Movement is basic to all life. Plants turn toward the sun for nourishment. We reach and go toward what we need. The quality of our movement affects the quality of our experience. Stress, injury, and habit can lead to movement patterns that create a negative cycle of limitations. The goal of The Feldenkrais Method® of Somatic Education is to provide renewed choices in how we move through our daily life.
Every move one makes involves the whole person - not just a finger, a foot, or a knee. True change begins when we become aware of how each part habitually cooperates with, or resists what we intend to do. As we begin to sense these relationships, our options increase. Our nervous system has the innate intelligence to recognize and assimilate the patterns that are most beneficial - the ways that use our energy efficiently, with less wasted effort and less harmful stress. Meeting our potential is all about how we organize ourselves… how we use the resources we were given.
