Feldenkrais™ Days in France
On the 20th and 21st March 2020 we are organising some free activities for an event entitled “Brain in movement, the joys and challenges of the Feldenkrais Method™”.
We hope to reschedule this event which was cancelled due to the health crisis.
Contrary to what was previously thought science has now proved that the brain is plastic and that it can change in positive ways throughout our lives. So what goes on in our brain when we learn? What happens when we develop new skills or habits deemed “good” or “bad”? What role does brain plasticity play in the practice of the Feldenkrais Method™?
Moshé Feldenkrais (1904-1984) developed his innovative approach to the study of movement long before the notion of neuroplasticity was widely accepted yet he developed strategies to bring about a particular type of learning that would facilitate change.
Through working with people of all ages he discovered very early on that given the right conditions we can increase our ability to learn new skills, improve movement difficulties, overcome injury and chronic pain, reduce anxiety and change compulsive behaviors.
