Hit a performance plateau you can’t break through?
Have limp that won’t leave you alone?
Want to learn something new?

Have you ever considered that successful training means that what you learned became involuntary? When the autopilot took control that makes it difficult, if not impossible, to change what you’re doing. In other words, your current capabilities are probably the greatest limit to living up to your potential. This is the unrecognized the double-sided nature of neuroplasticity: the brain’s ability to change means you can learn continuously yet the changes you’ve already made interfere with improving your coordination. 
 
In this interview, Dr. Goldfarb shows you how the Feldenkrais Method of neurophysical education recognizes and resolves this perplexing puzzle. Combining contemporary theory with decades of practice, Larry reveals the secret of wresting control from the autopilot. You'll learn how to harness the processes built into your nervous system to move beyond your habits. That’s a game changer. Discover how to update your abilities, develop your dexterity, and do the things you want to do better than ever before.
