3 amazing ways Feldenkrais somatic classes can change your life!

Feldenkrais somatic group lessons are called Awareness Through Movement. These are verbally led lessons which follow a sequence of movements done either in standing, sitting, lying on the belly or back or a combination. These precisely structured movement explorations involve thinking, sensing, moving and feeling what you are doing in space. By increasing your awareness, you learn to abandon habitual patterns of movement and develop new alternatives. This results in improved flexibility and coordination, and less pain, more comfort.

How can this Feldenkrais somatic lessons change your life? It inspires creativity and curiosity, you gain such an incredible independence, and it feels so good for the body.

It inspires curiosity and creativity

These Feldenkrais classes aren’t the least bit boring! They are built uniquely for each person’s individual body/mind. Placing the importance on how you feel rather than what you’re supposed to feel (what somatic therapy is all about) allows you to open yourself up to curiosity and creativity. Instead of trying to achieve a standard, you get to notice what you actually do and make a decision about what you want to do. If you allow yourself that process, you find that you develop more curiosity about yourself and the world and you find yourself more creative about what you can do!

After 10 or so dedicated lessons on the judo roll, what seemed impossible at first became something very easy and fun! I flipped over for the first time in my life! How cool is that!

You gain such an incredible independence

These Feldenkrais somatic Awareness Through Movement classes are built to teach you – not to fix you. The quote “ you give a man a fish, he eats for a day, you teach a man to fish, he eats for life,” is very applicable here! These lessons teach you how to feel what you are doing, so the next time you get hurt, you know how to get better. How incredibly independent is that! And the more classes you do, the more you know how to do it by yourself!

It feels so good for the body.

The best part about doing  Feldenkrais somatic Awareness Through Movement classes is how you feel afterwards! Because these lessons are built upon foundational human movements, once you’ve understood the movement (no matter how small!) you feel the release of muscles that were working harder than they needed to, your whole body participates in moving yourself, and bigger muscles take on more work than small muscles; like the muscles of the pelvis! The end of lessons allow you to take account of all the changes you feel. The incredible part is that your brain records this for the future! And voila, you start to move with so much ease and feel so good doing it.

Of course, like many things, you need to try to believe it and to understand! So give it a shot and sign up to one of my online Awareness Through Movement classes!
