Philosophy and Comments        

It is time for personal change that begins with each one of us individually. Our transformations will change the world. Our healing will reflect back to us. It begins with learning, connecting, hearing each other and considering the effects of our choices. It is learning how to say no without malice and injustice. It is learning to yes without coercion.

Movement may well create our reality. If we are not moving with ease our living experience and relationships reflect dis-ease. Our actions will reflect our effort and ability to cope from inside ourselves.

With so many forms of movement; therapy, dance, yoga, martial arts and combinations it was hard to choose one. The one I did choose to study is the one I found to reconnect to the pleasure of my own senses. Imagine finding pleasure in your body simply breathing, sitting, standing, rolling over by touch, feeling, seeing and hearing. I found it and still find it enriching. This method doesn’t replace any other form of movement, it simply lets me do it with deeper consciousness and abilities. Movement is no longer prescribed or unconscious, rather it is increasingly spontaneous. I can guarantee my living experience reflects greater pleasure, spontaneity, and curiously I am more courageous! This method is Feldenkrais.

If you explored it, it would allow you to observe how you move, to notice unnecessary tension, and to improve your overall coördination.

Well known attributes of this method are:

■Learning new ways to move can be an essential addition to the treatment of neurological, orthopedic, chronic pain, and stress-related conditions.

■Easier movement means greater comfort performing everyday activities at work or home, and greater skill in athletic and artistic pursuits.

■Expand awareness of how you think, sense, feel, and move, the possibilities for personal improvement and human development are limitless.
