Each faculty member offers private lessons called Functional Integration. These one-on-one sessions provide an opportunity for the student to accelerate the learning of alternatives to habitual patterns of organization. Those with chronic pain or movement limitations, or those who would like the benefit of individual help, will find that these lessons are a potent means of improving daily function, as well as an excellent preparation for Awareness Through Movement classes.

The cost of the lesson varies with the individual teacher. In some instances, medical insurance may cover the practitioner's lesson fee.

All Feldenkrais Learning Center faculty members are certified by the Feldenkrais Guild of North America® to teach both Awareness Through Movement® and Functional Integration®.


Faculty Sightings

Here's what some of our faculty have been up to in addition to the classes and workshops they are offering at the Center.

Marcy Lindheimer
Marcy will be traveling this month to Tucson, AZ to co-teach the first segment of the 10th Anat Baniel Method® NeuroMovement® Basic Training. The training will meet from September 21-29.  There are still a few openings, so if you’re interested in receiving information about enrolling, email: breta@anatbanielmethod.com

Bob Etherington
Bob Etherington taught functional anatomy workshops at teacher trainings for Tai Chi practitioners in Massachusetts and Sardinia, Italy this summer. Bob will be serving the final year of his term as President of the Tai Chi Foundation this coming year. The material that he taught is based largely on his education and experience in his Feldenkrais Method practice over the past 30 years. Bob looks to bring this experience to his classes this fall. 

Scott Fraser
Scott is looking forward to teaching ATM to the executive committee of the Institute for Comparative Literature and Society at Columbia University during their retreat this September.

Julie Sandler-Friedman
Julie is giving lecture-demonstrations at NYC hospitals which host a Gilda's Club for cancer survivors. These lecture-demonstrations incorporate short ATM experiences for participants into the lecture material.

Jill Van Note
Jill has been happily living and working from Maine the past 8 weeks, and is looking forward to resuming teaching in NYC – and particularly at the FLC – Wednesdays @ 7 pm. She has spent quiet summer mornings swimming in a tidal cove and reading Mark Reese’s comprehensive biography of Dr. Feldenkrais’ early years and the development of the MethodMoshe Feldenkrais: A Life in Movement.

"My experience with Feldenkrais has been one of profound subtlety. Through Feldenkrais I have found that my vocabulary for describing sensation has vastly improved. Creativity comes freely when chronicling my reflections on ATM lessons. This benefit also carries over into my language outside of the FLC. In me a sense of exploration and discovery has been renewed. Within the practice of ATM, I allow patience to guide while curiosity and playfulness participate. I am taught, time and time again, the value of open mindedness and receptivity. I have noticed a change in my relationship toward habitual movements and thought patterns. Old conventions are being shaken free. I feel as though the roots of growth and potential that reach out from me and into the world are not merely spreading but becoming heartier and revitalized. This is a delicately invigorating practice that can permeate so many systems of life — granting a universal vibrancy as it goes."
Kate Linton, Creative Arts Therapies student

"Thank you for the powerful workshop! During these three hours, under the highly informed and exquisitely graceful guidance of the Feldenkrais Learning Center’s teacher, I felt as if I had quietly, yet powerfully, accessed some of the deepest places in my body and spirit and was able to integrate these subtle elements of incremental change toward a more authentic sense of being. It was truly transformational! Thank you!"
Diana Silva

"It is a pleasure to testify to the effectiveness of the Feldenkrais Method which has helped me through the 20 years since my diagnosis of Parkinson ’s disease. I feel less tense after a lesson, more balanced and I have more energy. It helps more than anything else has--to the point that my neurologist guessed when my Feldenkrais practitioner was out of town because my symptoms increased temporarily. I am so grateful, I tell everyone about Feldenkrais."
Dinah Flusser, Diplomat

"In exposing me to new options for movement, the skilled and compassionate teachers at the Feldenkrais Learning Center have taught me an even more important lesson: that it is possible to overcome seemingly insurmountable limitations - not just in movement, but in every aspect of life."
Madeline Rogers
