New Step Forward offers movement education according to the Feldenkrais Method.
The Feldenkrais method is about creating new connections between your brain and body that results with a physical liberation and mobility that improves your mood and quality of life. It engages you in a fascinating journey to explore your body and your ability to move. The process has a direct and strong impact because it changes a person’s self image in regards to their possible movements. The method is intended for people of all ages. It can help you restore pain-free movement at any age or condition, recover from injuries, and release stress and chronic pain. It is often used by athletes who are interested in improving their performance and by people who’s work requires physical effort. The Feldenkrais practice is relaxed and pain free.
The strength of the method is in the direct dialogue with the portion of our brain that is in-charge of the movement. It involves very gentle work. The change occurs at a deep level and often people report that it occurred suddenly and that they found themselves doing things they couldn’t do before. Through the change in the body the work can impact your emotional state, your relations with others, and much more.
The first year in the life of every human being is crucial to the development of their motor skills. This is why we also offer Feldenkrais movement education for babies and their parents. For that click the image on the right.
