About the Feldenkrais Method

The Feldenkrais Method  has broad application in populations interested in improving awareness, health, and ease of function. [1]

The Feldenkrais Method is gentle and noninvasive, and has no contraindications in the medical sense of that term. [2]

The Feldenkrais Method is a movement education technique that emphasizes movement teaching based on sensory motor awareness and cognitive perception of the movement. [3]

The Feldenkrais Method is an educational system designed to use movement and perception to foster individualized improvement in function. [4]

Dynamic systems theorists and Feldenkrais practitioners both describe human behavior as self-organizing from individual, complex, continual processes that relate perception, action, and experience. Stable behaviors need to be perturbed to permit their reorganization into related or new patterns of coordination. [5]

„The mind gradually develops and begins to program the functioning of the brain. My way of looking at the mind and body involves a subtle method of 'rewiring' the structures of the entire human being to be functionally well integrated, which means being able to do what the individual wants. Each individual has the choice to wire himself in a special way.”
– Moshe Feldenkrais, The Elusive Obvious

Lessons with Alfons

„Your touch is amazing! Maybe you have a mission to teach the world” – Catherina D., Journalist

„Alfons is a warm and understanding teacher. After receiving his Feldenkrais lessons I have been able to feel more at peace and flexible. Thank you Alfons.” – Samantha Brown, Bowen Therapist

„I had a herniated disc problem that bothered me for months and little progress in recovery. My wife had the idea to supplement my visits to my Osteopath with Feldenkrais, that's why I looked up Alfons. His touch was very subtle and light, so it's still a miracle to me how it worked. But my Osteopath told me he had never seen such a quick and full recovery before. I'm fully recovered and can certainly recommend this Feldenkrais work” – Nathan B., CEO
