15 Fantastic Feldy Lessons with BodyHappy.com

Introducing: Fifteen Favorite Feldy Lessons. 
We had an inspired lunch date at a Thai restaurant as we planned it out, each of us writing down our favorite fifteen lessons between bites of green curry. We knew we’d have some common choices, but wow – we kept being inspired by one another’s choices, saying, “Oooooh, we need that one too!”

So, this shall be part one of a two-part series of our favorite Feldy lessons. 

We’re sooooo excited!

We’ve created what we think is a great format that is user-friendly and will support you in integrating the embodied learning from the movement lessons into your daily life. We’ll help you to do just this with encouraging embodied inquiries and friendly self-awareness prompts to make your everyday movements much more mindful, pleasurable, and efficient.  Over 8 weeks, this class will include:  
  • Fifteen 30-40 minute audio recordings of some of our favorite Feldy lessons which you can do anywhere. You just need an internet connection and a comfortable place on the ground. For one lesson you’ll need a firm chair to sit on, and for many of them you may like a blanket or mat on the floor for your comfort.
  • Twice weekly mindful movement inquiries that follow the movement lessons to help you integrate the powerful changes you’ll experience in your body and your movement into your daily life.
  • Bonus audio recordings of somatic body-scan practices, including a very short scan and a luxurious longer one.
  • Brief experiential anatomy lessons to help you see/feel/sense your body with greater clarity.
  • Inspiration for your ongoing learning and everyday improvement.  We are genuinely thrilled by this work and our enthusiasm is contagious. We intend to leave you enthralled by your own resilient body-mind and wowed by your profound capacity for learning.
  • All the materials will be hosted in a user-friendly online class forum (Ruzuku) and you’ll be able to download all audio recordings to a device of your choice.
  This course will be great for you if:  
  • You’d like to do Feldenkrais lessons more regularly without having to leave your home
