What is Feldenkrais?

Feldenkrais is easy to do, and hard to explain. Everyone has a different response to it. You might get up of the floor amazed at how much more "grounded" you feel. Or you may feel taller. The point isn't to change you, it's to let you learn new ways of doing so you have a choice of how you do things.

Who should do Feldenkrais?

The people who want to try something new. The people who love learning. Most lessons are done on the floor, so getting down and up can help. But most lessons can also adapt for sitting, or standing.

How does Feldenkrais help me?

No-one will know the answer to this until you try.

Some people have used the knowledge they get in a Feldenkrais lesson to reduce pain in a joint.

Others just love the relaxed feeling they have after a lesson.

Some people change their gait, or the way they sit.

Can I see someone doing this?

Sure take a look at this site and you can do a short lesson.

If I come what should I bring?

Come in comfortable clothes, ad if you wish, your mat or a blanket, although some will be available.

Where do I call to learn more?
