From my very first Feldenkrais workshop for the eyes it was clear that they do benefit from regular attention and specifically designed Awareness Through Movement “Self-Maintenance for Your Eyes”
Feldenkrais is a process of self-development that uses focussed, intelligent, primal movement sequences to reawaken those parts of our selves that have become disconnected, armoured, and blocked from our self-awareness.
These Awareness Through Movement sequences are designed to improve our ability to integrate all the separate parts of our selves into a fully active, fully engaged, vibrant and ever-evolving living being.
In my mission to discover the full potential of sound-making, singing, and the human voice, it has become more and more clear over the years that the ability to maximise our hearing by improving the way we listen is a vital element of both the tonal qualities available to us when we vocalise, and the ease with which we produce our voice in speech and song.
Harmonising Diaphragms & Sphincters When we think about the way we move as an indicator of the state of our health, we might picture a “Rhythms Of Life”
When you attend an Awareness Through Movement class you lie on the floor and follow instructions for very precise actions from your teacher, but she “What is a “fully conscious voice”?”
By way of an example, have a look at this piece How To Sit Ergonomically At Work. It is a good article, it is mostly “Sitting Well – Or “Everything You Know About Posture Is Wrong!””
I came across this quotation a few years ago now, but it is still very timely: “There is one thing that, when cultivated and regularly “BodyMindfulness – A peaceful, easy feeling…”
“In poor posture the muscles are doing a part of the job of the bones.” Moshe Feldenkrais: Awareness Through Movement, 1980 Correct “Posture” versus Dynamic “Dynamic Stability & Hypermobility Syndrome”
“Every great and deep difficulty bears in itself its own solution. It forces us to change our thinking in order to find it.” Niels Bohr (Physicist)* “Sciatica, Fibromyalgia, and the Purpose of Pain”
Grace is one of the benefits that I offer to entice potential students to come and try out my classes, but I suspect for many “Grace – Awareness Through Movement In Action”
