In brief: Feldenkrais

The feldenkrais method is based on the principles of physics and biomechanics, an empirical understanding of human physiology and the connection between mind and body.
Practitioners use gentle movement and directed attention with the aim of increasing ease and range of motion, improving flexibility and coordination and ultimately rediscovering an innate capacity for graceful, efficient movement.

In brief: Improves balance

There are two branches, "awareness through movement" and "functional integration".
Research has indicated that feldenkrais exercises are an effective way to improve balance and mobility and reduce the risk of falling among community-dwelling older adults (age >65). Long term studies are needed to evaluate further. Studies have also shown can be helpful in patients with eating disorder.
