Feldenkrais Functional Integration® Sessions
These hands on,one-to-one sessions are designed to work directly with the individual’s desired goals.
Individual Feldenkrais® sessions are referred to as Functional Integration® sessions. In Functional Integration®, as the student lies on a low table, fully clothed, the teacher´s hands gently guide the client into a new way of moving and using her or his body. The often subtle movements feed information directly into the nervous system. Each lesson in this format is private and adapted to the student´s specific needs.
They are usually done with the student lying on a table, fully clothed and the practitioner using uses gentle movement and directed attention to help people learn new and more effective ways of living the life they want. These lessons are highly effective with any problem related to the nervous system : such as strokes, head injury, post surgery, MS or CP,
By increasing sensitivity, the Feldenkrais Method assists you to live your life more fully, efficiently, and comfortably. Releasing habits of unnecessary tension allows a new way of moving. Often this eliminates or decreases pain. If you have a specific problem or you want to improve performance in a sport or art form, you can increase your ease and range of motion, improve your flexibility and coordination, and rediscover your innate capacity for graceful, efficient movement
Awareness Through Movement®
Make the impossible possible, the possible easy, and the easy elegant. The Feldenkrais Method® is an innovate approach to movement education that teaches you to move with greater ease and efficiency.
In this class the teacher guides students through a sequence of movements, encouraging them to move with gentle attention within a comfortable range. You might walk, stand, or sit in a chair, although usually, you will lie on the floor in a variety of comfortable positions: either on your back, front, or side. During this class You may become aware of unexpected and interesting connections within and between the movements. As you attend to the improving quality of movement, unnecessary muscular tensions throughout the body can reorganize and release. Students are often amazed at the quick and clear changes that occur through the neuromuscular re-patterning that happens in an Awareness Through Movement lesson.
It is not about working harder – it is about getting smarter.
Awareness Through Movement classes use slow, mindful movements to achieve powerful effects in terms of strength, flexibility, and holistic integration of body and mind. Unique to the Feldenkrais Method® of somatic education is that these lessons tie directly into functional movements of daily life, such as walking efficiently, safely lifting objects, and improving one’s posture in sitting or standing.
