Feldenkrais

 

The Feldenkrais Method®  offers a unique and practical way to realise our potential more fully. It is an educational method focusing on learning and movement named after its originator, Moshe Feldenkrais (1904-1984), an engineer and physicist as well as a Judo teacher.

Feldenkrais is for:

  • happiness and wellbeing
  • chronic health conditions including chronic pain
  • injury prevention and rehabilitation
  • maximising sports and performance in general

As a Feldenkrais Student Teacher in the final year of the four year  training I am authorised to teach Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement (ATM) classes.

In an ATM class the teacher talks you through a sequence of movements that works like a physical riddle: how do your habits of movement help you, but at the same time stand in the way of doing better?

By engaging your curiosity, gently and at your own rate, you learn to explore the world of your internal sensation. You learn to use this awareness to release chronic patterns of tension and create new movement possibilities. You may find similar development in the flexibility of your thinking and feeling.

I teach a weekly Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement class. In addition I lead regular Feldenkrais and Yoga workshops as both myself and my students find the two approaches complement each other and make for engaging  lessons that inform life and living.
