They run on Saturdays at The Friends Meeting House in Penrith.
The workshops use the Feldenkrais approach, which
is increasingly validated by new research in neuroscience
- “Feldenkrais is not just
pushing muscles around, but changing things in the brain itself” says
Neuroscientist Karl Pribram M.D. (Stanford University, Winner of the Havel
Prize in Neuroscience). Many Feldenkrais practitioners are health
professionals, mostly physios and GPs, some scientists in other fields; Feldenkrais
himself was an engineer, physicist - and
judo expert. Other practitioners are sports specialists, and performers.
