What is the Feldenkrais Method®?
The Feldenkrais Method® is about learning to move with ease and grace. Its usefulness is as varied as the desires and concerns of the people who come to it. Some people wish to improve their walking or running; others wish to reduce their low back pain. And yet for others, it is a doorway in discovering aspects of themselves. But with each person it will be a coming home – to the natural wisdoms of the body. As Julia Cameron wrote in The Artist’s Way, “the reward of attention is always healing.”
How Can I Walk in Nature with Ease and Grace?
For many of us, walking and being out in nature is freeing and helpful to our mind, body and soul. In the Sunrise Walkers, I give suggestions of the ways you can bring awareness to your body through movement. These suggestions are added to the walk to help focus your attention on some specific body part. You can improve the ease and integration of what a healthy walk can be. You can use walking and your body as the meditation for your experience in nature.
Here is a simple exercise to enhance your walking: Your Breath is Like a Chinese Lantern.
