New to Feldenkrais? Move yourself gently, slowly. Stay in your comfortable range of movement.

This is a learning method, rather than exercise, so there’s no gain in straining, or pushing yourself through pain.

  • If it hurts, stop.
  • Move slower, smaller, less frequently.
  • If it still hurts, do the movements in your imagination.
  • We’re aiming to learn to distinguish between different ways of moving.

January: Common areas of discomfort: Shoulders, neck & back

14th January

Freeing the Neck

This lesson is in lying on your stomach. You can also do it in sitting with your head on the table in front of you.

with Emma

As you are moving your neck, you’ll need to be careful and gentle with yourself. Make the movements very small, and don’t force. The less force you use, the more you’ll improve.

Stop and rest as often as you need to.
