Functional Integration

The second way to teach the method is called Functional Integration® (FI); it is a hands-on treatment custom-tailored to your personal needs. In distinction to the lections in awareness through movement you are being moved by the practitioner and you don’t have to be physically active. The communication occurs through direct contact and happens mainly wordless.

Being based on the same principals as the group-lections, the one-to-one situation allows the Feldenkraisteacher to finely tune the subject matter to whatever the student needs or likes to learn. Both approaches make use of the nervous systems capability to self-organisation of efficient and functional action.

The individualized lections (about 45min) often result in direct improvement and bring about an augmentation of flexibility, an altered sensation of the body and general wellbeing, comparable to a deep and refreshing sleep.
