Midway through an 8 week "Moving out of Pain" class series at Open Space, participants filled out a questionaire asking what benefits, if any, they have noticed from the class.
Here are the responses:
- Freedom in my rib cage
- I notice an improvement in mobility after these sessions
- less pain in my body
- It helped my lower back so much in one lesson
- I have a lot of tension in my rib cage, my neck and upper back were very relaxed afterward .…
- it targeted my hip weaknesses and I was able to work through some of them - surprizingly..
- Felt stronger with daily walk after this lesson
- There is more balance … more grace with myself and my body to move in an enjoyable way.
- I feel more calm, more purposeful. my focus and balance have improved.
- Definitely noticing subtle shifts in the way I move…. I am working on writing a portion of my trauma story and I know that the Feldenkrais is helping me access both the memories, the healings, and the capacity to hold and move on from trauma.
- I am overall less restless with pausing, more connected with my skeletal system supporting my movement and less relying on pure muscular strength.
- I just feel better after I go to class
- I walk every day and enjoy playing with how I am interacting with the ground and with how much of my body wants to participate in walking. I try to relax and walk like a child would.
- My energy tends to want to float and I have a hard time grounding sometimes, the classes make me feel more grounded.
- it's certainly helping with my gait
- my body feels instantly different afterwards
I noticed immediate results from our zoom session together. My mom has been impressed by how much more easily her hips move when she walks.
