Feldenkrais Method – Learning to Learn
Learning to learn.
The Feldenkrais method is about learning. Learning to recognise your habits, learning to sense more of yourself from the feedback you receive from the floor and from all your senses. Learning to learn to notice differences and making finer and finer distinctions.
I had formed habits post my injuries and whilst these (protective) habits might have been helpful at the time of the injury they were not helpful long-term. because I had learnt a new (not helpful long term) patterns and they had become the new automatic I no longer recognised them.
The thing about the brain is once it has organised itself and has worked out a solution it is no longer going to review any of its solutions. It is not going to review and to see whether the solutions it had worked out and had organised is actually a good one. Unless it develops and receives new input by paying attention, by moving with attention and finding new options and solutions.
When I started exploring movement lessons through Awareness through Movement classes I started to learn; learning to recognise my habits, learning to sense more of self and learning to notice difference and making finer and finer distinctions.
In Feldenkrais sessions, I learnt, by paying attention to what I was doing, to find options of how many ways I could do the same movement in different ways. I learnt what else could get involved in the movement and how I could use my skeleton for support. Over time by being able to make finer and finer distinctions and I find possibilities of how I could move with more ease, more comfortably and with less effort. I learnt over time to include more of myself in the movement and with more awareness catching myself in my habits and forming new, better habits that changed my life.
