    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.

    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.

    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.
