Feldenkrais starts your whole life moving in new directions, with new choices on every level of your life. You must experience it. Feldenkrais has had a tremendous impact on my life. It has taught me to really listen to myself. I now know I need not stay stuck in pain. It has helped me see that I have choices, that my patterns of movement, my patterns of emotional "sludge" can change.

The Institute offers the following programs and services for the public.

As a neuroscientist interested in the development and plasticity of the nervous system, it is gratifying to see how the Feldenkrais Method demonstrates these principles. The Feldenkrais Method has also greatly improved my personal quality of life — physically and emotionally — by reducing the restrictions and limitations I thought were permanent due to multiple sclerosis.

The Feldenkrais Method has given me the ability to do things in tennis I never could do before and has relieved my body of the pain accumulated from over twenty years of competitive playing.
