In one-to-one lessons, called Function Integration® lessons, the practitioner moves the student within his or her comfort range, reminding the student’s nervous system of fundamental movement patterns that can be accessed for greater comfort and skill in action. The force of longstanding habits may be reduced as new options become real choices. Feldenkrais practitioners address the whole person and seek to understand global movement patterns that may be responsible for individual symptoms. In these lessons of 45 minutes to one hour, the student wears comfortable clothing. An initial lesson may take up to an hour and a half, allowing time for an introductory interview.
"The body reflects the attitudes of the mind. Improve the function of the body and you improve the state of the mind." --- Moshe Feldenkrais
