Feldenkrais Method at Studio 3 Newtown
What is the Feldenkrais Method?
The Feldenkrais Method is a form of education that uses gentle movement and directed attention to improve movement and enhance human functioning.
By paying to attention to the way we move we can increase ease and range of motion, improve flexibility and coordination and rediscover our innate abilities to move gracefully and efficiently. The teaching of the Feldenkrais Method focuses on improving our abilities to conduct everyday activities and explore our potential for learning undiscovered and rediscovered actions.

Who Can Try a Feldenkrais Treatment?
Young or old, physically challenged or psychically fit, anyone can benefit from the Feldenkrais Method. It has proved to be beneficial for those experiencing chronic pain of the back, neck, shoulder, legs or knees, as well as for people who work in an area demanding peak physical performance, such as dancers, sportspeople, musicians and actors.
It is extremely suited to older people who can regain their ability to move without strain or discomfort. And it has been very helpful for conditions of the central nervous system such as stroke, cerebral palsy and multiple sclerosis. In other words any kind of movement can be enhanced.
What Happens During an Awareness through Movement Session?
In Awareness through Movement (ATM) lessons the Feldenkrais practitioner verbally directs people through movement sequences, with an emphasis on learning which movements work better and sensing the quality of changes within our bodies. Through increased awareness we can recognise habitual patterns of movement and develop new alternatives.
ATMs are generally taught in groups and last from thirty to sixty minutes. They provide tools for us to develop the ability to care for oneself.
