What is Feldenkrais?
By heightening our awareness of our movement, breathing and posture, the Feldenkrais Method brings us closer to realising our full human potential. Bringing this into our lives, we learn to move more freely, with greater ease, flexibility and grace. The method can permanently improve our posture, balance and coordination, awakening our innate capacity for life-long vitality and continuing self-development.
