What it is like to work with me?
Feldenkrais is something to be experienced rather than talked about, so I invite you to try out a selection of my online lessons below.
To try them out, you’ll need a space on the floor, a mat or blanket to lie on, and a rolled up towel in case you need support for your head. They’ll take between 20 minutes to an hour, depending on the lesson.
You’ll need to take responsibility for your comfort and how you move yourself, if you choose to do this lesson.
In a live lesson I can guide your movements in response to what I see.
A few movement guidelines:
- Stay within your own comfortable limits.
- If it hurts, stop.
- You can make the movements slower, smaller, less frequent, or do them mentally.
- All the lessons are about improving your awareness, how much you move is not important.
- Go slow, and easy.
- Pause whenever you need to, you’re not at the gym, rather focussing your brain on sensing and feeling yourself in motion. If you need a longer rest, hit the pause button.
- Move in a way where you like the way it feels.
Grounding, Finding your Centre
A lesson on freeing the pelvis, and the Martial Arts influence on Feldenkrais and his method. Taught as part of the Move Better Feel Better Feldenkrais Summit in 2020. (The lesson starts at 07.26)
The Emotional Body: Using Feldenkrais to self regulate.
A practical presentation/lesson online for the ISM (August 2020) on using self awareness and learning through movement to help us feel more connected to ourselves, and find safety and security in our own skin.
Working with the Eyes
A short lesson on co-ordinating eye movement with movements of the neck and head. The eyes are such an important element of how we orient ourselves: when we improve this, much else improves too.
Freeing the Fingers
A short lesson on extension and flexion of the fingers, and how using them more ergonomically can help us use the whole of our arms and shoulders with more fluidity and freedom.
