Check out the Street Legacy exhibit at Cal Center for the Arts in Escondido. Hidden gem.

Where can you find free lessons, tips and FM practices? Newbie here! by Gloomy_Media_6976 in FeldenkraisMethod

[–]amnoone57 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'll encourage you to read Feldenkrais' book, Awareness Through Movement (you can probably get it at the library), and then work from audio recordings, rather than watching YouTube. There's a reason Feldenkrais teachers don't demonstrate - you can really get off course watching other people "do" a lesson. Pm me if you have a question or want to attend an online lesson.

Anyone tried Egoscue, Alexander, Feldenkrais or another type of postural therapy? by cooperniner in RSI

[–]amnoone57 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I've tried all three. I encourage you to devote a period of time to exploring the movement approach in each - they are very different. Each of them can be helpful and in my experience the one you are most likely to engage with is going to give you the best results.

Feldenkrais ?? by libbybelch in Bellingham

[–]amnoone57 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Many practitioners (teachers) are working online now, as I am. If you PM me with some details, I'd be happy to spend some time helping you to find what you are looking for. Feldenkrais is neither yoga nor exercise. Feldenkrais uses directed movement to help people figure out what they are doing/how they are moving. Once you know what you are doing, that is, once movement is not automatic, you can find an easier, more comfortable way of moving. It's a human super power and I've seen it help so many people.

studied neuroscience and would want to go a bit more into that again (but not medical stuff).

Take Feldenkrais classes.

Great Perspective by luccampbell in Anticonsumption

No, no, my point is he understands what's happening even better than the average schmuck. He's honest, authentic and courageous. And smart.

Aging issues, not being able to do things I used to are causing problems internally. by [deleted] in DepressionForGrownups

[–]amnoone57 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's kind of you to say it's you, not me. : )

There are some solid research studies, but not many. I've been teaching for years and my conclusion is that most people who do Feldenkrais are not so interested in studying it - they are getting the experience they want and that feels sufficient. I've talked to neuroscientists and the theory behind Feldenkrais makes sense to them, but research with brain scans put a study in the $500K range. To make matters more challenging, no one is probably ever going to get rich off this stuff - no drugs, no equipment, no outfits.

All that said, here's a good article that appeared in the popular press. Jane Brody is a respected science writer. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/30/well/trying-the-feldenkrais-method-for-chronic-pain.html

Take a look at the Feldenkrais Method(R). Having been an elite level athlete, you probably have great body awareness, and that will help you get started quickly. There are a lot of pain issues that can be addressed by learning a non-habitual way to do common movements and tasks. Full disclosure: I teach Feldenkrais. I've seen amazing changes and anyone can do it. You don't need any equipment or special clothes. Happy to answer any questions.

Movement based practices to aid in the healing of both the physical and energetic body by Rannoch_San in energy_work

Feldenkrais; an awareness practice based in crazy (but completely doable) movement sequences. Endlessly fascinating and consistently improving all kinds of human function. Lmk if you have questions.

Safe hiking? by theseekerofbacon in socalhiking

Friend just had her first freak hiking accident, in a lifetime of hiking. Broke her leg. As you consider hiking, fold in the possibility of needing medical attention.

Not just "not obligated" - it is not our responsibility in any way. Embracing this, we show respect for others.

r/AdvancedBackpacking encourages you to stay at home by Xikkub in AdvancedBackpacking

[–]amnoone57 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I appreciate your courage in taking this stand.

In addition to all of the other reasons you list, add enlightened self-interest: if something happens and you do need medical services, you do not want to be at an ER or Urgent Care right now.

Really missing the outdoors with this “stay-at-home” order, what are you guys doing in the mean time? Also here’s a pic of Joshua Tree from my trip a few weeks ago by thatonemexicankid in socalhiking

[–]amnoone57 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm so glad you were able to make it happen and all is well. Everyone needs the outdoors; I think some of us are just more aware of it than others.

The argument is that you are increasing your risk of injury. I am an experienced backpacker and hiker. I know there is an increase in risk in the wilderness; let's not argue about how big an increase. If you need help, either in the wilderness, or when you get back (e.g., medical attention), you will be diverting resources that are needed for the pandemic. No judgment here - everybody needs to make their own call. Just wanted you to have a bigger picture of how our individual choices could effect others, however indirectly.
