Reviews for "Moving Out of Pain"
Class participants were asked (by questionaire) what, if any, benefits they were noticing as a result of this series.
Here are the responses:
- less pain in my body
- It helped my lower back so much in one lesson
- I notice an improvement in mobility after these sessions
- tensions 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, not an efficient way.
- I feel more calm, more purposeful. my focus and balance have improved.
- Definitely noticing subtle shifts in the way I move…. 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. 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
... and this was feedback on the class as a whole:
- Exceptional instructor - clear instructions on the movements and also a very gentle approach to getting in touch with our own physicality.
- a brilliant class! … awesome learning!
- A very valuable experience.
