Show Notes

Episode 84: 

The second of a series of classes I am posting as an introduction to the Body Matter Feldenkrais® series, Soften the System.

Today we take another Feldenkrais® approach to practicing the ability to settle the body. This class utilizes the powerful effect that calming the hands can have on our whole system. 

Our hands, palm, and fingers take up an enormous amount of room in our motor cortex. And if we can effectively calm and inhibit the unnecessary of activity in one area of the motor cortex, the process tends to spread and extend to other areas in the motor cortex.  Areas beyond just the hand can thus be affected. We think we are doing something with our hand, but we are doing something with our brain! Feel how the softening spreads, and the relaxed feeling generalizes throughout your whole system. 

If you resonate with TODAY’s approach, you may be interested in these self-paced Feldenkrais audio series:
