Tutor: Kate Hilder

The Feldenkrais Method encourages ease and freedom in everyday movement, improves posture and co-ordination and can alleviate muscular pain.

Lessons take place lying on the floor, following spoken instructions from the teacher. Through exploring different movement sequences we engage our curiosity and become more aware of our movement habits. Its through this increased awareness that we experience new movement possibilities which can free us from tension and bring about a greater sense of well-being.

Benefits also include improved performance in sports and artistic activities such as running, swimming, dancing, playing an instrument or singing. These classes are accessible to adults of all ages and movement abilities.

Moshe Feldenkrais (1904 - 1984) was a physicist, engineer and a master of Judo who used his knowledge to re-learn how to walk after a knee injury left him with a severe disability in middle age. He was a pioneer of mind-body education, his approach being essentially experiential and grounded in awareness: "What I am after is more flexible minds, not just more flexible bodies".
