About David Zemach Bersin

David Zemach-Bersin is one of Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais' original American students and studied closely with Dr. Feldenkrais from 1973-1984 in the U.S., Europe, and at the Feldenkrais Institute in Israel. He has been involved with the practice and development of the Feldenkrais Method for more than 30 years, and is one of the world’s foremost Feldenkrais Teachers and Trainers.

With Elizabeth Beringer, David founded Feldenkrais Resources in 1983. Feldenkrais Resources is the primary publisher of Dr. Feldenkrais’ English language books and audio programs, as well as programs from the world’s leading Feldenkrais Teachers and Trainers. In 2005, David co-founded the Feldenkrais Institute of New York, a large center devoted to the work of Dr. Feldenkrais. In 2007, he also co-founded the Feldenkrais Research Foundation, a non-profit devoted to initiating and supporting scientific research on the Feldenkrais Method. The first projects of Feldenkrais Research Foundation will be to look at the efficacy of the Feldenkrais Method with Multiple Sclerosis, scoliosis, and recovery of mobility from mastectomies.
