Free Recordings

Group and individual lessons

Those are live recordings and in their imperfections, they follow the dynamics of the group. Their primary function is to offer some frame for additional explorations to the students attending those classes.  If you are new to the Feldenkrais method there are a few IMPORTANT NOTES for you before you try those, all by yourself.
Please refer to the Introductory recording or even better come to a live class.

  1. Finding length and support

    Fantastic opportunity to find for yourself how dynamically by including some rotation and learning how to respond to it you can lengthen in different directions.

    Would be of interest to all who are willing to improve the integration of the core, the mobility of the hip and the flexibility of the chest. All together will lead to a better understanding of how you can shift your weight to support those movements.

2. Side bending while lying on the side. Taking support to oppose gravity.

Finding flexibility and support through one side. Learning to oppose gravity in an efficient way. Regaining flexibility in the ribcage, those skills are essential for all human function. All upright activities depend on our ability to efficiently and intelligently take a shape and organize our skeletal structure in such a way that we can oppose the gravitational pull without strain. The flexibility of the ribcage is essential for good balance and your ability to turn.

3. Connecting the two arms in action part 1.

Improve your ability to sense the connection between the two arms and how the shoulder girdle can move in flexion and extension. What the rest of you have to do with this movement. No figuring out or understanding of “good” or “efficient” or “proper” function/action can take place without sufficient ability to sense yourself in action. Those sense-ability classes are your best investment.

4.Connecting the two arms in action part 2

5. Lifting long leg and arm on diagonal.

This lesson might remind you of some of the exercises you came across, intending to build “strong core”. Instead of being concerned with lots of effort, measured as strength, we were looking for the way to organize the gentle and directional transition of force between one shoulder and the opposite hip. That allowed us to do the lifting with lots of ease and it was pleasure and fun.
