"Feldenkrais represents a revolution in human health. Through this method we can learn to improve our living circumstances not only physically but also emotionally, intellectually and spiritually." -- Smithsonian Magazine

"I recommend The Feldenkrais Method to patients whose movement has been restricted by injury, cerebral palsy, stroke, fibromyalgia, or chronic pain. I find it to be much more useful than standard physical therapy. I also believe that the Feldenkrais Method can help all of us feel more comfortable in our bodies." -- Andrew Weil, M.D., author of 'Spontaneous Healing'

"The exercises are so simple and so ingenious...It is so clever to develop the body by making the mind and senses become aware of each side of the body separately. It increases the subtlety of sensation." -- Yehudi Menuhin, concert violinist

"What I'm after isn't flexible bodies but flexible brains." -- Moshe Feldenkrais
Moshe Feldenkrais, D.Sc. (1904-1984), was a distinguished scientist, physicist and engineer. He earned his D.Sc. in Physics from the Sorbonne and was a close associate of Nobel Prize Laureate Frederic Joliot-Curie at the Curie Institute in Paris, where they conducted research together. He was also a respected Judo instructor and author of many books on the subject. Living in England in the 1940s, Feldenkrais found himself unable to walk after suffering a serious knee injury. He began an intense exploration into the relationship between bodily movement and healing, feeling, thinking, and learning. As a result, he restored his ability to walk and made revolutionary discoveries culminating in the development of the method that bears his name.
