Running with the Whole Body was written by Jack Heggie, a Feldenkrais® Practitioner, who studied with Dr. Moche Feldenkrais in Israel and in the United States. Until his death in 2002, he maintained a private practice and taught many skiing and running workshops. He has helped numerous runners become faster and overcome injuries through his Feldenkrais® running classes. You can access these same benefits through his book.
