The Bookshop

In the Feldenkrais Method®, we speak of successive performance of the movements in a lesson as "approximations", that is, the movement throughoutthe lesson will change and be refined by the addition of information of various kinds. Thus, the movement will go through various approximations throughout the lesson and, in fact every time the lesson is done
Improvement is always possible.
This is our first approximation of our means to provide products to assist our visitors in their efforts to enhance their lives in various ways.
