Fostering a Learning Instinct (01:08)
Stephen Rosenholtz says people who improve their skills tend to have a more developed kinesthetic sense and find more efficient ways of doing things. Feldenkrais lessons occur lying down or sitting to decrease gravity and increase sensitivity to the "sixth sense."
Head Lift (02:03)
Students lie on their stomach and lift their head as far as they can comfortably.
Right Hip Lift (05:19)
Students lying face down place their right hand on the floor and turn their head to the right. They lift their right hip and bend their knee to the side. Finally, they lift the head and assess for movement changes.
Forehead Touch (02:03)
Students lying face down move in a line from touching their chin to the floor to touching the forehead. They lift the head and assess for movement changes.
Addressing Posture Decline (02:41)
Rosenholtz discusses Feldenkrais' analogy of wearing a heavy backpack. If uncorrected, gravity causes us to lean forward with age. Students lie on their backs, interlace hands behind the head, and lift. They relax and sense the lumbar space.
Knee Press (04:07)
Students lie on their stomach and bend their knees with feet toward the ceiling. They press one knee into the floor and then the other, and then alternate lifting knees. Finally, they lift their head and notice movement differences.
Hip Lift with Twist (02:54)
Students lying face down place their left hand on the floor and turn their head to the left. They lift their left hip and bend their knee to the side while looking over their left shoulder. Then, they switch sides.
Head Lift Differentiation (04:08)
Students lying on their stomach lift the head like a cobra while looking downward. Then, they lie on their back and sense spatial changes. They lift the head and knees toward each other. Finally, they walk around the room.
