30-Day Online Course
Suitable for Everyone
Each step can be therapeutic. Every stride can bring healing. Walking aids digestion, promotes good circulation, and moves every joint of your body. Evidence shows walking can decrease the risk of Type 2 diabetes, heart attack, and bone fracture. It can heal our body and mind, reduce stress and depression, and even improve cancer survival rates!
Our 30-day online program will help you improve your posture, balance, and mobility while walking. The workshop is composed of:
- Five 90-minute sessions that each include essential theory to expand your understanding of your body, a complete Feldenkrais lesson, and a Q&A section.
- 25 short daily practices (theme of the day) designed to solidify your new and healthier habits.
This workshop is appropriate for everyone, from the person who has difficulty walking a short distance to the avid hiker.

What is the Feldenkrais Method?
Your movements are precious. They’re likely the most significant expression of your life.
How you move matters profoundly.
We employ the Feldenkrais Method to help you move better, way better!
The Feldenkrais Method is a gentle, slow, and meditative learning process based on your body’s natural movements.
The accent is on your first-hand experience, similar to the organic process you experienced when you were a baby, learning to roll over or make your first steps.
Guided verbally by Marek you perform precise movement sequences that lead to those “aha – that feels better” moments.
The gentle movements done with awareness improve your skeleton, muscles, and brain. They create healthy, graceful, precise, and deliberate motion! Watch how a better movement helps you relieve the pain, heal the injury, and be who you always wanted to be.
…I love the clarity of the explanations, the mix of theory and practice, and the encouraging and relaxed tone… these lessons have been very effective. Thanks so much.
Fine class. Teacher is sincere, methodical, patient and caring. He shares his depth of knowledge through diagrams, all the slow explorations, and his engaging question and answer periods at the end. During those periods he talks to his participants answering their questions at the levels of complexity that they can understand[…]
wonderful class and intro to Feldenkrais for me. I’m hooked. Both on content and on the way Marek teaches, with anatomy and concepts first so I can visualize where to feel and then the experiential component. Excellent class[…]
