Feldenkrais in the Classroom

Posted By: Christopher Moffett on January 22, 2003
Perhaps a bit off the beaten path, but absolutely worth looking into is the uses of the Feldenkrais Method of movement education within school settings. Off the top of my head, Chava Shelhav did her disertation on using movement in learning disabled classrooms. The leap to "regular" classes is a small one. I know others are using it in different contexts as well. (If you are interested I can probably dig up some more information.) I use it in my undergrad philosophy courses to bridge the gap between the life of the mind and the life of the body. Both philosophy and phys ed are typically marginalized in school settings for opposite but related reasons, and I find that they have much to offer each other when combined. I think that ought to qualify as experimental, yes?
