The Feldenkrais Method is changing the image in the motor cortex; and our brain, feeling the freedom of the new learning, rushes to meet it.

Classes & Workshops

Experience the many benefits of Feldenkrais® exercises (also called Awareness Through Movement®) in classes and workshops.

For information about upcoming workshops and other events, please scroll down!

CLASSES

imageEach 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.

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.

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.
