Lesson: Connecting the Foot to Shoulder to Walking to Reaching

Lesson Source: Lavinia Plonka

As part of the second online Feldenkrais Awareness Summit, we wanted to share a Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement® lesson again in as many languages as we could find teachers to record it. We came up with 19!

All of these Feldenkrais teachers are presenting a lesson in their own words. This is not a translation but rather a bit of each teacher’s own personal teaching style.

What you can expect

While each person’s experience is unique, this gentle exploration will foster:

  • Easier breathing
  • Feeling calm
  • Connection and Increased Stability
  • Freedom in the shoulder girdle
  • Surprise that you can change so rapidly

How to do a lesson

  • Have a small stack of hand towels or a small firm pillow to place under your head as needed.
  • Go very slowly.
  • Pause the audio as needed to give yourself time.
  • Move within your own comfortable range. Do NOT push or strain. You will get more benefit by doing less.
  • Be curious and enjoy the changes.
  • Follow any healthcare restrictions you have been given.
