Everyone falls sometime. As we age, the danger of injury increases and with it, the fear of falling. Learning how to become more flexible and resilient can not only help prevent injury but can improve recovery in the event of a fall.
The Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement® lessons included in this program are part of a carefully researched movement education system that has helped thousands of people improve their lives.
Prevent falls or recover more quickly using these simple techniques. Based on the Feldenkrais Method®, which Smithsonian Magazine has called “a revolutionary approach to healing,” the lessons in both the eBook and the audio program are easy to understand and can be done by anyone.
The Fall Softly, Recover Quickly audio program, available on two CDs or as an MP3 download, is a learning experience comprised of seven movement lessons that will augment the eBook, or can be used alone. You can do these lessons in the comfort of your own home — some even on your bed! View the product page to see the list of lessons and listen to audio samples.
The enhanced eBook, The Little Book of Falling (and Getting Up), includes illustrations and other resources. View the product page to see the Table of Contents, read an excerpt and view the companion videos.
