MP3 Download, 1 Feldenkrais Lesson.

This is a simple and intriguing lesson filled with detailed awarenesses with lots of space for sensing your personal experience. In the lesson we integrate the movements of the shoulders with the head, and the movements of the hip with the head and the shoulders. We cultivate a diagonal pathway between each hip and the opposite shoulder … an ability that is essential for crawling, walking, and many other daily movements.

This lesson is also a nice introduction to Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement® because I bring into subjective experience several essential principals of the Method:

  • Why we scan
  • Importance of resting
  • The reasons for reducing the effort
  • How small movements benefit more than large ones
  • How varying criteria changes what we feel and improves our decision making about ‘what feels right.’

    I especially enjoyed the ‘alternating’ rocking across the diagonal. Great for medially rounded shoulders – which everyone in the techo era has to deal with!

      Thank you, Terri!

    I love Al’s teaching style. His choice of language and pacing drew me deeply into a sensorial experience that facilitated my awareness of what I was doing and the “interconnectedness” of different parts of myself. He skillfully led me to reduce my effort to clarify my sense of myself. I have done many Feldenkrais lessons over the years as a practitioner and I found Al to be a very talented teacher in doing my first lesson with him. I felt great after this lesson!

    I needed this one. Thanks! It helped me release a great deal of muscular effort that I was holding in my right hip and right shoulder. Very gentle and easy, it put me in a very relaxed state. I could see people doing this in bed as a way to fall asleep at night.

    Easy to follow along. I have been to a Feldenkrais therapist so it was simple for me to know what to do. Without a visual however someone who has not done Feldenkrais would probably struggle with the verbal instruction only.
