Health is the ability to realize our avowed and unavowed dreams.
– Moshe Feldenkrais
Whether you are solo kayaking on a pristine lake, bowing onto the mat to spar, perfecting your Garudasana or finding your ideal meditation posture, the Feldenkrais Method can support and improve your practice. Moshe Feldenkrais was an athlete, an engineer, and a martial artist who studied many of the inner arts. Mindful movement can take many forms: from hiking to Tai chi to Pilates. The huge variety of Awareness Through Movement lessons (there are over 1000!) offer new ways of approaching your relationship to your embodiment practice. Many certified teachers have explored specific strategies for deepening and improving your movement and your attention through individual sessions and through courses and recorded programs. You can start your inner journey here with these articles and videos.
We all have personal reasons that bring us to a Feldenkrais session. For me, I was just trying out a random class at my tennis club. From there, it became an opportunity to relieve pain and restore mobility in my neck and back. Over time, it transitioned into something more. One day I noticed I was more relaxed and I wasn’t rushing as much; I felt better, lighter, taller. I am continually astounded that something so simple and enjoyable can have such an enormous impact on the way I feel.
