About the Resiliency and Adaptability themes for this series:
“Whereas health is conventionally thought of as a static state to be maintained, Moshe defined health as a dynamic condition, the ability to recover from shocks. Whether originating from within or without, from sickness or accident, from violence or social upheaval shocks perturb our balance; health is the capability of regaining balance and standing poised again on one’s feet.” – Mark Reese, from Moshe Feldenkrais: A Life in Movement
While we can think of The Feldenkrais Method® as a way to alleviate pain, recover from injury, or improve a skill, at the heart of the method is the underlying principle of self-preservation, “standing poised” on our feet. The life experiences that contributed to Moshe’s extraordinary work included very real life and death situations and the learning that came from that. The method was also born of his experience as a Judo master as well as a variety and depth of study that was led by a curious mind.
At this moment in history we can utilize the method of self-awareness developed by Dr. Feldenkrais in order to help us maintain resilience, and support creativity and adaptability.
The slowing down and resting that happens in Feldenkrais® lessons supports the Parasympathetic Nervous System, which can be helpful if we are feeling stressed and anxious. Being in overdrive all the time is not good for our immune systems!
And our explorations of various movement puzzles in the lessons gives us the opportunity to find creative and new solutions to old and sticky patterns. Every lesson invites curiosity as we explore new possibilities in our body patterns. And indeed, the patterns of body are patterns of mind – so we open ourselves up to new ideas and solving problems.
I invite you to join me in this learning environment that prioritizes enjoyment in learning, and supports whatever it is YOU need in this moment.
