Easy Feldenkrais is a complete system for reducing pain and improving how you move and helping you stay independent, pain-free, and active.
Many of the sessions are short and easy-to-do. Others and long and complex. You pick your journey.
These are sessions that you can do in the comfort of your own home or office. No need to travel or pay a lot of money.
Many people do Feldenkrais because they have specific physical needs that they want to be addressed, such as freeing the neck, back, shoulders, or spine. They want to reduce tension, improve balance and stability, age more gracefully...what is your reason?
Others are primarily looking for more freedom and options psychologically and emotionally.
My Feldenkrais sessions can do that all of that for you.
How? By eliminating chronic stress and anxiety that you may have (often without realizing it). As the stress and anxiety go away you will start doing things in a new way and experiencing the world differently. Start engaging in new activities. Learn new things. Travel. Have fun! Explore.
Regain the ability to do lost activities loved activities such as biking, hiking, dancing or Yoga.
Keep moving and keep doing Feldenkrais
Easy Feldenkrais is the evolution of my 21 years of teaching the work in live workshops, universities, drug rehabilitation centers, and elsewhere, and also my 11 years of promoting Feldenkrais online, blogging, podcasting, and recording sessions. Doing all that I can to make the work more available to more people at a reasonable cost.
In addition to the hundreds of sessions that are on the site ready for you right now, you will also get in your inbox - every 7 days - a link to a new Feldenkrais session.
These are sessions that you can listen to online and also download and add to your private Feldenkrais collection. You can use them to transform your movement, your thinking, your emotion, your self-image, and begin to build and amplify the life that you want to have.
There are short "beginner" sessions that are simple and easy for you to do. And also longer, advanced sessions.
There are now more than 73 advanced sessions from the famed Alexander Yanai sessions and the classic Esalen workshop.
How easy is it to do these sessions? If you can find 25 to 30 minutes and if you know how to push the "play" button on your computer, you can do them. Really. Even a child can do these sessions. It is that easy.
Most of these Feldenkrais sessions will be done while you are lying on the floor or bed. Others will be done while you are sitting in a chair, making it easy to integrate Feldenkrais into your life. (Regardless of your schedule).
And you can do them where ever and wherever it is convenient for you - in your office, at home, heck, you can even try some of the sitting sessions while taking a train or bus somewhere. How you use them is up to you.
"Ryan makes one-of-a-kind recordings, clear, well-paced with some quirky and endearing trademark features. Lots of energy and variation, strategic repetitions, humorous check-ups ('you are still breathing aren't you?!') and a feeling that he's right there with you - that's nice! Very nice" - Michael Maltby
"I am very excited to have these lessons at hand now.
I really look forward to doing them, I have already done three today.
You are very clear and easy to listen to. No mucking about.
Thank you." Rebecca Crawford, Australia
Sign-Up Process and Site Walkthrough
I want to show you how you what happens after you join and what the site and private FB group look like:
A partial list of sessions on the site now
A Sample of the short sessions In sitting
Sitting and Turning #1: A 16-minute session, with some classic Feldenkrais movements done in sitting.
Bending side-to-side in sitting A short, but powerful session, 21 minutes.
Smartphone/Tablet Session #1: A 12-minute session on using your smartphone or tablet differently
Turning and the Eyes A 12-minute session. Staring at a computer or smartphone can be stressful to the eyes and brain. Use this short session to relax, de-stress, and move easier.
Oiling The Hip Joints Hot off the press... a 22-minute session in sitting that manages to fit in quite a few movement variations and help open and relax your hips, pelvis, lower back, and neck.
A sample of the short sessions in lying
Scan: Your Five Cardinal Lines. A 7-minute session that is ONLY a scan. It is adapted from a session that Feldenkrais taught at Esalen.
Rolling Your Head While Lying: A wonderful 12-minute lying session. Relax your neck and move easier!
30 Minutes Sessions
A complete workshop, suitable for beginners...and growing every month:
1. "Tilting The Legs, Rolling The Head:
If you are new to Feldenkrais, this would be a good first session. It is also a good session to start teaching if you are a practitioner.
2. Shoulder Circles: A simple 35-minute session that can have profound effects on those of us who spend time sitting and using computers and other devices.
3. Hip and Shoulder Movements (on the left side). I just put this one up a few days ago and people are loving it. a 23-minute session
4. What is Flexion? ohhh this was relaxing and illuminating for me. I hope it is the same for you. 35 minutes, lying on the back.
5. Pelvic Clock Feldenkrais included some type of "pelvic clock" lesson in every public workshop that he taught. So...you can guess he felt it important. 32 minutes, lying on the back.
