Feldenkrais® is a body-focused learning method developed by Israeli Moshé Feldenkrais (1904-1984). He understood that self-awareness training can improve basic human functionality while at the same time reducing pain. The Feldenkrais® method is based on the organic way that infants learn. Feldenkrais’ own observations and studies led him to suggest that this way of learning could continue beyond childhood and he developed two different techniques: Functional Integration® and Awareness Through Movement®. Functional Integration® sessions are one-to-one lessons during which teacher and student interact using non-invasive touch, whereas Awareness Through Movement® is taught in groups, with the teacher verbally guiding students through a sequence of movements.
