When movement is at its best it feels effortless, free, full of life and with a sense of flow.
There are approx. 350 joints in the body; that’s potential for a lot of movement.
The unique combinations and patterns in Feldenkrais lessons help to unlock that movement.
You are asked to tune into the subtlest of sensations in your moving body, small muscular shifts, changing in breath, feeling weight shifts, noticing differences, and always looking for ease and fluidity in your movement. Pausing in the lessons allow the nervous system to integrate the learning that is taking place.
From this way of working gentle recalibration occurs, allowing a profound re organisation of your system so that you can move and live more fully.
Awareness through movement
In a group lesson you are led through a series of movements where you are encouraged to slow down and sense the quality of your movement. This allows you to let go of unwanted muscular tensions and habitual ways of doing things to find new and healthier ways of moving. At the end of a class you can expect to feel both relaxed and invigorated!
Classes are suitable for all ages and all levels of fitness.
One to one lessons take place fully clothed, most often lying on a table. We address your own particular movement patterns. Sessions are tailor made to suit your needs. Gentle, yet specific manipulations help you to release limitations, guiding you to a sense of better self use. You will invariably feel lighter and easier in yourself with a heightened sense of well -being.
