Programs for Children

TFC Feldenkrais for Children Program

The Feldenkrais for Children Program is run under the supervision of Sheryl Field.
Based on the Feldenkrais Method, it is designed to help children who need extra support and time to develop their motor control, balance, coordination, and attention.

*The Feldenkrais Method® is a gentle, movement-based approach for learning which provides the child with motor problems appropriate sensory motor experiences that will allow the child to feel movement and control, that she/he may not be able to on her/his own. This natural approach affords the children the chance to realize their own ability to learn, move and improve.

Each year, the program begins in October and runs through June.
