The groups lesson of Feldenkrais method is called
“Awareness Through Movement”
You are moving all day, even while sleeping. All the movements you make – big and small – are what you learned. But you do not notice whether or not these movements are the best way for you, since often we are very much habituated. And if you are using your body inefficient way, that is how you get chronic problems. In daily life, your attention is on what you should/want to do, not on HOW you move. Feldenkrais does look at the HOW.
Awareness Through Movement lessons are practical lessons to attain more possibility in movement. As the name of lessons, Awareness is an important aspect in the lessons, you could call it ‘Mindfulness in Movement’.
Feldenkrais is a learning method
In the lessons, you will be guided to move very gently and mindfully on your mat. You will be sensing small subtle movement through your nervous system. As you become more aware of your own movement and body, you will find possibilities physically and also mentally. It is the most beautiful and sustainable way of learning, like the way infants learn. It gives you harmony of body and mind.
Please come with clothes that are easy to move and keep you warm. Depending on the site, yoga mat is prepared. If you like your own mat or towel, feel free to bring your own.

In this period of uncertainty, what makes you feel grounded? I’ve heard from students that many people feel unstable and anxious in these last few weeks. I also experienced this. Most of our daily routines had to be modified because of the COVID-19 measures. Okay, we can change it for now and do something else, but can you find yourself in this new pattern? And are you ready to go back to the usual pattern someday soon? What makes you feel that you are there and grounded?
In these special times, we get into situations that are unfamiliar to you. How can you feel yourself and be yourself in any situation? What we can do is to practice grounding. Grounding your physical body grounds your mind.
With Feldenkrais lessons, you’ll explore your skeleton, breath and vision, which is key to be yourself and to be grounded.
