Feldenkrais Strategies Series

Facilitating learning

"Make the movements small, slow and without effort".... Many of us offer this suggestion as an introduction to the method or the class... and keep hinting at these ideas throughout a lesson. But what exactly do we Feldenkrais teachers mean by "small"? How slow is "slow"? And how do we define "without effort"?

We may find ourselves repeating such words but observing no change in the way our students are treating themselves. So how can we create an understanding of the true worth of the reasoning and attitude behind this way of moving and sensing onesself? How can we create a space in which our students may begin to "listen with a different ear" and question their inner understanding of such words? Inevitably, people will encounter their deepest beliefs about themselves and "how to go about something".

In this series of Workshops we look at the meta strategies behind our teaching. Rather than as "in betweens" we will make such instructions as "going slow" or "taking a break" the focus of the lesson itself. We will analyse the principles behind them and why they work. We will also talk about common triggers, associations and misconceptions that might come up for students and how you might frame things in such a way that your students become more able to follow your invitation. Just saying "go slow" is not going to work... so how DO we help our students to get more out of their Feldenkrais lesson?
