What is it?
The Feldenkrais Method® Is a cutting-edge neuromuscular re-education that enables you to do what you want to do in life more easily, efficiently and with less strain or pain.
It works with the very individual patterns and habits of movement we have (including ‘posture’) enabling us to feel what we actually do in detail and open up new possibilties.
Its founder, nuclear physicist and Judo master Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais (1904-84) often enabled extraordinary improvement in those who came to work with him (sometimes travelling across the world to do so) – from those suffering from neurological disorder or chronic pain to sportsmen and women, professional dancers, musicians and other artists at the top of their game. Amngst others he worked with violinist Yeheudi Menuen, theatre director Peter Brook and Israeli Prime Minister Ben Gurion.

How does it work/process ?
There are two ways of experiencing the Method:
“Awareness Through Movement®” classes which take apart and put together carefully structured sequences of movement that form the building blocks of how we move, enabling you to feel how you personally do things and explore different possibilities to find new, more efficient and easier ways.
“Functional Integration” one-to-one hands on sessions where the practitioner can address your specific issues and needs very directly through gentle touch.
Victoria also does specific sessions for runners and leads workshops for the general public and for performing artists.
