This video by Micheal Cann does a great job explaining Feldenkrais
Feldenkrais lessons can help with a variety of goals, including:
relief from chronic pain
full recovery from injuries
regaining function after a stroke
breaking out of a creative or emotional rut
reaching top performance.
I have long been intrigued by this subtle form of retraining the nervous system, which I currently recommend to patients whose movement has been restricted by injury, cerebral palsy, stroke, fibromyalgia, or chronic pain. ... I also believe that the Feldenkrais Method can help older people achieve greater range of motion, flexibility, and help us all feel more comfortable in our bodies.

What is Feldenkrais?
Have you ever thought about how the muscles of your back are involved when you walk? Or realized that the way you use your eyes might be related to how easy it is to turn your head?
The Feldenkrais Method creates a space for you to slow down, feel, and understand the interconnected ways in which your whole body is involved in the movements of your daily life. The slow, guided movements in a Feldenkrais lesson are organized so that more ergonomic, and more natural feeling ways of moving will emerge.
Personalized, individual Feldenkrais sessions are called Functional Integration lessons. This gentle, comfortable touch based work is tailored to the needs of the student and is appropriate for persons at any age or level of mobility who wants to feel better and move better.
Group Feldenkrais Lessons are called Awareness Through Movement Lessons. Participants are verbally guided through specific movement sequences while being asked to feel and observe how they perform each motion. You'll be suprised at how quickly your flexibility, coordination, and ballance improves!
With the Feldenkrais method, you can discover comfortable, coordinated movement patterns that support recovering full mobility after injury. You can also expand your comfort, flexibility, and coordination, and develop new abilities at any age.
“ I have chronic neck and shoulder issues. Each time I visit with Tara I feel more grounded, flexible, stronger and at ease. The table work she does is relaxing yet it is so informative. I have changed my habits that cause the symptoms I experience due to her knowledge and care.“ -V.C., Graphic designer
