Feldenkrais is a functional movement re-education that supports you in other areas of your life: it is a gentle, mindful approach to injury prevention and rehabilitation which can also improve your quality of life through stress, anxiety and chronic pain reduction. Whether you want to improve your posture, deepen your yoga practice, sleep better, improve in playing an instrument or sport, or sit at work more comfortably, Feldenkrais can help your nervous system to stop doing those things which you currently do, without realising, and which hold you back, make work harder or cause you pain or discomfort.
Lessons consist of gentle movements carried out in sitting, standing or, most commonly, lying. The challenge is not to push yourself, not to work in pain, not to try harder, but just to observe yourself and focus your awareness. The teacher explains what to do physically and guides your awareness throughout.
"Movement is life. Life is a process. Improve the quality of the process and you improve the quality of life itself." Moshe Feldenkrais
