The FELDENKRAIS METHOD ®allows to identify what we do or how we organize ourselves to satisfy our intentions. Most of our habits are motor and behavioral patterns learned in childhood or as a result of events that required adaptation, all of which have now become automatic and, for the most part, unconscious. The Feldenkrais® Method enables us to become aware of our habits, to experience different ways of doing things (many variations) that are more in harmony with our current needs and limitations, and to savour the comfort and fluidity derived from these new ways of acting. «Awareness Through Movement lessons are designed to improve ability, that is, to expand the boundaries of the possible, to turn the impossible into the possible, the difficult into the easy and the easy into the pleasant.» -Moshe Feldenkrais THE OBJECTIVE BEING… to enable everyone to function at their best in everyday life. The Feldenkrais Method teaches us how each part of the body cooperates in each movement, helping us to perfect our actions and to be more physically and mentally available. Both group lessons (PCM) and individual lessons (IF) create the ideal conditions for learning, so that everyone can discover movements forgotten or excluded from their habits, and transgress limitations programmed following stress, an accident, an operation, or simply discover much more efficient and optimal new ways of walking, sitting, running, turning, standing... Neurophysiological research shows that the nervous system has the ability to reorganize itself. By stimulating this "relearning" potential, considerable improvements are rapidly felt in posture, balance, coordination and general well-being. WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE? Awareness Through Movement® (ATM) lessons are group classes that generally take place on the floor, often lying down, sometimes seated, and comfortably dressed. The practitioner guides you with words, without demonstrating any movement. This allows you to explore, at your own pace and without a model to imitate, movements whose theme is generally linked to a current motor function or stage of motor development. Lessons are based on the exploration of easy but unusual movements, performed "effortlessly". The aim is not to repeat a movement mechanically, nor to achieve success, but to become aware of one's habits.
