Feldenkrais Method® with Marion Appel 

The FELDENKRAIS METHOD® bridges health, education and the arts in a sophisticated approach to personal development and wellbeing. Conceived by Moshe Feldenkrais (1904-1984), in response to a soccer injury, the Feldenkrais Method has at its roots principles of physics and movement derived from his experience in engineering and martial arts. Benefits from the Feldenkrais Method include greater coordination, balance and performance, as well as relief from tension and discomfort. Marion Appel has been guild-certified since 2002; she has also studied kinesthetic anatomy and functional choreographies with Irene Dowd.
