A note from Nick:
In 2015, after years of doing Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement lessons and teaching them to hundreds of students, I started recording them and offering the recordings online, at no charge, as a personal passion project. My vision was simply to share the life-changing benefits of the Feldenkrais Method as widely as possible. Interest took off, and as the project grew I realized I could not sustain it given my technology costs and volunteered time. On a whim, I created a PayPal donate button and asked my listeners for support.
To my amazement, listeners began to contribute! Then and now, thanks to free-will, heartfelt donations from the global and growing Feldenkrais Project community, there’s still no paywall for students who may not be able to access Feldenkrais classes or one-to-one lessons, or want a great resource for studying Feldenkrais at home.
For the last few years I’ve been dreaming of having a unique site and name for the growing lesson collection and community. We announced the Feldenkrais Project name in August 2018, and started fundraising for this website in September. The fundraising campaign was a humbling success. We raised over $8000, which we used to pay our web developer, our consultant, and our artist (see below). Construction began January 2019 and the site launched in early March.
