Moshe Feldenkrais – Last Teacher

Feldenkrais: Last Teacher

Rather than “fixing” the body, Moshe Feldenkrais taught how to expand its capacities and ranges of choice.  “I am going to be your last teacher. Not because I’ll be the greatest teacher you may ever encounter, but because from me you will learn how to learn. When you learn how to learn, you will realize that there are no teachers, that there are only people learning and people learning how to facilitate learning.” With those words Moshe Feldenkrais began his first North American training in June 1975.

How does the Feldenkrais Method® differ from other techniques?

Feldenkrais Method® differences

The emphasis in the Feldenkrais method® is in the learning process that brings the student to increase his/her awareness about his/her inefficient way to move the body caused by habitual patterns and discover new alternatives which result in a better flexibility and coordination. The Feldenkrais Method® is a learning process that can last for the entire life and it is based on the idea that everyone can learn how to use his/her body in a more functional and efficient way through the neuroplasticity of the brain, the ability to replace old and ineffective habits with new ones which are functional and useful for one’s life.
