After limiting my private Feldenkrais practice for a few years, I am starting to teach again in York. So if you’ve got stiff shoulders, a sore back, or you just want to increase your mobility, balance and ease of movement, please get in touch.
I’ll be running these lessons for charity. In response to the growing cost of living and the fact that around 1 in 4 of the UK’s children live in poverty, donations will go to York Foodbank.
You can find out more information about the Feldenkrais Method here.
It’s been interesting recording and sharing these lessons while on lockdown, but I think 25 days in a row is a good place to pause for the time being.
I thought I’d finish the series of lessons with the most famous awareness through movement lesson of all: The Pelvic Clock. This is a lesson that I’m sure many of you have done before, but I hope there’s something new to find for everyone.
A lesson focused on interception. This lesson invites you to become aware of your tidal volume (the volume of air you breathe in and out during a normal breath). A lesson for connecting with yourself on a deep level. Good for decreasing anxiety and stress.
A nice simple lesson for Day 22. An exploration of the first movements we practised as infants. Pressing ourselves against the floor as we lay on our backs. A good one for balancing the tonus of the muscles. And a nice lesson to do before bed.
20 days, 20 Awareness Through Movement lessons. I hope you are enjoying them. This lesson explores and develops the stability of the shoulder joints. It’s pretty dynamic. It should be a good one for anyone working on their handstands while on lockdown.
A lesson that explores more dynamic and global applications of the movement of the shoulders, ribs and hips explored in Lessons 17 and 18. A lovely, roly-poly Awareness Through Movement lesson to play with.
A follow up to yesterday’s lesson, exploring lying on your side comfortably. This one looks at rolling from the side to the back. It’s a good one for softening the chest and ribcage, and increasing the mobility of the hips and shoulders. (All the good stuff.)
