Moshe Feldenkrais, D.Sc., (1904-1984) creator of the Feldenkrais Method of Somatic Education, was a physicist, engineer, Judo Master, educator and researcher. In his search for ways to help himself overcome disabilities resulting from a knee injury suffered in a soccer game, he made revolutionary discoveries about the relationship between bodily movement and the ways we think, feel, sense and learn. His work continues to influence such fields as performing arts, sports, and physical therapy.

Some quotable quotes:

"Movement is life; without movement, life is unthinkable"
"What I am after is not just flexible bodies, but flexible minds."

"After just a few movements of the Feldenkrais exercises, people often find themselves, as if by magic, easily doing things with their bodies that they never thought possible."

"The Feldenkrais work is the most sophisticated and effective method I have seen for the prevention and reversal of deterioration of function."

"The Feldenkrais Method is not just pushing muscles around, but really changing things in the brain."

"The system developed by Moshe Feldenkrais...has as much potential for understanding the mind/body relationship as Einstein's general theory of relativity had for physics."

"The Feldenkrais Method [has] had remarkable success in...a wide range of chronic complaints ranging from the debilitating, such as cerebral palsy or paralysis, to the merely nagging, such as stiff necks, tension headaches or the blahs."

"The Feldenkrais work has had an enormous effect on the way I run and on the way I live my life. My knee problem vanished. I've increased my mileage considerably without a trace of difficulty. I'm running faster.

"The exercises are ingenious and startling in their effectiveness. Moshe Feldenkrais has found a way to free people to be more creative intellectually and more flexible and flowing physically."
