1-hour daily exercise classes modify the nervous system’s movement habits, which improves posture, eases pain, & boosts muscles’ efficiency
What You'll Get
- $35 for 5 Awareness Through Movement classes (a $125 value)
These classes were created for people looking to improve their posture, have a healthier back, and improve the range of motion in their neck. This method is gentle yet effective for improving overall health and relieving body aches and pains.
Students divide their time between lying on cotton mats, sitting in chairs, and standing during classes designed to reintroduce the nervous system to movement-related learning. The session’s goal is to minimize unneeded muscle strain, improve posture, and aid in injury recovery. New students are strongly encouraged to attend basic classes.
The Fine Print
About Physical Therapy & Feldenkrais NYC
Moshe Feldenkrais learned how to walk twice—once as a baby and once as an adult, after a severe injury. While mastering the process for the second time, he began to develop his own exercise method. By returning the body to an infant-like state of motion learning, The Feldenkrais Method breaks the nervous system’s ingrained movement habits, formed through culture and personal upbringing, and reshapes them into healthier, more efficient ones.
The Feldenkrais Method's first component is one-on-one treatments, dubbed Functional Integration sessions. Through manipulation and passive movements, a practitioner can assuage the client’s aches and pains or address larger-scale neuroskeletal concerns. The second component is group classes, which teach new movement habits through an eclectic array of exercises, rather than by just proclaiming walking on your feet illegal.
