The Feldenkrais International Training Centre (ITC) was the first training centre in the UK, and one of the first training centres to be established in Europe and continues to attract students from all over the world. Its international staff is drawn from the most highly experienced Trainers and Assistants teaching the Feldenkrais Method today. The trainings are accredited by the European Training Accreditation Board of the International Feldenkrais Federation.
The Feldenkrais Method is featured in the newly published best-seller, 'The Brain's Way of Healing' by Norman Doidge.
WHAT IS THE FELDENKRAIS METHOD?
The Feldenkrais Method is at the leading edge of the emerging field of somatic education. Based on the work of Moshe Feldenkrais (1904 - 84) and influenced by his expertise in physics, engineering and judo, the Feldenkrais Method draws together both the science and the art of human movement. It is unique in that it is based on sound mechanical and neurological principles and yet is easily accessible through simple practical lessons.
Through its emphasis on experiential learning, the method offers a means to improve many aspects of everyday life -- from sitting and walking more comfortably to performing a highly developed skill more efficiently, to easier interpersonal relations. Through exploring patterns of everyday movement, the Method encourages the discovery of new possibilities and choices. The Feldenkrais Method can be experienced in group classes in Awareness through Movement as well as in individual lessons in Functional Integration.
