Back-lying, often knees bent. Learning how preparatory movements for taking a step involve the whole self, by sensing and exploring movements of the sternum, both as a reference and a challenge to expand the self-image of walking. Lengthening and sweeping the arms in many directions encourages suppleness of the chest and awareness of the sternum, and helps integrate them with movements of the pelvis, hips, and walking.
The lessons in this collection are available for our Patrons-level donors only, but everyone can see their titles and descriptions below. (Click here to learn about our Member-level and Patron-level “thank you” benefits for donors.)
Each month I’ll be adding at least one new lesson to this collection, as a way to thank our Patrons and expand our resource. The newest lessons appear at the top of the list.
As you explore them, please leave comments and questions on the lessons 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.
Do you have a request for a new lesson on a topic you’re interested in? Please ask in the comments below! Everyone can leave a comment, not just Patrons.
In order to keep the content coming these may be edited more lightly than our primary public lessons. As your comments and questions arrive I’ll add to the lesson notes, and if it seems like a lesson should join the public collection, I’ll do final edits on the audio content.
There’s no particular learning order to this collection, so follow your curiosity! If a lesson isn’t comfortable initially, try another and return to it later.
These lessons can be streamed by current Patrons. They are not available to download.
