Feldenkrais South Africa has been successfully on-line since March  2020 with creative daily classes, providing an unprecedented opportunity for frequent practice, self-care, learning, and stress relief. " I regard your class as a lifesaver on a number of levels. Thank you from the depth of my being”. Mary S.  "We so look forward to your classes each day”. Liz D. "This is invaluable work and very rewarding..empowering us”. Simone B Physiotherapist.  

In Feldenkrais classes  following the teacher’s voice with clear cues is the key,  rather than copying movement, which makes the on-line format ideal. It is more like listening to a good radio broadcast,  than watching tv, making classes very restful and easy to follow.  You are guided into your sensation and own experience, learning from the inside out, rather than copying the teacher. Moreover, it makes Feldenkrais accessible to people living all over South Africa, as well as Europe, who cannot get to a specialized studio in Cape Town. The benefits, even over a screen,  include feeling more relaxed, alive, taller, supple, and agile, with a reduction of pain and limitations.
