Using the Feldenkrais Method, I support you in finding new possibilities. Where you want to go and what you take with you is your own decision. 

I give individual lessons and teach group classes in Zurich Aussersihl.

Feldenkrais Method

The Feldenkrais Method is a learning practice in which you explore your movement patterns through slow variations, pausing and repetition. 

In the process, it trains your physical, mental and emotional awareness and helps you to find new possibilities in movement. 

It can offer support for emotional and physical complaints or pain, innate limitations or the desire to improve an existing ability.

In individual lessons you are touched precisely and moved slowly. In group lessons you move yourself following verbal instructions. Both formats work with the same principles and can complement each other.

The Feldenkrais Method can help you to strengthen your own inherent resources, find new spontaneity, overcome unhelpful patterns related to stress and movement, improve your coordination and stability and give you more ease and self-confidence.

Among other things, it can be helpful in these areas:

  • Stress and anxiety
  • Coping with life crises
  • Depressive feelings
  • Psychosomatic symptoms
  • Chronic pain
  • Musculoskeletal disorders
  • Tension pain
  • Rehabilitation after injuries or surgeries
  • Support in neurological illnesses

In all this, he method is, above all, a practice of self-awareness. It gives you time, provides specific advice, encourages you to try things out and make mistakes and rebuilds connections within yourself and in the world outside.

The method is named after its developer Moshé Feldenkrais (1904 - 1984), who in it integrated knowledge from pedagogy, psychology, biomechanics, systems theory, brain research, manual therapy and martial arts.

Group classes

The group class is a quiet movement play without comparison with others. Using words, I guide you through short sequences of movements and direct your attention. 

Many lessons take place while lying down, but there are also lessons in sitting, kneeling or standing.

In the course I speak German. Participation is very often also possible with physical limitations or disabilities. If you would like to discuss this with me, please call or write me.

One class lasts 45 to 60 minutes. You can join the course at any time by contacting me. Please bring comfortable and warm clothes. 

A series of five sessions is based on a specific theme. You can find the current theme here.

About me

Andreas Kleemann

In search of ways to cope with physical limitations accompanying me since birth, I found the Feldenkrais Method by chance in 2011.

It showed me how valuable it can be to receive impulses through movements and touch that propose something new to me while accepting my limits.

Meanwhile, it is an everyday practice to me, reminding me of forgotten things and suggesting new directions. It makes me laugh at myself and helps me to take my own needs seriously. I sense connections through it and it gives me rest.

Since 2017 it is my profession also.

Working together in a body-centred approach requires awareness from and trust towards me. Searching for connections is as important to me as seeing and valuing differences and accepting the non-understanding.

I am white and cis male. My disability is mostly invisible. My country of birth no longer exists. Part of my family belonged to an unwanted people. My daily life is pretty much discrimination-free, in most areas I have great advantages.

Through the Feldenkrais Method I am always relearning to ask and to listen. It helps me to meet others, as social and biological beings. And in doing so, to create a space in which breath, gravity and one's own history can connect in new ways and other action becomes possible.

I am a qualified Feldenkrais practitioner and a certified member of the Swiss Feldenkrais Association.

Since 2019, I do belong to the network of accompagno where I am also part of the association board since 2020.
