Feldenkrais is not just pushing muscles around, but changing things in the brain itself.

Our Story

The Feldenkrais Institute of NY was founded in 2005.  The partners of the Institute — Sheryl Field, Maria Lanaras, Marek Wyszynski and David Zemach-Bersin — pooled their experience, resources and a shared vision to open the nation’s largest Feldenkrais center devoted to the work of Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais.  The Institute offers the following programs and services for the public.

  • Weekly public classes using Awareness Through Movement
  • Evening and weekend workshops for the public
  • Individual sessions using Functional Integration for adults and children
  • Feldenkrais Professional Training Programs
  • Graduate programs for Feldenkrais Practitioners
  • Audio, video and print resources on The Feldenkrais Method
  • In addition, the Institute’s Feldenkrais center shares space with The Feldenkrais Research Foundation, a 501(c)3 Charitable organization that funds research using The Feldenkrais Method
