What is Feldenkrais?
Feldenkrais taught that increasing a person's kinesthetic and proprioceptive self-awareness of functional movement could lead to increased function, reduced pain, and greater ease and pleasure of movement. The Method is experiential, providing tools for self-observation through movement inquiry.
The Feldenkrais Method is used to improve movement patterns rather than to treat specific injuries or illnesses. However, because habitual and repetitive movement patterns can contribute towards and in some cases cause injury, pain, and physical dysfunction, the method is often regarded as falling within the field of integrative medicine or complementary medicine.
Cultivating Effortlessness: Finding Your Natural Posture on Horseback
A Series of Feldenkrais® and Bones for Life® Workshops with Meriah Kruse, GCFP
Both the Feldenkrais Method, and it's offspring Bones for Life, create just these conditions: effortlessness, and an approach to dynamic, natural posture that comes from increased subtle awareness of self.
