    CLASSES

    Attending a Feldenkrais class is a great way to experience the magic of the Feldenkrais Method®. During the class, you will experience the miracle of sensory-motor learning, and enjoy the benefits of engaging your brain on behalf of your body.

    image Choose from seventeen different classes, six days a week, with ten great teachers. Although no prior experience is required, we especially recommend the Basics Class for newcomers, and the Moving Out of Pain class for or anyone who is in pain.

    Each class features a different Feldenkrais exercise or “lesson,” and involves making gentle movements, slowly with minimal effort, while paying attention to your own sensations and experience. The teacher guides the class verbally, and each person is encouraged to go at their own pace. The movements in a Feldenkrais class are relaxing and non-stressful. Mats are provided for your convenience. NOTE: Late-arrivals are not permitted, so please come a few minutes early.

    WORKSHOPS

    imageMost of our public Feldenkrais workshops are three hours long, and allow you to focus on specific subjects in depth. They can be extremely useful and provide you with a “bigger” Feldenkrais experience. Typically, we designate one workshop each month as an opportunity in which you may “Bring a Friend for Free.”

    It is possible to register for most of our workshops online. Or, by calling the Feldenkrais Institute: (212) 727-1014.

    To register for workshops sponsored by the Feldenkrais Foundation, please call (212) 727-1014.

    In addition to workshops for the public, we also provide Advanced Training events for Feldenkrais Practitioners, and special courses for Physical Therapists, PTAs and other clinicians.

    imageEver wondered how you could improve your vision by working directly with your eye movements and the ways they relate to the rest of your body?

    The Feldenkrais® Institute is proud to welcome back David Webber, creator of the “Seeing Clearly” workshop and a Feldenkrais teacher who not only restored his own vision using Feldenkrais, he specializes in using The Feldenkrais Method® with others to improve eyesight, physical ease, balance and visual acuity.

    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.
    - Maria Luskin, Professor Emory University Medical School



    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.

    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.
