In his exciting new book, The Brain’s Way of Healing, Norman Doidge, M.D. introduces Dr. Feldenkrais as an early “neuroplastician” who had a sophisticated understanding of the human brain that was decades ahead of his time.

Today, as people become interested in accessing their own brain’s “neuroplastic” abilities, the Feldenkrais Method® is ready to help with hundreds of effective user-friendly Awareness Through Movement® exercises and a gentle hands-on approach that can be used to engage the brain’s plasticity to bring about improvements in the body’s comfort and function.

Living the Embodied Life™: Feldenkrais, Meditation and Guided Inquiry
– September 14-16, 2018


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.
- Janie Cutliff, client



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.
