about Madeleine's Marvellous Movements

Jeanette

The Feldenkrais Method® has worked wonders for me. For the first time in years I feel alive and energetic. This method has encouraged me to be independent and to exercise properly as I have regained some of my youthful mobility. Relief from pain has been a pleasing result from these classes and I look forward to many more movement lessons in the future.

All Thanks to Feldenkrais!

Who would think a woman of my age could grow taller? But I have! My friends and my sister have noticed. “There’s something different about you these days” they say, and we then stand back to back. My new height is noticeable and they are amazed. It is all due to the Feldenkrais Method®. These simple movements have straightened my shoulders and spine and my head no longer tilts to one side. There is now a consciousness of my posture and a growing suppleness. I am delighted and very grateful.

I decided to investigate the Feldenkrais Method® after I had strained my lower back once again while gardening! I felt I needed to learn to move in a new way that would protect my back from harm. My personal lessons with Madeleine Edgar were a revelation. The rhythmic movements in which she gently guided me not only relieved the soreness in my back but at once I was walking and sitting in a freer way. Further lessons made me aware of my lovely skeleton within me, which was now moving with grace and efficiency.

Immediately I became aware that I was developing tension and tightness in my back when I rushed to meet a deadline. I was able to relieve that’s tress by moving and breathing differently. I had often subjected my body to strain by doing twisting, tugging and jerking movements as I performed tasks. The rounded, relaxed Feldenkrais movements have taught me to intuitively use my bones and muscles to achieve results without effort. The movements are very personal. This appeals to me because I find repetitive exercise regimes and competitive sport so boring and a strain on my aging body.

I no longer have back pain after gardening or a long day at work. I sleep better and find I am enjoying activity. I even found myself rising on my toes to reach into a top cupboard then realised I haven’t moved like this since I was a child! I look forward to participating in Awareness Through Movement™ classes and moving through my life with awareness and a joyful step.

“Teaching and voice problems seem to go hand in hand. I’d tried a few other ways to address my voice problems, so I thought I had nothing to lose in trying this workshop. At the end of the day I found awareness exercises using the diaphragm, jaw and mouth, increased my voice awareness and increased my strength and volume. I highly recommend this program and will be attending the next workshop”
