These lessons activate your nervous system’s ability for self-healing, re-organization of muscular patterns, and enhanced coordination and balance. All pain and tension that is not caused by injury or disease is a reaction from the body to over-use, emotional and mental habits, compensation patterns after injury, and unawareness of our body’s way.
Isn’t that good news? It means that we can step out of pain by changing how we sense, feel, think and do. Offering the one and most powerful tool for this change makes the Feldenkrais method outstanding. It directly addresses the control center of all movement in your life: your brain. How? By making “How” the most important question and prioritizing self-awareness over exercise.
Asking the right questions
These lessons help you to reconnect with your whole body-family through honest, aware self-observation. You will discover how you can move to attune to sensations of pleasure, and comfort. You will also discover how to deeply listen to and interpret the messages of your body members. So you can take the actions that your body needs to move with joy and ease and gain back control over your own life.
The movements are gentle, simple, and playful so everyone no matter their age and abilities can participate. The movement variations are designed to move out of tension and pain while at the same time learning about the unconscious, neuro-physical and emotional patterns that cause pain and discomfort.
The movement phrases offered in these 60-minute lessons are done in a variety of positions and variations that address daily life challenges like bending, walking, turning, reaching, and sitting with ease and simplicity. You can participate from the convenience of your own living room. All you need is your mat and maybe so every now and then a chair, a good wifi connection, and a device.
