With your list of resolutions for self-improvement in hand for the coming year — how will you create the conditions for success?
Moshe Feldenkrais said that one important quality of “good” movement is the ability to move in any direction at any time, without adjustment or preparation. Think of the martial artist, poised to field multiple attackers coming from multiple directions. . .
The Feldenkrais Method helps people to be more self-reliant, more resilient, more adaptive — and more effective in daily actions. New Year’s resolutions usually address an awareness of “stuckness” in some aspect of life: a prior and persistent failure to change something (break a habit, lose weight, save money, be nicer) that you believe would make a significant difference in your quality of life. If you haven’t been able to move in the desired direction, perhaps you could benefit from learning more about movement itself.
