The Feldenkrais Method® – Learning Through Movement

covers the Feldenkrais Method and the concept of somatic education on which it is built, where movement is informed by the conscious brain and nervous system rather than by habit.
While the focus is on the Method and its applications, the book also demonstrates how it interacts with other systems of movement.
