Feldenkrais Illustrated: The Art of Learning is a work of art. Feldenkrais Practitioner, author, and artist, Tiffany Sankary has taken key ideas from the writings of Moshe Feldenkrais and presented them with illustrations. She notes in her introduction that Moshe’s writings can be dense, and can take the time to take his ideas in and work with them. Tiffany decompresses Feldenkrais’s writings by using illustrations to create space around them and making them easy to understand.
Depicting 25 fundamental principles of the Feldenkrais Method®, Feldenkrais Illustrated is a wonderful resource for the public as well as Practitioners and Trainees. Tiffany makes it easy to bring these ideas into an Awareness Through Movement® class, workshop or client conversation to deepen our student’s understanding of the Method.
“…interesting, inviting, accessible, intriguing and a pleasure to look at! Feldenkrais can be hard to read but Tiffany Sankary has fashioned a format that simply draws you in. I began reading it and could not stop…
