Private - (FI) Lessons
What is a Functional Integration Lesson?
Feldenkrais is most interested in the fact that the brain has a set of movement patterns and habits recorded over your lifetime. Often this means that over your lifetime, you habitually use one particular joint or muscle more than others, causing it to wear out more quickly and become painful. Feldenkrais uses neuroplasticity to change those recordings and replace the less helpful ones with easier movement, spreading movement evenly throughout your body.
In your first Functional Integration lesson, I observe your movement patterns to understand where you are moving well and where you might be able to move more efficiently. Then, using gentle touch and some spoken guidance, I help you start to retrain your movement so it's easier, more fluid and pain free.
I personally feel like my joints have been greased when I get a Functional Integration (FI) lesson. My unecessary tension drops and my muscles - shortened and tightened by daily movement - understand how to lengthen.
There are many reasons you may want to get an FI:
Stiff/ Sore joints
Easier daily tasks
Awareness for activity
(Eg Dance,Handstands, gardening, cooking, acro)
RSI relief and prevention
Mental health support
(Gentle movement to soothe nerves and calm the mind)
Recovery from injury
Come dressed in your most comfortable clothes. No tight clothes or bras. Be ready to feel more comfortable and supported then you've ever felt before!
