The FP's lessons are mostly audio because it's usually the best way to study Feldenkrais at home. (Why? Check out our FAQ.)

But there are exceptions, and our donors have exclusive access! We offer 12 extra lessons in the events below as video because

  • they include screenshare illustrations
  • or they're special events with Q&A, class discussion, or discussion of The FP intended for all donors
  • or they're alternate teachings of our primary audio lessons

We've used gallery Zoom recordings where possible. It's fun to feel part of a "classroom" of students sometimes!
