Feldenkrais Method

The Feldenkrais method was developed by Moshe Feldenkrais, a doctor of Science in physics, a biomechanist and an exceptional Judaist. His knee injury led to his persistence to optimize his movements to make it more effective as well as safe. 

His unique approach allows you to improve your self-awareness and therefore develop your potentials. It is suitable for you, if you would like to improve own movement, make it easier, safer, more powerful and gracious. 

 

It is applied through individual Functional Integration lessons and through Awareness through movement group lessons. Learn more:
 

 
 

Hi I'm Špela

MSc Sport Science, BSc Kinesiology, Feldenkrais Student

Passion for movement illustrates my character flawlessly. I love to move and since my Feldenkrais Training, I also love to feel myself while moving. But it wasn't always like that. I finished bachelor of kinesiology in Ljubljana and master of training therapy in Vienna and always  trying out various sports, methods, and therapies. I have still had a feeling that I am missing something in my movement, though that “something” was hard to pinpoint.

At the time I visited my first Feldenkrais weekend Workshop, I experienced terrible back pain after years of training. I couldn’t stand for more than 5 minutes, without wanting to sit down. I already tried various methods to alleviate the pain with little to no effect. I ran out of ideas since I tried so many things. I had great body stability, I performed well on various tests, but the pain was always present.

On the first encounter with the Feldenkrais Method I was surprised by the agility of the 80 year old workshop conductor. He appeared as if skipping on clouds. And on the second day of the workshop I felt similar. After a long time I felt comfortable in my own body again. After those two days I decided I wanted to complete the 4-years of Feldenkrais training. The back pain of course didn’t magically go away overnight. Instead they were slowly replaced with the pleasant sensations of being able to move freely and lightly. Since I am practicing Feldenkrais Method I feel better in my own body than ever before.

The Feldenkrais Method is truly the best method I have encountered thus far. When I am teaching it I find it delightful that I get to transfer my feelings and love for movement onto others. Above all, I strive to pass on those little details, which in my opinion make the movement so enjoyable, relaxed, natural, energetic and calm at the same time.
