A Mindful Process That Shifts Perception
Until recently, people thought the brain could not learn after a certain age. But new ways to measure neurological changes in the brain have become available due to new technology. And research has confirmed that our brains evolve, grow new synapses and adapt, given the right conditions.
The FELDENKRAIS Method® of Awareness Through Movement® creates the right conditions. It allows you to live with ease again. It restores lost mobility. It helps you recover from injury in record time. It improves learning. It expands your ability to focus. It soothes the nervous system traumatized by loss and teaches you a simple process for regaining equilibrium, no matter what life throws at you.
Feldenkrais allows you to continuously gain ground, no matter what your age or what has happened to disrupt your sense of self. Feldenkrais is a form of Somatic Education, meaning it promotes the ability to adapt and find equilibrium in an ever-changing world across all levels of experience.
How it’s Taught: Class or Private Sessions
Improve Learning, Cognition & Regain Lost Mobility with Ease.
Awareness Through Movement® is the class format of Feldenkrais which allows you to continuously gain ground, no matter what your age or your traumas. Awareness Through Movement® (ATM), classes in the Feldenkrais Method® restore stability in your posture that is dynamic and recovers easily. It releases the years of tension that trauma entrains in your habitual stance of being guarded, so that you find new ease in your movements AND optimize Learning at the Neurological Level!
Classes in person: the fall semester begins after Labor Day. Address: Your Life Matters, Gogi Building, in the Big Room! 235 W Main St, Jacksonville, Oregon. Recordings to practice with at home are included in the price of the classes. You can also do classes online with Gabrielle Pullen, Somatic Grief Coach and Feldenkrais PractitionerCM since 2004.
Feldenkrais Functional Integration® (F.I.) is the one-on-one format wherein the practitioner, trained over a minimum of four years, instructs you via gentle touch to learn to optimize places where your mobility is not used to best advantage according to what’s possible. Most people do what they need to, not ever reaching the full potential of what they could be enjoying in terms of stability, power and the use of leverage. In other words, most people do not understand basic biomechanics. FI, done by a skilled practitioner, can propel you into a new state of clarity in mind and body. If you are dealing with years of losses, you may not realize how trapped you are in the unconscious tension patterns of your body until you experience the true freedom that Feldenkrais can provide.
Private sessions Address: Your Life Matters, Gogi Building, 235 W Main St, Jacksonville, Oregon. If you can't come for an FI in person, you can always do a private zoom lesson with Gabrielle Pullen online.
