As I’ve mentioned before, I love that there’s always more for me to learn regarding the Feldenkrais Method. So, I started taking an anatomy class specifically designed for Feldenkrais practitioners. So cool. It’s an online class, with amazing computer images of human anatomy. We’re watching a screen, but we go from looking at images of bones, muscles and other tissue, to finding those places in our own bodies. Not only finding those parts, but also using movement to see—and feel—how they function.
After the first class, I taught a private online Feldenkrais lesson, using what I had just found out from my own movements. It felt magical. Somehow, what I’d just learned gave me a new perspective on how this person might find more ease and grace in their own movements. And it made a difference.
So, as I said last week, I haven’t come up with a brilliant new format for my classes. But I’ve been learning a lot, and I’m eager to share with y’all. I’d also love to hear about what you’ve been learning and noticing.
And a reminder: I’m teaching a workshop, Turning Fast and Slow—A Non-intensive Feldenkrais Intensive at the Jung Center of Houston, on February 19 from 10:30 to 3:30. You can attend in person or online. And I’m also offering a felt-making workshop (in-person only) at the Jung Center on April 30. It’s called Magical Felt Vessels. Talk about a fun, hands-on experience, and no prior knowledge or talent required.
I hope to see you soon—in person or online!
