Individual Feldenkrais integration lessons
Functional Integration (FI) is a hands-on technique for individuals who prefer or require more individualized attention. Although it possesses significant medical and therapeutic benefits, Functional Integration is neither medical nor therapeutic in its philosophy and technique; it is learning-based and primarily nonverbal.
Benefits are achieved by enhancing the efficiency, coordination, and grace of an individual’s posture and movement.Lessons can be done with the student lying on a firm but comfortable work table, standing, or sitting. The practitioner gently touches or moves the student in a wide variety of ways to facilitate awareness, learning, and vitality.
Gradually the student is led to organize new movement patterns through both conscious and subconscious learning.
Intensive Individual sessions for children with special needs can be done daily or twice daily.
Feldenkrais is not just pushing muscles around, but changing things in the brain itself.
