Moshe Feldenkrais
Moshe Feldenkrais (1904-1984), the developer of the Feldenkrais Method, authored a number of seminal books on movement, learning, human consciousness and somatic experience. He taught in Israel and many countries in Europe through the 1960s and 1970s and in North America through the 1970s and 1980s. In his life Dr. Feldenkrais worked with all kinds of people with an enormous range of learning needs — from many infants with Cerebral Palsy to leading performers such as the violinist, the late Yehudi Menuhin. He was a collaborator with thinkers such as anthropologist Margaret Mead, neuroscientist Karl Pribram and explorers of the psychophysical Jean Houston and Robert Masters. The breadth, vitality and precision of Dr. Feldenkrais' work has seen it applied in diverse fields including neurology, psychology, performing arts, sports and rehabilitation.
