These lessons were designed by Moshe Feldenkrais and are brilliant in formation and process. Surprising changes happen after the lesson that stay with participants and help you with daily activities, says Fariya.

Bishop John O’Mara from Holy Rosary Church writes in a testimonial note: “Thank you Fariya for keeping me mobile for over 19 years! At the age of 95 I am still doing what I love.”
