Improve the quality of your movement to improve the quality of your life!
The Feldenkrais Method™ of somatic education is a life-changing practice of learning through movement. By unwinding our habitual patterns of moving, thinking, and feeling, we discover novel ways of being with ourselves and the world.
In Feldenkrais classes, you will be guided through slow, gentle movements on the floor that unwind muscular tension and calm the nervous system. The method is inspired by the way babies learn to move and interact with their environments – looking, rolling, reaching, using support from the floor. No prior experience necessary!
As you rediscover your innate capacity for effortless, efficient, and graceful movement, you may also find your way out of significant levels of pain or discomfort. Many students find themselves freed of years of pain that they thought they would live with forever.
Through exploring movement and sensing the environment, we discover novel ways to get whatever it is we most want out of life. For a baby that may be reaching for a toy and bringing it to the mouth, but for an adult, that may be learning to play a sport better, becoming a better actor or dancer, living a pain-free life, increasing productivity at work, or finding harmony at home. Many students of the Feldenkrais Method™ find their physical and non-physical problems spontaneously disappearing as they increase their self-awareness.
“The lessons are designed to improve ability, that is, to expand the boundaries of the possible: to turn the impossible into the possible, the difficult into the easy, and the easy into the pleasant.” – Moshe Feldenkrais
