Origin

The Jeremy Krauss Approach is a unique way of helping Special Needs Children learn, grow and develop based on the work of Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais.

The Feldenkrais® Method

After decades of research work, Moshe Feldenkrais developed a new method of somatic learning. This method was based on his excellent understanding of and interest in biomechanics, physics, neurobiology and ethology. The Feldenkrais Method with its practical application approach offers access to help people exploit their potentials on the physical, mental and emotional levels.

Feldenkrais and children

Time and again, Moshe Feldenkrais worked with physically and mentally challenged children, but he did not pass on his approach or teach it to any of his students. Even today, this area is not being taught in the Feldenkrais Training Programmes, which are aligned to the provisions of IFF (Int. Feldenkrais Federation).

„JKA – Jeremy Krauss Approach“

Out of necessity and personal interest, Jeremy Krauss has developed a unique way of helping Special Needs Children with developmental delays to grow and develop. In the form of a 1-year JKA training programme, Jeremy primarily teaches Feldenkrais based practitioners, but also parents of Special Needs Children and professionals.
