The Wolf Lecture

2014 Wolf Lecture
Samantha Basford Damoulakis and Russel Hall visited the University of Mount Union on Tuesday, February 25 to speak about the Feldenkrais Method of injury prevention. The Feldenkrais Method was developed by Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais to improve range of motion, flexibility and coordination.
