    Teacher: Elizabeth Beringer

    imageElizabeth Beringer has been involved with the practice and development of the Feldenkrais Method for over two decades and integrates current advances in the cognitive sciences into the Feldenkrais perspective.  Elizabeth studied directly with Dr. Feldenkrais, in the U.S. and Israel, from 1976 to 1983. She has been the editor of the Feldenkrais Journal for over 10 years and has served the Feldenkrais Guild in numerous capacities.  She is the co-founder of Feldenkrais Resources with David Zemach-Bersin and they have worked together for over 20 years. Elizabeth is the Educational Director of Feldenkrais Method Training Programs in Italy and Switzerland, and teaches courses for physical and occupational therapists. Elizabeth has maintained a private practice since 1981, working with a varied population including those with severe limitations, infants, seniors, musicians, those in chronic pain and has worked extensively with athletes, martial artists and dancers.  She currently holds the rank of 5th degree black belt in the martial art of Aikido and lives with her husband, cognitive scientist, Rafael Nunez, and their daughter, in San Diego, California.

    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.

    I have long been intrigued by this subtle form of retraining the nervous system, which I currently recommend to patients whose movement has been restricted by injury, cerebral palsy, stroke, fibromyalgia, or chronic pain. I find it to be much more useful than standard physical therapy. I also believe that the Feldenkrais Method can help older people achieve greater range of motion, flexibility, and help us all feel more comfortable in our bodies.
