The Feldenkrais method is a complex, multi-layered somatic educational system. On the surface it appears simply to offer us a way to improve the quality, range and comfort with which we move. Each class presents us with a moving puzzle. The challenge is to refine our ability to sense ourselves while we are moving. But Feldenkrais’ aim for his method went far beyond movement. The clue is in the name, Awareness Through Movement. Since we are moving every moment of our lives, then improving how we move has the potential to improve all that we do. To be able to respond creatively to challenges rather than reactively, conditioned by our habits. At its core is a radical way of thinking about learning. We learn how to learn.
“Fifteen years ago, I chose to make teaching my artist practice and the process of creating classes my field of artistic research. An inquiry of what it is to be a thinking, feeling, moving subject through facilitating a dialogue with ourselves and our environment in which we are empowered to be our own experts.”
