Felden-what? This is often the first refrain but once you take a class, you will discover the power of this method that was created by Moshe Feldenkrais and you’ll be sharing your experience of it with others.
This method is powerful because of the gentle and mindful movements that you will use to explore the habits that you have built up over a lifetime. Repetitive strain injuries, arthritis, neck/shoulder/back pain, chronic pain are just some of the conditions that may lead you to arrive at the door of a Feldenkrais class.
However, once you are in the room, and then when you leave it, you will feel and be different. The heart rate slows down, breathing slows down, and all this happens as you watch yourself doing what seem like “little nothing movements”. These little movements though, when you are given the space and time to watch them, often reveal your current habits. Then, in this quiet space you have the opportunity to discover another way of doing something. Breaking free from habit is a profoundly freeing thing for a person and can create powerful momentum for change and capacity within each person. Let this quiet class work its magic on you. It is suitable for all ages.
