1-2-1 Feldenkrais Lessons with Bärbel

The Feldenkrais Method with Bärbel RückerBesides the Awareness Through Movement (ATM) group classes  Functional Integration (FI) Lessons offer an individual way of working one to one. It is like a dance of two nervous systems together in search of ease and possibilities.

This is an effective approach for learning and changing habits, and it is particularly effective when combining it with ATMs.

Bärbel Rücker teaches in English, German and Danish.

Functional Integration Lessons, described by The Feldenkrais Guild UK

Each lesson revolves around a question: how do your habits of movement help you, but at the same time stand in the way of doing better? In a typical lesson, you and your teacher discuss this, then you lie fully-clothed on a low table as the teacher’s hands gently support you, suggesting, encouraging and guiding you towards new ways of moving and organising yourself.

Each lesson is unique and designed by your teacher to address your particular habits of moving and holding yourself. Your increasing self-awareness enables you to let go of these habits, to find and choose new patterns of movement; you may find similar development in the flexibility of your thinking and feeling.

The lesson will often lead to suggestions by the teacher for ways of working on your own, in order to help the new choices become a lasting part of your life. Lessons are particularly useful for specific or long-standing problems, to deepen your experience of Awareness Through Movement classes, or to provide ongoing support for your everyday life.
