What is Walking?


Author: Alan Questel
Media: MP3 Download, 8 Feldenkrais Lessons


We all walk … a lot! The only other things we do more than walking are breathe, move our eyes and use our hands. But walking is much more than just putting one foot in front of the other (anyone who has been challenged in their walking will tell you that). And with all that walking we do, do we really understand it?

In this audio program, you will understand more of what you do when you walk and how you do it and find ways of walking that are easier, more efficient and more graceful. Putting one foot in front of the other will take on new meaning with insights into how much the rest of you can be walking with you.
