Do Your Knees Have a Future?

More than 600,000 knee replacements are performed each year in the United States. With an aging population staying in the workforce longer and obesity on the rise, demand for total knee replacement surgery is expected to exceed 3 million by the year 2030.

This 1-day workshop will introduce you to the Feldenkrais principles that have helped thousands of people understand how to move with less pain and a safer self-image.  You'll learn how to both see and sense your knees more clearly than ever before. And you'll learn how to put these skills into your upright life on a daily basis.  

Andrew’s teaching (in a workshop on the Knees in October of 2012) helped me find the best organization of my legs I’ve ever experienced, both on the ground and on the pedals of my bike the next day.
