I noticed: these short videos with movement tricks are all just and good, but they don’t give me the same feeling as I get from lessons that are more true to the work of Moshé Feldenkrais. After a proper Feldenkrais-inspired lesson I feel updated, upgraded, smooth and content, I feel as if I’m on top of the world and as if being embodied (for the lack of a better word) is the best thing ever. I get a satisfying, fresh feeling from the movements of my latest Squat to sit video [link], and I can tell from my work experience that it can greatly help with the motion of sitting down and getting up, but I don’t get the feeling that got me into studying the works of Moshé Feldenkrais in the first place.
Friday. Again, I woke up at 3:50am. I planned a lesson that’s more in accordance with Chapter 1 of Moshé Feldenkrais’s book “Awareness Through Movement”, Chapter Title: What is good posture? “In moving from side to side a pendulum passes through the position of stability at maximum speed,” he wrote. Nice. Then I put the book aside and spent 2 hours planning my next video lesson and went back to bed at 6am.
However, I failed to film today. Hopefully I will succeed tomorrow.
