Relax Your Body And Mind With Your Attention
The audio sessions in this downloadable Feldenkrais-based product mainly involve concentration and focus on the different parts of your body. Thus, anyone can do them regardless of experience with Feldenkrais and regardless of physical ability. They range from 4 to 40 minutes, so you can find a session that fits into your schedule and time-frame. Relax. Move out of pain. Eliminate stress.
1. Orienting: Environment, Body, Breath (sitting, 13 min)
If you have done somatic experiencing work, this session may seem familiar to you. It is short (13-min) but can be powerful. And I encourage you to do this session first and then move onto any session below which interests you. It can help you reduce stress and create a sense of safety and relaxation.
2. Take All The Time That You Want (5 min, sitting)
This is a good session to do if you only have a few minutes. It is about creating a body/environment focus of your choice and then seeing how that affects you. It is very relaxing and can help you regain your focus.
3. Scanning The Bones (10 min, sitting)
A unique Feldenkrais session, not found anywhere else. I created it by special request from people in my private membership group who wanted some shorter sessions that they can do to relax/refocus when they only have a few minutes. Can be relaxing and rejuvenating. And will change how you think of and experience your body.
4. Scan: Your Five Cardinal Lines (7:30 min, sitting or lying down)
A "scan" is Feldenkrais lingo for taking a few moments before, during, and after movements to rest, give yourself time to integrate movements, and notice changes. This is a 7-minute session that is ONLY a scan and it can be deeply relaxing. It is adapted from the session below called "Deep Scan."
5. Painting The Left Side of The Body (40 min, sitting or lying down)
Have you ever done an "asymmetrical" Feldenkrais session - a session done on only one side of the body? They are fascinating. This one is done in your imagination only - and only on your left side. Sound strange? You may be surprised by what you can learn by doing this session. I recommend that you do this session the first time while lying down. Later you can experiment with sitting or lying on the stomach if you would like to.
6. Esalen Deep Scan (lying down, 38 min)
This is a classic session. It is based on the session that Feldenkrais taught when he started the famed Esalen workshop. It has some unique body imagery and gentle movements of the head and shoulders near the end.
7. Mouth and Head Cavity (47 minutes. sitting down or lying)
Deeply relaxing. Do this session sitting or lying down (your choice). Even though it is gentle...the first time I did it I had to stop after about 20 minutes. So...take your time...all the time you need to really enjoy and benefit from the session.....
8. Simpler Lines (42 minutes, lying down)
This is a rare session, based on Alexander Yanai 340. It was unlike anything I had encountered in Feldenkrais's work. Primarily because the session asks you to think about/imagine your body in very specific ways as you do some gentle movements.
9. Growing A New Eye (43 minutes, any way that you want!)
If you have been on my email list for several years, you *might* have this one already. But I get great feedback on it and want more people to have it. You can do it sitting in a chair or sitting on the floor cross-legged. It is based on an extremely rare session first taught by Moshe Feldenkrais in Hebrew in Israel in the 1950s. It was translated into English for the first time in the late 1990s and I do not think it has ever been shared publicly.
