Back-lying, often knees bent. Using a reference image of the five lines of the body, movements of folding the legs create gentle challenges to awareness and self-regulation as you first let the pelvis move freely, then later dynamically stabilize it. While the "core" reckons with the weight of the legs, you'll explore how to maintain simplicity and length in the spine, easy fullness of breathing, and efficiency of effort.
The lessons in this collection are available for our Patron-level donors only, but everyone can see all the lesson titles and descriptions below. (Click here to learn about our Member-level and Patron-level “thank you” benefits for donors.)
Each month Nick adds at least one new lesson to this collection as a way to thank our Patrons and expand our resource. As you explore, please leave comments and questions on the lesson pages. With your feedback, popular Straight from Class lessons may eventually become part of the public collections. This way Patrons, our Project-sustaining superfans, help us shape The Feldenkrais Project for everyone. You can also leave a comment on this page to request lessons or topics of study.
These lessons can be streamed by current Patrons as part of our donor benefits. They are not available to download.
