What is Feldenkrais

Intelligent Movement...

Feldenkrais is a practical method for working with the brain and nervous system through movement and awareness. It is more concerned with improving function (what we can do) than with isolating structures of the body (strengthening a bicep or stretching a hamstring.) When we learn to move more efficiently and easily, there is generally also a corresponding increase in strength, change in muscle tone, coordination and balance, and an overall feeling of ease and grace.

We all have patterns of movement and behaviour, many of which are extremely useful but others that may not be or that may have outlived their usefulness. These can result in frustration, pain and loss of function over time. Feldenkrais is a way of exploring these habits gently in a safe and playful way, to give ourselves new options and freedom and to help find function that may have been forgotten.

Feldenkrais Classes with Lessons in Movement

Learning in your own home

We are running online classes via Zoom on Wednesday evenings. They will soon be available through the website but in the meantime please email for the details.

If you are interested in finding out more about Feldenkrais or our online classes, please email info@lessonsinmovement.co.uk for more information.

Currently we don't have classes gathered together in one location -- due to you-know-what! If you would like to know when in-person classes in Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire will be available please contact info@lessonsinmovement.co.uk
