Awareness Through Movement group lessons
In a group Feldenkrais lesson, the group is steered through various processes that focus and increase the participants’ awareness through movement. Each lesson emphasizes various aspects of the human movement and functioning. Lessons are conducted in small groups, allowing each student to receive ample attention and individual instructions, further customizing each lesson to their unique needs.
Either while lying on a mattress, seated on a chair or in a variety of other positions, participants learn, through unique movement sequences, how to listen to themselves, raise consciousness to their movements and to the level of unnecessary efforts they invest in each action. Throughout the lessons, the participants’ level of sensitivity to the quality of their movements rises. Participants learn how to implement the new sensations and moving habits in their everyday lives. The futile efforts students invest in various actions will be revealed as those that lead to pains and chronic limitations. Identifying them, therefore, will open a possibility for change and to life without these restraints. A newly acquired freedom of movement and quality of life will motivate further changes and improvements.
