Movement, awareness, life...
Moshe Feldenkrais said, 'Movement is life.' Our movement through life depends on the coordination of thinking, feeling and sensing. Awareness of our responses and our possibilities allow us to respond appropriately to changes in our inner and outer environment. The Feldenkrais Method develops our ability to become aware of our movement and ourselves. Through this awareness, we can learn not only how to better coordinate your movement, but how to change habits of behavior and self-image.
Feldenkrais is an easy-to-do, practical approach to expanding your possibilities. The Method is named after its creator, Moshe Feldenkrais, DSc, an engineer and scientist who applied his experience of the martial art of Judo with his extensive of study of human movement to create this unique approach.
Moshe Feldenkrais wrote, “Movement is life”. “Improve the quality of movement and you improve the quality of life itself”.
Movement is fundamental to our experience of ourselves and our lives. Feldenkrais lessons can help improve the quality of your movement: helping you move with greater ease and less effort, more smoothness… They can provide greater clarity of how the parts of your body relate to the whole, so that you move in ways that are more harmonious, efficient, and effective. You can find less strain – and less pain, in all your actions.
In addition, being able to move one’s attention – to narrow or widen one’s focus, to direct it, and to attend to what is important to you is another vital skill that is common to Feldenkrais Method, Yoga and meditation, and other practices we offer at the Center.
