The Feldenkrais Method began to be developed by Moshe Feldenkrais during the Second World War. He began teaching it publicly in Israel in the 1960s. The aim is to teach through movement how to improve an individual's capabilities to function in his or her daily life.

Feldenkrais called his individual work 'Functional Integration' and his group work 'Awareness through Movement'. The individual work incorporates touch by the practitioner to create new movement and awareness possibilities. In the group work the Feldenkrais practitioner verbally guides the class through a sequence of movement sequences.
