Our most comprehensive package of services:
A Feldenkrais® Institute Reading and Discussion Event
You are invited to attend an evening free talk and discussion with Joshua Wolk, exploring Moshe Feldenkrais’ life story and the genesis of the Feldenkrais Method®. Joshua will discuss some of the highlights of A Life in Movement, volume one of the biography of Moshe Feldenkrais written by Mark Reese, which chronicles the larger-than-life tale of both man and method.
Learn about the ways in which Feldenkrais was influenced by physics, judo, and his own dramatic life experience. Join us for a relaxed and interesting evening. Together, we will develop a deeper understanding of the revolutionary approach to human functioning called the Feldenkrais Method.
Copies of A Life in Movement are available at our front desk.

Joshua Wolk began to study the Feldenkrais Method in 1991 and graduated in 1994 from the Los Angeles Feldenkrais Professional Training Program, directed by Mark Reese. Joshua began his private practice at the Reese Movement Institute in Cardiff, California, where he remained until 1998. He spent eight years studying directly under Mark Reese, Donna Ray and David Zemach-Bersin, while at the same time gaining exposure to first generation Feldenkrais Trainers such as Dennis Leri, Elizabeth Beringer, Frank Wildman, and Russell Delman. Joshua is a life-long martial arts practitioner and holds the rank of fifth degree black belt in Aikido. He served as a traditional live-in apprentice to Aikido Master and Zen Priest, T.K. Chiba, 8th Dan, with whom he trained for five years. In 2007 Joshua was ordained as a teacher of an ancient Japanese meditation form. He completed undergraduate work at Amherst College and holds a J.D. from Boston University School of Law. Joshua teaches the Feldenkrais Method, Aikido, and Meditation in Brattleboro, Vermont, occasionally works in civil liberties law, is married and the father to a son and daughter.Cancellation Policy: For 3-hr evenings—credit toward a future event.
