Moshe Feldenkrais was born May 6, 1904 and each year the world-wide Feldenkrais community acknowledges and celebrates his contributions to improved human functioning. This year, Feldenkrais Week is May 6 - 15.

One of my practitioner colleagues, Buffy Owen, is also a talented graphic artist/video producer. She lends her creative talents to getting the word out about the Feldenkrais Method® especially during Feldenkrais Week. Check out this short video for a few simple movements to start off the day.

Class details are below if you'd like to get more ideas!
