

  • learn to use your sensation of movement to release patterns of tension

  • need a mat or a blanket as the class is often done lying down.

For the one to one session you will...

  • remove your shoes

  • lie or sit on a treatment table

  • release patterns of tension through being gently moved

About Feldenkrais

The Feldenkrais Method is named after Moshe Feldenkrais who developed the method to help him overcome a severe and lifechanging knee injury. He was a physicist/engineer at the Sorbonne, Paris and applied physics to his understanding of the structure of the body. He also trained with the founder of Judo, Jigoro Kano, and was instrumental in bringing Judo to France. In developing his Method, he realised that by making changes he was altering not just his physical self but also how his brain perceived himself.
