Feldenkrais® is a method of somatic education based on the body biomechanics and psychomotor development of the human being.
True pedagogy of the movement, it works directly on the link between the brain and the musculoskeletal system by means of specific micro-movement sequences that gradually improve the relationship between our feelings and our motor skills and lead to modify our interaction with our environment: posture, sitting at work, sports biomechanics, artistic expression, etc.
This allows to :
° Reduce fatigue, pain and unnecessary tension
° Gain flexibility and stability
° Release the diaphragm and breathing
° Find more vitality and serenity
° Develop the quality of our presence and attention
Through a regular practice, we manage to put away the everyday automatisms that limit us and gradually begin to develop a broader, more global attitude, in harmony with our actions. We become more stable, more flexible and better balanced both physically and psychologically.
This pedagogy is inspired by knowledge in:
° Physics: notion of weight, speed, gravitational force, energy distribution.
° Judo: notion of indirect approach, initiation of movements from the pelvis, and use of minimum force to reach maximum efficiency.
° Behavioral psychology: psychomotor development, work on our reflexes of fear and on stereotypical movements unsuited to the situation of the moment.
For whom ?
° For people of all ages who want to relieve the pain and limitations caused by work or an over sedentary lifestyle.
° Athletes, to help them improve their gestures while reducing the micro-traumatic risks.
° To artists who wish to develop their creative potential
The teaching is given individually or collectively, the two practices being complementary to each other:
During exercises on the floor lying down or sitting we will explore different patterns of movement that will gradually integrate and eventually become a second nature and reflect in our daily lives during our various activities.
The courses are built around various themes, such as:
° Relieving neck and shoulders
° Mobilize the pelvis and soften the lumbar spine
° Improve breathing
° Lighten the walk
° Working on coordination and balance
No particular physical condition is required, nor any age limit, since we always start from the state in which we find ourselves at the moment, each having its own bodily organization. There is consequently no objective, nor any obligation of success, since everyone is developing his own individual organization through the classes. That is why, young or old people can perfectly cohabit within the same class, there are no "levels" per se.
