Best Practices

Feldenkrais® lessons are probably unlike anything you have done before because there is no place for discomfort, extra effort, or drivenness, (things that are typically rewarded in our culture.)

It's founded on process-driven learning and relies on our innate curiosity and the paradox of letting go of goals as a way to achieve them. So, here are some counter-intuitive tips on how to approach these lessons:

Principles for Approaching these Lessons:

  • Do less than you can - go smaller & slower than usual and stay within your personal threshold of ease
  • Rest before you need to - lots of tiny rests activate neuroplasticity 
  • Seek quality over quantity - you'll get more from a few movements done with focused attention than many mindless reps 
  • Use your imagination - imagine what you can't do (yet), even if it's the whole lesson
  • Follow your curiosity - let go of ambition and just play & explore without judgement or goals

The approach is wholistic and all lessons address your entire person, including how you think and what you're feeling. Because change can happen in surprising ways, it's challenging to categorize what each workshop is good for, but I gave it a shot for your convenience. 

Each workshop is available for purchase as an audio download by donation, as an experiment in using the gift economy. Robin Wall Kimmerer describes it beautifully in this essay

The gift economy is based on the idea of trust, gratitude, and reciprocity. It relies on building a culture of interconnectedness, which is very Feldi, and acutely needed in this world. 

Thank you for participating in the gift economy!

I have found that the way Anita teaches applies on the deepest and most profound levels to everything else in my life. I have learned so much about how I respond, for instance, to confusion! And I have also re-learned the importance of play and looking for the easy way to do things, rather than pushing through it.”
