Moshe Feldenkrais!

helped invent radium & SONAR, started judo in Europe, and after a serious knee injury taught himself to walk again by studying and re-engaging developmental patterns and discovering that sensation is a key to learning and moving...his move-to-heal-your-brain-ideas of the middle 20th century are now being proven through science (neuroplasticity)

Gautama / Buddha!

a student of yoga who found that the yoga teachings of his day did not help him...eventually found enlightenment -- bliss, ecstasy, freedom -- by doing nothing...radical!...his ideas preserved in the vipassana meditation tradition have a lot of intersections with Feldenkrais' knowing oneself through sensation

Ruthy Alon!

a long-time student of Feldenkrais, she created her own significant work called Movement Intelligence and healed her own osteopenia and rounded upper back...all through gentle movement done in clever, intelligent ways that anyone can play with for their health and to improve any way you'd like to move -- from walking to Olympic gold!

Krishnamacharya!

the most learned teacher of yoga in India who died in 1989 at the age of 101, he invented most of the yoga-shapes we think are 'traditional' to meet each of his students where they are...first yoga teacher to allow women to become teachers too...teacher of BKS Iyengar, Pattabhi Jois (Ashtanga Yoga), Indra Devi, Desikachar, AG Mohan...and you!
