Each week, we do a different lesson in movement, thinking or simply breathing, in a chair, on the floor or standing. If you have limitations, don’t be afraid. Come, try from the comfort of a chair. Be open to learn at any age. If you can imagine yourself moving, this will begin the process of physically learning how! Come with a positive attitude to enjoy yourself and have fun while learning.
These exercises are performed in a manner that keeps you free from pain and strain. Move in a way that elicits pleasure and curiosity, which will awaken your brain to learning.
The Feldenkrais perspective attends to the more systemic patterns of muscular organization and body use which produce the stress leading to and maintaining injury (stress –strain-tear/rupture pain).
The Feldenkrais practitioner does not attempt to treat the localised injury. Instead, she helps through teaching the student to become aware of how they use their body and to learn easier and more efficient ways of functioning.
Our self-image is a body image, which not only determines what we think of ourselves but also what we do and how we do it.
