Does effortless gardening sound like a contradiction in terms? It isn’t. Many gardeners suffer needlessly because they use their bodies improperly. The Effortless Gardening program teaches you practical body movement techniques that make gardening nearly effortless.

You will learn the Pain Equation — and how to reverse it. You’ll improve your flexibility and body awareness by doing the audio recorded Feldenkrais movement lessons. The Effortless Gardening program even coaches you while you’re gardening!

Don’t let pain prevent you from pursuing your passion. It’s possible to feel great the day after gardening — let the Effortless Gardening program show you how!

The full Effortless Gardening program contains:

  • MP4 Video (22 min.)
  • MP3 Audios (133 min.)
  • Included with the audio lessons is a written guide

The video and audio information do not overlap; they are separate parts of the Effortless Gardening program which are designed to complement each other. The DVD presents the Effortless Gardening theory and easy-to-understand, visually presented do’s and don’ts of injury prevention in the garden. The audio portion is comprised of Feldenkrais lessons and coaching sessions designed to re-educate your movement habits in your gardening activities. However, the video and audio are available separately from one another.


Effortless Gardening Video

The video introduces the principles of the Effortless Gardening program. It teaches you the Pain Equation and shows the best way to do many typical gardening activities. The video shows how to ease the pain in the knees, hands, wrists, neck, shoulders, and back. It also demonstrates the best ways to do the following tasks:

  • Weeding
  • Using a wheelbarrow
  • Shoveling
  • Pruning
  • Digging
  • Lifting
  • Relieve stress!

Effortless Gardening Audio

The audio instructional program includes four Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement® lessons and coaching on related tasks. The movement lessons can be done before or after gardening. Doing the lessons relaxes stressed muscles, improves flexibility and range of motion, and increases body awareness.

Listen to a sample

The personalized coaching sessions ground the Effortless Gardening theory in your body. Do the coaching task before the Awareness Through Movement lesson, and then again after the lesson. Notice if it’s easier afterward, even without specific coaching.

The Feldenkrais lessons and coaching sessions help you find your way to effortlessly embody the tips presented on the DVD.

The Audio Includes:

  • Lesson 1: Finding Your Hip Joints
  • Coaching 1: Using Long-Handled Tools, like shoveling, hand-tilling, raking and hoeing
  • Lesson 2: Supporting Your Hands
  • Coaching 2: Pushing Equipment, such as a rototiller, wheelbarrow or lawn mower
  • Lesson 3: Effortless Weeding
  • Coaching 3: Working Near the Ground, such as digging, planting, weeding, etc.
  • Lesson 4: Effortless Squatting
  • Coaching 4: Working Bent Over and Lifting, including harvesting, weeding, planting seeds or bulbs, and lifting pavers, heavy bags of mulch, or shovelfuls of compost.
  • The program guide introduces Miriam Levenson, explains the Feldenkrais Method regarding gardening, and tells you how to get the best results from the Effortless Gardening program. Refer to this guide when you’re curious or confused.
