Feldenkrais Exercises Improve How you Move

Feldenkrais exercises are designed to help you learn how to move better. These exercises utilize the capacity of the brain to learn through precise, effortless movements of the body.

As you perform these exercises, you will learn about your movement habits and how you have developed limitations in movement. Young children have not yet developed these habits, which is why they are so flexible.

A brain without a body could not think. -- Moshe Feldenkrais

Feldenkrais Exercises

If you ever had an injury, you adjusted how you were moving to reduce pain and discomfort. You developed a pattern of moving which usually remains after the injury has healed. Your brain retains this information and you continue to move in a limited manner.

With Feldenkrais exercises, you will discover new and more efficient patterns of moving as your body and brain learn to communicate better. They will engage your involuntary nerves and muscles and your posture will improve naturally.

You will experience an increased sense of well-being as you experience more coordinated movements and more effective decision making. You will acquire movement mastery with maximum control of your movements.

Feldenkrais exercises work with the neuromuscular system to develop new neural sensations throughout the brain, spinal cord and muscles. These exercises consist of slow, gentle movements designed to recalibrate our body awareness as we re-learn how to move. Doing these exercises, you will not become sweaty as they are not exercises for the body -- they are a workout for your brain!

The Art of Slowing Down - A Sense-able Approach to Running Faster was written by a Feldenkrais Method practitioner who is also a martial artist. This book will help you come to the realization that your running abilities are more related to your ability to sense your body than willpower or talent. Upon completion of the 20 lessons, expect improvements in posture, gait and ease of movement.


SmartRoller Exercises

Drawing on principles of the Feldenkrais Method, the SmartRoller Guide To Optimal Movement Set guides the reader through a series of non-traditional exercises and movements with a high level of control and attention, resulting in dramatic improvements in strength, balance, coordination and posture. Practicing movement awareness exercises will free unwanted habits as it utilizes the connection between mindful exercise and neuroscience.

OPTP SmartRoller is durable and resilient and is one of the most versatile foam rollers available. While its rounder side increases roller movement, its flatter side decreases movement. With the flatter side down, it can be sat on and stood on for balance related movements, while placing the rounder side down provides a more challenging, dynamic workout.
