Feldenkrais Method®


Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais


Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais (1904-1984, Doctor of Science, Sorbonne), the originator of the Feldenkrais Method, was a Ukraine-born Israeli Physicist, Mechanical Engineer, Judo expert, student of human development, and educator. 

After suffering from a serious knee injury, for which the medical system could not provide satisfying help, he developed a program of therapeutic movements, based on the principles of physics and biomechanics, physiology as well as the understanding of human psychology. His approach helped him bring his knee back to normal functioning.

In developing his work, Moshe Feldenkrais studied anatomy, child development, movement science, evolution, psychology, a number of Eastern awareness practices and other somatic approaches. He firmly believed in the interconnectedness of mind and body and the ability of the brain to learn and adapt at any stage in life (brain plasticity).

Dr. Feldenkrais authored a number of seminal books on movement, learning, human consciousness and somatic experience. He taught in Israel and many countries in Europe through the 1960s and 1970s and in North America through the 1960s and 1980s.

The Feldenkrais Method® is now being taught worldwide by thousands of practitioners.

Life is not a stable process. Our ability to recover is our greatest quality.
