playing with your children and grandchildren, or performing a favorite pastime, these gentle

focuses on the relationship between movement and thought, increased mental awareness
and creativity accompany physical improvements. Everyone, from athletes and artists to
administrators and attorneys, can benefit from the Feldenkrais Method.
