The Feldenkrais Method® works slowly and systematically to build new patterns of movement. By doing very small and easy but complex movement puzzles, we learn to rewire our nervous systems to align mind with body for optimal coordination. The Pilates Method is an exercise system founded on core strength, and promotes mindful movement that requires precision. In this course, we work on developing functional strength. While strength instruction tends to be thought of as muscle-centric, there are many parts to strong action. We focus on being awareness-centric and explore strategies for getting stronger, drawing on a synthesis of physical therapy, the Feldenkrais Method and Pilates, so that you can map out a program that meets your needs to find your optimal strength.
