2020 Happenings:Awareness Through Movement® LIVE ONLINE CLASSES
Functional Integration® (FI)
SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
Functional Integration (FI) is the hands-on approach of the Feldenkrais Method and each session is personalized to meet the needs of the individual. The essence of the private work is steeped in the title of the approach. There is physical function that is limited and is most likely inhibiting your daily life as well as causing you pain. In each lesson the practitioner will create a conversation with body parts so they will work more efficiently as an integrated whole.
An FI is personally designed so the individual may let go of habitual holding patterns so new movement patterns can emerge. First, I will help you to observe and recognize what you do as you move. Then, I will bring to your attention certain movement patterns that you are doing, consciously or unconsciously, that cause restriction. Next, I’ll offer you different movement patterns to feel and explore. Lastly, I’ll help to integrate these new movement patterns into your experience and will give you something specific to work with so learning continues and the movement integrates into your daily self-use.
Each FI session is done in comfortable clothing on a specific Feldenkrais Table that is similar to a massage table only it is wider and lower to the ground.
