How does a Feldenkrais class work?

Feldenkrais is based on the fact that improving quality of action is possible for everyone, whatever their current movement ability or physical condition.

Gentle Awareness through Movement lessons provide an opportunity to develop greater awareness about how you move and how this relates to your body’s structure and functional design. The aim is to explore new ways of co-ordinating yourself that eliminate strain and improve ease and support. A great variety of lessons are available for all levels of ability and experience.

Each class takes a simple, everyday action as a theme (e.g bending, turning, reaching) and guides you to develop a more complete and refined sense of how you can co-ordinate yourself in these movements. Working at your own pace, level of ability and comfort, you learn to recognise unconscious (habitual), counter-productive patterns of muscular activity, and to develop more effective alternatives.

Attention is directed to reducing effort, listening to feedback from your body, and seeking out new connections and relationships that provide maximum ease and support. This wider practice of ‘mindfulness in action’ provides simple skills that can be applied in daily life to facilitate easier, softer interactions with the world around us.
