Russell Delman, the founder of The Embodied Life School, began his study of body-mind perspectives and human potential in 1969 and has since dedicated his life to the study of human transformation.
A Zen practitioner for more than 40 years, Russell has studied somatic psychology and is indebted in his work to his training and deep personal relationship with Moshe Feldenkrais. He became one of the first people authorized to lead Feldenkrais Professional training programs, helping to train more than 2,500 Feldenkrais teachers over the years.
With his longtime wife Linda, also a Feldenkrais trainer, he created the Feldenkrais-India Project, bringing the Feldenkrais method to India for the first time. In India, Russell and Linda worked at Mother Teresa’s mission in Calcutta and were blessed and influenced by numerous private meetings with her. Russell maintains a private practice in Northern California and teaches programs throughout the world.
