Feldenkrais ® Awareness Through Movement ®
The Feldenkrais Method® is a form of somatic education that uses gentle movement and directed attention to improve movement and enhance human functioning. Through this Method, you can increase your ease and range of motion, improve your flexibility and coordination, and rediscover your innate capacity for graceful, efficient movement. These improvements will often generalize to enhance functioning in other aspects of your life.
The Feldenkrais Method is based on principles of physics, biomechanics and an empirical understanding of learning and human development. By expanding the self-image through movement sequences that bring attention to the parts of the self that are out of awareness, the Method enables you to include more of yourself in your functioning movements. Students become more aware of their habitual neuromuscular patterns and rigidities and expand options for new ways of moving. By increasing sensitivity the Feldenkrais Method assists you to live your life more fully, efficiently and comfortably.
Lynn Walker has been a Registered Massage Therapist for the last 15 years. Her training in the Feldenkrais Method began in 2008 in Victoria. She became a Certified Practitioner in 2012. Through this training she realized that by teaching the body it is easier to change habits and become more flexible. Since that time she has been teaching classes and individual students in Alberta. She recently moved back to B.C. and continues to learn about the body/brain connection by attending seminars and participating in online courses.
