This workshop is based on The Feldenkrais Method. The Feldenkrais Method --developed by Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais, distinguished scientist, physicist, engineer, and Judo master-- is a remarkable approach to human movement, learning and change. Feldenkrais is recognized for the strategies it employs to improve posture, flexibility, coordination, athletic and artistic ability and to help those with restricted movement, chronic pain and tension, as well as neurological, developmental and psychological problems. It explores the biological and cultural aspects of movement, posture and learning, and how our habits can constrain us to a small portion of our potential. Through our personal history, upbringing, culture, injuries, illness, etc., we each adopt patterns of physical and psychological behavior. These patterns are deeply embedded in our nervous system, and often become outmoded or dysfunctional, creating unnecessary physical, and psychological limitations. The Feldenkrais Method uses a process of organic learning, movement, and sensing to free you from habitual patterns and allow for new patterns of thinking, moving and feeling to emerge. www.feldenkrais.com
