The Feldenkrais Method of Somatic Education® teaches self-understanding in order to cultivate efficiency and simplicity in an individual’s functioning. In other words, when you learn more about your self and the way you operate, you will also learn to function more efficiently and with greater ease without having to make any additional effort.
Working with a person’s body rather than with their intellect in order to influence their brain function is the basis of somatic practices.
Somatic practices, including the Feldenkrais Method®, are about:
• learning about ourselves with our own internal awareness,
• discovering and releasing our muscle tension,
• developing our own understanding of our existence, and
• becoming a complete, healthy human being.
