About the Feldenkrais Lesson

Benefits of the Lesson: 
  • Improve your range of motion in turning
  • Expand your peripheral vision
  • Improve your posture
  • Free your neck and shoulders of tension and pain

The lesson is a simplified version of "The Movement of the Eyes Organizes the Movement of the Body" that Dr. Feldenkrais presents in his book, Awareness Through Movement. He presented variations of the lesson in many other publications, workshops, trainings, and classes. 

I believe this speaks to the importance of this lesson for Dr. Feldenkrais. And that is why I have chosen it for this course. It contains many vivid examples of these key Feldenkrais concepts in action.

You do the lesson seated in a chair. A dining chair is ideal. Something with a firm seat and supportive back is best. A bench or stool will also do.
