Research

The International Feldenkrais® Federation (IFF) supports research related to the Feldenkrais Method® as well as the collection and dissemination of information regarding relevant scholarly publications for the benefit of the international community. It does so through the Feldenkrais Research Journal and an open-access Feldenkrais reference database.

IFF Feldenkrais Research Journal

The Feldenkrais Research Journal is an international, interdisciplinary journal concerned with research issues for the Feldenkrais professional field and for those interested in this form of somatic learning in human development. The Journal is aiming at a dialogue within the professional field about research – and a dialogue with science and scientists about their practice.

Four volumes of the Journal were published between 2004 and 2008. After an eight-year hiatus, volume 5 is now available online, and the editors are taking submissions for volume 6.

Reference Database

The number of scholarly publications related to the Feldenkrais Method is continuously rising. The IFF supports the maintenance of an open-access reference database that provides an easy-to-navigate, continuously updated repository of available materials for Feldenkrais practitioners, researchers, and the public.

Curated Collections

In order to allow easier and quicker direct access to the most interesting publications, the IFF provides here some curated collections, based on sub-collections in the reference database, related to various themes, specific publications, or special issues.
