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!
Ann Barlaz, M.Ed.


All are welcome to attend!

The Feldenkrais Institute of New York is delighted to welcome the internationally recognized Senior Feldenkrais Trainer, Ruthy Alon, with her newest workshop in the Solutions for Optimal Mobility program.  Exploring new themes, this workshop offers easily applicable self-care strategies for an array of individual functional problems, and is open to everyone. Ruthy Alon is an extraordinary teacher and one of Dr. Moshe Feldenrkais’ original students. Because she is reducing her travel schedule, this is a rare opportunity to work with Ruthy Alon in person.

Solutions for Optimal Mobility explores several new themes and a variety of important functional problems. Participants will explore a range of innovative neuro-motor processes and learn easily applicable self-care strategies to address common movement related issues including facial tension, balance and posture, sitting and squatting, pelvic floor health, and new processes for the lower back

Ruthy Alon believes that learning awakens the biological intelligence of the organism. Her approach is designed to help us to free ourselves from the limitations of our automatic habits, and restore our ability to make healthy sensory-kinesthetic differentiations. It supports us in developing trust in our own individual sensory integrity.

“Ruthy Alon is a wellspring of wisdom, a true teacher an an inspiration to all who have an opportunity to learn from her…”
– David Zemach-Bersin

“Guiding people to master the solutions independently is like teaching people how to fish, rather than giving them a fish.”
– Ruthy Alon

Requirements for Movement Solutions Teacher Certification

This workshop is open to everyone. However, Ruthy will begin the certification process for those interested in becoming a Movement Intelligence Solutions Teacher during this 6-day workshop. She will introduce an aspect of the teacher training program called the ‘Didactic,’ which requires participants to analyze Solutions Processes according to a set of 10 questions designed to guide your inquiry into the organic logic of each lesson. Participants will receive a ‘provisional certification’ to begin teaching. Completion and full Teacher Certification requires further study with one of Ruthy’s Senior Movement Intelligence Trainers, either live or virtually, over a period of time.

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.

As a career dancer and teacher, I am no longer feeling daily discomfort from the over-use of muscle groups, and I am more efficient with teaching movement. I truly believe that whatever you are pursuing in life, Feldenkrais can help you achieve your goal in a clear and gentle way.
- Lise Weber-Frutchey, Dancer and Choreographer
