I see the yoga class as a laboratory for self-exploration. Through taking different postures and getting in touch with our breath and body sensations, we can observe, reflect and redirect our path. It is a chance to get intimate with the phenomenon called “self” in the most direct way. Yoga offers us an opportunity to reprogramme our habitual behavior and allows us to expand to our full potential. In the class, we will work to improve the communication between our physical and mental bodies. We will learn how to pay attention to the “here and now” and become friends with it. In the practice, I emphasize accurate alignment in the Asanas and cultivating the right mental quality and attitude within the practice.

The Feldenkrais Method is a form of somatic education that uses gentle movement and directed attention to improve movement and enhance human functioning. Through exploratory, non-judgmental processes, the students are encouraged to observe and learn about themselves and their movements. Every person has a vocabulary of movement patterns which she/he developed through life according to his/her self-image, personal history and genetics. Some of the patterns are useful but some are limiting and can cause pain and damage – often without us even being aware of it. Through the method, students become more aware of their habitual neuromuscular patterns and rigidities and expand options for new ways of moving. Forgotten paths in our ability to sense, feel, think and act are explored – making it possible to lead a full life and make decisions according to one’s full potential. The method helps us to regain physical and mental flexibility, efficiency, freedom, and coordination, reduces stress, improves the breathing and develops an effortless posture. These improvements will often enhance function in other aspects of one’s life.
