Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais’ method will be of great benefit to all of humanity. From my own experience I know the remarkable results achieved.

FAQs

  1. What’s the main difference between the group classes and the individual sessions? In the Awareness Through Movement classes you follow the teacher’s verbal instructions while moving yourself. In Functional Integration sessions, the work is more hands on with the practitioner guiding your movements with skilled manipulation and touch.
  2. Should I begin with a group class (ATM) or an individual session (FI)? If you have a specific issue, condition or injury we recommend you begin you with FI sessions.  Here the practitioner’s attention is entirely on you, and the lesson is tailored for your particular needs.  Some people start with ATM classes and later begin private sessions.  The best thing is to call us and tell us your situation and we’ll be glad to advise you on the best course for you. 
  3. Do I need any special equipment? There are no special machines or expensive equipment you need to benefit from The Feldenkrais Method. The Institute provides the mats, pads and rollers used in our classes and sesssions.  Doing Feldenkrais on your own at home requires nothing more than a floor with a carpet, pad or mat, with perhaps some pads or cushions for your comfort in the various positions used in the lessons. The Institute offers many lessons on audio CD for you to continue your improvement at home.

If you have a question you’d like to see answered, please send it to us, and we’ll be happy to send our reply and perhaps add it to our FAQs.

I have long been intrigued by this subtle form of retraining the nervous system, which I currently recommend to patients whose movement has been restricted by injury, cerebral palsy, stroke, fibromyalgia, or chronic pain. I find it to be much more useful than standard physical therapy. I also believe that the Feldenkrais Method can help older people achieve greater range of motion, flexibility, and help us all feel more comfortable in our bodies.

Individual Sessions

The most direct way to benefit from Feldenkrais is to work privately with one of our highly skilled practitioners. In Functional Integration lessons, the work is tailored specifically to your needs, the touch is gentle and communicative, and your comfort is respected.  Call 212-727-1014 for an appointment.

Just to let you know how much Feldenkrais has been helping me, it's been incredible. Aside from the physical benefits (and there has been significant improvement), it serves as a complete release of physical, mental and emotional tension. It helps me deal with the stress going on in my life; gives me the energy to persevere. Thanks!
