Learning

Why do Feldenkrais?

Age gracefully I’m so inspired by my Feldenkrais teachers in their 80s. They continue to improve their movement habits even as they age – just as others their age seem to keep declining…

Feel More. Update your habits. Learn to slow down. Improve your brain’s map of your body. Discover the gifts inside pain. Grow your attentional flexibility. Be mindful and spontaneous. Become yourself…

The importance of doing ATM in a consistent way at home

Learn to respect your physical sensations as intelligent signals. By doing Awareness Through Movement, you will begin to learn to identify the sensations that precede your pain or discomfort. Then, you will be able to take the radical, proactive step of stopping whatever you are doing, and with a few minutes of ATM, interrupt the cycle of habitual stress and pain. This is what learning to take care of yourself means.

What Supports Your to Move Your Vision?

It was quite a journey this last month. I created something bigger than I expected: Move Your Vision 2018 was a grand experiment that involved over 900 human beings!

What supports you to move your vision, to evolve, grow and mature? What helps you connect the dots between your physical self & your thoughts/ feelings/ ideas/ creative impulses? We will continue to explore these questions this year in Movement & Creativity Library.

Shifts in my practice

I am seeing that Organic Intelligence is the place I want to begin working with new clients. Then the Feldenkrais Functional Integration comes naturally when the time is right. This has been particularly effective for people who feel stuck, blocked creatively or who are wanting to be more in their bodies but find they spend a lot of time in their heads.

The work is also helpful for moving beyond stress/ anxiety/ trauma---and the beautiful thing is, the focus is not on the trauma, or the what's-wrong-attention.
