A fun, playful and fascinating lesson of getting to know your feet. Our feet do so much work for us, yet we don’t pay them much attention. Through this lesson, you will learn to differentiate, move, and sense the different parts of the feet. This creates ease and comfort not only in the feet but throughout your entire self. This lesson is one that my students talked about for weeks afterward.
This lesson creates a powerful ease and openness through the entire chest and back. Movements of the spine through the chest help to differentiate ribs and vertebra.
The hands drape over the head to hold it while you explore many ways of twisting through the spine. The result is tremendous freedom of the neck and spine.
By working in various positions and turning the heel or heels out to sides, you begin to cultivate agility in the ankles and lower legs.
This lesson is an exploration of the movements of flexion. This creates length in the front of us and eases the muscular work of the back.
This year (2017) we are exploring Alexander Yani lessons. These were lessons Dr. Feldenkrais taught at his studio on Alexander Yani Street in TeleVive, Israel.
