Feldenkrais For Seniors

Learning to move with less effort makes daily life easier. Whether you want to be more comfortable sitting at your computer, playing with your children and grandchildren, gardening, walking, or performing a favorite pastime, these gentle lessons can improve your overall well being.

Our abilities to function with a greater range of ease and skill, however, remain to be developed. The Feldenkrais Method® teaches—through movement—how we can improve our capabilities to function in our daily lives.

The Feldenkrais Method® is a system which teaches, through movement, how to improve all aspects of everyday functioning.
Feldenkrais lessons teach you how to move with less effort and with more effectiveness to make daily life easier. Restrictive or painful habituated patterns are replaced with efficient, comfortable ways of moving.

Ordinarily, we learn just enough to function and do not develop our potential range of ease and skill. By bringing our attention back to what we are actually doing we can discover and shift our habitual patterns that interfere with our functioning so that we feel lighter, more graceful, tend to look and feel younger.
