The Feldenkrais Method® is an educational method focusing on self-awareness and learning involving gentle movements, which can bring about improved coordination and enhanced functioning. It is named after its originator, Moshe Feldenkrais (1904-1984), an engineer and physicist as well as a Judo teacher.
What to expect
You will be talked through a sequence of gentle movements that works like a physical riddle. Each new movement is repeated and explored, enabling you to become familiar with it, and to begin to play with unaccustomed movement relationships. By engaging your curiosity, gently and at your own rate, you learn to explore the world of your internal sensation. You learn to use this awareness to release chronic patterns of tension and create new movement possibilities and to improve your flute playing from the inside out. Throughout you will be given suggestions on how to transfer the new learning directly to your flute playing.