Plus nearly a dozen more sessions. All one page for easy use.
Here is a partial list of the Alexander Yanai and Esalen Sessions you will have access to Partial AY List.
These are advanced and rare sessions - not normally available to the public, Sessions that Feldenkrais taught in his studio in Israel (on Alexander Yanai street) for decades. These sessions alone will be worth the cost of admission to Easy Feldenkrais. They are truly unique and life-changing sessions. Many are rarely taught and only available in advanced workshops and Feldenkrais trainings. Dozens are on the site and more are coming
Update 11/25/2021 - Below is just a *sample* of the sessions on the site. There are now more than 81 advanced sessions from the famed Alexander Yanai sessions and the classic Esalen workshop. Plus an additional 19 Advanced sessions called, "New Synthesis" that were recorded recently and not available anywhere else.
Alexander Yanai #1: Tilting the Head (Sitting on the Floor): The title of this session does not do it justice! It involves movements of the head, neck, jaw, and spine that are very unique and can be very powerful...
Alexander Yanai #2: Seeing The Heels : This is a challenging session...so be careful! It includes key Feldenkrais movement ideas that Moshe included in virtually all of his public workshops but with some very unique variations.
Alexander Yanai #82: A Clock In Front of The Face:
Feldenkrais taught variations of this session at his studio in Alexander Yanai, at Esalen, and in nearly all of his trainings and public workshops. It was also in the Awareness Through Movement book.
Alexander Yanai #146: Bending the Spine In Sitting. This is a somewhat long, complex...and beautiful (in my opinion) Feldenkrais session from Alexander Yanai. That is done in a chair.
Alexander Yanai #147: Standing up from A Chair with Crossed Legs. Oh boy! This is a challenging session that people will often say is "not a public session," but I disagree. Go slow, only do what you can do and stop whenever you want.
Alexander Yanai #148: Twisting, Bending Spine (Intense)
Be careful with this one! It is a complex and challenging session, rarely taught outside of extended Feldenkrais trainings. Go very slow and stop whenever you want. Feel free to only do part of this session.
There are more Alexander Yanai- based sessions on the site now, too many to list individually. And more are on the way.
A complete Feldenkrais Breathing Workshop
The breathing sessions are gentle but can have some very cool, relaxing, and yes - powerful effects. I once used them to get out of some lower back pain that I was having. And others have mentioned something similar.
There are 6 sessions in the better breathing series plus other sessions related to breathing.
Feldenkrais for TMJ, Neck and Shoulder Pain
Twelve sessions specifically designed to eliminate jaw pain. Several of the sessions are very rare, originating from Moshe's Alexander Yanai sessions.
Plus many other sessions, including 5 that you can do while sitting, 7 longer (45 minutes) sessions from my Feldenkrais Classics series. And several sessions from the Awareness Through Movement.
And more sessions will come your way each and every week.
Bonus 1: Private Facebook Group
Community and sharing are important. Because of this, I have created a private Facebook group where you can share your thoughts and get your questions answered. And the posts and conversations are only able to be seen by members. The group for the Easy Feldenkrais series will be just for you - just for us - to talk about and share our experiences with the sessions and with the work.
"I am the one who has been emailing and who hurt her back falling at Kaiser emergency room. I want to tell you that your downloads have made me very aware of the tension that has been held in my body, I must say that I have not had a headache - at all - for about three days!! What happened was, I went into your sessions and into myself and I realized WHERE the problem was coming from. I finally found the source...Thank you! You are one of three "heroes" in my life right now - there is you, my "coach" who does acupressure and massage,and my Feldenkrais practitioner, who personally trained with Moshe Feldenkrais....thank you, Ryan. " - Melinda Frances, California
"Thanks so much for offering this work at an affordable price. It is a real gift. - Adrienne"
"Ryan's delivery is excellent and well-paced, and very easy to follow. One of the best ways to pursue a Feldenkrais program independently." – Yvonne
"I've enjoyed every one of your offerings so far and am eager to see what you come up with next! I don't like going out to a studio to do lessons as it is much more convenient to do them at home on my own schedule. So glad to have the opportunity to discover these lessons this way. Many thanks" -Adrienne
Bonus 2: Transcripts of the sessions
All of the sessions on the site come with professionally-created transcripts. Use them to integrate the materials into your own Feldenkrais-based classes and workshops and to further your own learning.

Once you join you will create a username and password and will be redirected to the members-only area where you will be able to listen to and download the Feldenkrais sessions (and bonuses) as they are released. At least one new session will be released every week, though very often it will be more, and they will be announced directly to you via email.
