A wonderful article about the Feldenkrais Method featuring my friend and colleague Chrish Kresge who has a practice in Washington DC.
Is 6 hours of sleep is enough?

If you’re interested in learning more about the profound importance of sleep for our overall health, I recommend this fascinating book. Walker references an impressive body of research (including his own) and his writing is fluid and easy to follow. Learn about the processes that occur while we sleep and why a “non-negotiable 8 hour sleep opportunity” every night is essential for pretty much all functions including memory, cardiovascular health, learning, emotional health, weight control, and much, much more!
If you’re having trouble getting comfortable while sleeping, wake up with discomfort, or struggle to breathe deeply an relax in the evening as you prepare to sleep, see if Feldenkrais can help! Schedule a private lesson with Fritha.
*I encourage you to visit your local bookstore or library if you’re interested in reading this book!
This book is a fascinating dive into understanding how talent, or skill, is developed and what is happening in the brain when we learn. The profound importance of the role of myelin in learning gives us a deeper understanding of what Moshé Feldenkrais knew about how we learn – years before neuroscientists had the technology to understand what was happening in the brain – and helps us to clarify our understanding of the process we engage in during Feldenkrais® lessons.
The way we learn and develop skill (or talent) is through practice. In his book “The Talent Code” Daniel Coyle describes in depth the important elements of ‘deep practice,’ motivation, and masterful coaching in developing skill, and coherently describes the neuroscience behind learning.
And if you’d like to experience deep practice through the Feldenkrais Method for improving ease and comfort in your every day living, contact Fritha to set up an initial session.
The process of engaging in Feldenkrais lessons can lead us into unexpected terrain. Learning about ourselves through awareness in movement can result in profound and deep change. We can learn to find clearer support and an ease in movement that help us feel lighter and reduce pain and difficulty, and these changes resonate with deeper layers within our personality. The Boston Feldenkrais Training Blog interviewed Feldenkrais Collective members Fritha Pengelly and Sarah Young about their experiences with Feldenkrais in relationship to dancing.
