In Feldenkrais® Awareness Through Movement® lessons you learn how to move with minimum effort and maximum ease, through improved coordination and awareness of how your body works. Lying on the floor you are directed through a series of gentle, non-invasive movements that grow increasingly complex. This puzzle-like situation prompts your nervous system to activate a different muscle pattern than you usually use. As a result, at the end of a lesson, habitual muscle tension releases. You sense the stability of a balanced skeleton. Your breathing is freer, walking lighter, and eyes clearer. Your kinesthetic perception enhanced, you can move in ways that you thought were restricted.
If you continue to return to the Feldenkrais Method as a means to easier movement and less pain, Awareness Through Movement lessons are vitally important to your learning process. When you have the opportunity to pay attention to your own movement within the structure of these lessons, you can begin to make choices in your every day life that will lead to fuller participation in the things you love.
