Perhaps you’ve seen this cartoon recently:
I laughed out loud when I saw this. And of course, my mind went immediately to those amazing “AHA!” moments that a Feldenkrais class or lesson can elicit with such frequency and regularity!
An “AHA!” moment is so wonderful. It’s something that can instantly change your mood, your attitude, your viewpoint. The ability to have an”AHA!” is the root of a sense of humor, a sense of wonder, and a sense of one’s place in the grand scheme of things. “AHA!” is not just a cognitive breakthrough — it is delightful because it is also SENSORY. “AHA!” is so rich and lovely precisely because it puts you squarely into the realization that you don’t know everything after all. You still have the capacity to be surprised. You still have the freshness, vitality, and energy to learn, and to embrace something new. That is precious indeed.
We can’t predict what kind of “AHA!” moment you will have at a FELDENKRAIS class. All we can say is that it’s highly probable that you will have one. Perhaps not today, but soon. We’re making your world a better place, one “AHA!” at a time.
