The Feldenkrais Method is an innovative approach for improving both physical and mental functioning through the exploration of body movement patterns and the use of attention. Its effectiveness lies in its ability to access the nervous system's innate processes of learning. Recognized for its remarkable ability to improve posture, flexibility, and coordination, the Feldenkrais Method can help those with restricted movement, chronic tension and pain, developmental, psychological and neurological problems, performing artists, athletes, and anyone wishing to live and move more comfortably.

It is taught by Guild Certified Feldenkrais Practitioners who have completed 800-1000 hours of training over a 3 1/2 - 4 year period in a program approved and regulated by the Feldenkrais Guild®.

more about the Feldenkrais Method

Robert Cowie is a Guild Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner. He was first introduced to the Feldenkrais Method by a piano student who is a practitioner. Although initially attracted to how the Method might help him improve as a performer, Robert has since realized, through his participation in the 4 year training program required of practitioners, the vast array of insight and wisdom that the Method has to offer in the personal, professional, and artistic aspects of his life. His primary teacher and mentor is David Bersin, one of the world's foremost Feldenkrais practitioners and trainers and one of the first Americans to be trained by Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais.
