Feldenkrais Method and Children

Feldenkrais is very effective in working with children with developmental difficulties. In order to have the greatest impact on a child's learning and development it is necessary to work with a child as soon as possible. In individual sessions with Yulia, each child is given the possibility of engaging in a gentle and natural learning process based on movement. Unlike other pediatric interventions that often treat a child's body with stretching, mobilization and positioning techniques, The Feldenkrais Method engages the whole child in a gentle way that fosters the exploration and use of better movement patterns to promote healthy development.
