So, what exactly happens in a Feldenkrais session?
So, what happens in a Feldenkrais session?
People ask this frequently, so I thought I’d give some idea in the next couple of blogs.Two blogs because there are two different ways of experiencing the Feldenkrais Method®, either hands on, one to one, known as Functional Integration or else in a group class, known as Awareness Through Movement.The principles are exactly the same either way.
Floristry the Feldenkrais way
Our surroundings are important to our overall sense of wellbeing, so I’ve carefully chosen three different locations in Bath from which the group Feldenkrais sessions run each week. I find that different people prefer the different positive aspects of each one. A Georgian villa, a Victorian former monastery and a modern studio in the countryside.
Hiking by Moonlight
I love the glow that fresh flowers provide to a room, however I never thought that I was very adept at arranging them myself. This week the Bath Businesswomen’s Association held their monthly meeting at Bath College, in the floristry department. I went along to find out whether it is possible to learn new Floristry skills using Feldenkrais principles?
I used to be an Accountant....until I discovered Feldenkrais
Last Friday evening, we made a spontaneous decision to walk from home, up through steep woods and fields to a pub that serves excellent food, then walk the “long way” home over the racecourse and down the Cotswold way. It was twilight as we ascended and completely dark after we had eaten. The footpaths around our house are really familiar to us by daylight. Taking the same paths by night created a challenge.
Future proofing (insurance)
I never intended to become a Feldenkrais teacher. For several years in the early noughties, a close family member with balance and co-ordination issues had benefitted from weekly one-to-one sessions with the then local Feldenkrais practitioner in Bath. The sessions made a real noticeable difference to these neurologically based issues
Blue-lighting down from the Italian Alps to Aosta hospital with a family member last week; a momentary slip on skis with potentially serious consequences. We had self-rescued from the slopes in -15c temperatures, but headed straight to the local trauma centre as the faller was obviously unwell.
Walking on the Cotswold Way in late Autumn sunshine; this National Trail is literally on my doorstep, so it’s a regular walk up onto Kelston Roundhill.
