“In Moshé Feldenkrais at long last I have met someone with a scientific formation who possesses a global mastery of his subject.

It is out of this notion that he has developed his teachings in which most of the oriental and occidental systems are found included…he has perfected hundreds of exercises of exceptional value.”
