The Work of Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais, Voume I & II

By Moshe Feldenkrais

The Work of Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais DVD set is one of the few professionally recorded examples of Dr. Feldenkrais presenting both Awareness Through Movement, Functional Integrationand basic theory of the Feldenkrais Method to the general public.

Please choose format:

This two-DVD set contains eight informative, self-contained, 30-minute segments. Each DVD includes lectures pertaining to the theory of the Feldenkrais Method.The first DVD explores the theories presented and expands upon them during a demonstration of the hands-on approach of the Method, known as Functional Integration. The second DVD continues to explore the theory of Functional Integration and concludes with experiential Awareness Through Movement lessons.

It was videotaped in a Canadian television studio. The studio setting is dated, but the overall quality of the program is good. It is interesting to see how Moshe chooses in this context to present the Method to the general public. Included are two FI lessons with discussion about theoretical elements of FI and one ATM lesson led by Moshe, where again he explains elements of what he is doing. There are two lectures: one on posture and one titled “Talking Is not Thinking.”  These are short and focused classic talks making them quite accessible to a wide range of people. They are the strongest part of the overall program and some of the best options available for showing Moshe in a class or workshop.

Moshe Feldenkrais, D. Sc. (1904 - 1984) began developing what has become known as the Feldenkrais Method after he sustained a crippling knee injury while working in England during World War II. His own recovery process and subsequent wide-ranging research resulted in the creation of a unique educational system that incorporated his background in physics, Judo, and a lifelong interest in human development. By the end of Dr. Feldenkrais's life, the Feldenkrais Method had an international reputation, and he had trained a significant group of people who still carry on his work today as Feldenkrais teachers and trainers.
