The Feldenkrais Method is a holistic approach to human functioning and action, based on the understanding that movement is the language of the brain. Rather than ‘fixing’ the body, Moshe Feldenkrais taught us how to expand its capabilities and range of choice. Movement provides information the brain needs to grow and organise itself. This kind of information leads to improved connections.
As a Feldenkrais practitioner, my work with children and adults is founded on principles of neuroplasticity. The work of the Feldenkrais Method involves creating new movement and perceptual possibilities, and therefore new neural pathways, no matter what a child’s current abilities are. These can form the basis from which new behaviours can develop.
