At the Feldenkrais Project we do everything we can to make the life-changing benefits of Feldenkrais study available to anyone with an internet connection. Whenever possible, we recommend in-person study with a certified Feldenkrais Practitioner for these added benefits:

  • In live group Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement (ATM) classes, the instructor can give individualized feedback and guidance, and tailor the lesson to best meet the needs of the students.
  • In one-to-one Functional Integration (FI) lessons, the Feldenkrais Practitioner's hands and instructions guide your movement and attention in a gentle, non-invasive way, creating a very individualized learning environment.

Scroll down to view and link to 1) contact information for Feldenkrais Practitioners who are Founders or current Patron-level donors to the Feldenkrais Project, 2) Nick Strauss-Klein's local Feldenkrais practice in Minnesota, USA, 3) search the membership of the Feldenkrais Guild of North America (FGNA) and, 4) the member organizations of the International Feldenkrais Federation (IFF) in 21 countries.

Are you a Feldenkrais Practitioner and a current Patron of the Feldenkrais Project? If you wish, and you’re professionally certified in your country, we will proudly feature your practice’s website and/or contact information below for the duration of your Patron membership. If I’ve missed putting you on this page, or you have edits for your listing, please contact me! -Nick

      Thanks for offering! At this time we don’t have the resources to coordinate with official translators, but I can grant you permission to informally translate, in the spirit of spreading the benefits of Feldenkrais study as widely as possible (that’s our vision).

      ALWAYS name The Feldenkrais Project as your source, provide a LINK to the lesson audio player page for the lesson you translate and/or transcribe, and please recommend that anyone who accesses your translation donate to The Feldenkrais Project when possible.

      I do NOT give permission for direct translations (or my original audio) to be used to teach a group class. All Feldenkrais Project lessons are copyright by me, offered for personal use only.

      Thanks for your interest and understanding!
