Teaching the Feldenkrais® method of movement intelligence in York
“Make the impossible possible, the possible easy and the easy elegant.”
I practice and teach the Feldenkrais® method - a holistic, mind-brain-body approach to moving, learning and changing with maximum ease and minimum effort.
There are two ways to learn Feldenkrais®.
In group mat classes, called Awareness Through Movement® the teacher guides you verbally to tune into your body and be with yourself in gentle movement sequences while lying down, sitting or standing. You explore yourself with movement as the medium - and awareness as your tool of exploration. In these classes, we learn to move as infants do, with curiosity, comfort and by relying on our senses. We discover new sensations and experience new movement patterns. New neural pathways are formed, giving us new options for moving and living. The lessons are suitable for everyone.
Individual Feldenkrais® lessons, called Functional Integration®, are tailored to each student; the teacher joins with your easy movements through touch and guides you to explore new movement possibilities.
Books and articles celebrate the benefits of the method.
