In 1981 Moshe taught a series of workshops in the US before heading to Amherst for the teacher training there. Moshe was at a creative peak with these workshops and they remain legendary events in history of the Method in the US. Of special interest to practitioners is the way Moshe interweaves the lessons for the public and the lessons he chooses. We are pleased to be publishing a re-mastered version of the DC Quest workshop. The workshop spreads over five days and includes (13) ATM lessons. Click below to see a complete index of titles:

Moshe Feldenkrais, D. Sc. (1904 - 1984) began developing what has become known as the Feldenkrais Method after he sustained a crippling knee injury while working in England during World War II. His own recovery process and subsequent wide-ranging research resulted in the creation of a unique educational system that incorporated his background in physics, Judo, and a lifelong interest in human development. By the end of Dr. Feldenkrais’s life, the Feldenkrais Method had gained an International reputation and he had trained a significant number of teachers. The Method that bears his name continues to evolve and spread across the globe.
