A Matter of Life and Breath: Virtual Feldenkrais® Series
UNDERSTAND AND EXPAND YOUR BREATH WITH FELDENKRAIS®
The way you breathe — the rhythm of your respiration, its anatomical and emotional dimensions, the biomechanical means and neurophysical mechanisms, the resulting nuance, effectiveness, and potency, all of this together — has been influenced and impacted by training and trauma.
These reactions turn into physical habits, which become automatic, persistent, and invisible to you — because they happen below the threshold of everyday awareness. Whether you notice these relentlessly recurring patterns or not, the effects are real, they’re detrimental, and they keep building up over time. The resulting limitations reduce your respiratory repertoire and resilience, inhibit motion and emotion, and restrict physical and mental flexibility.
The virtual 'It's a Matter of Life and Breath' series introduces you to a somatic approach to self-knowledge and self-improvement. This program takes a gradual approach to exploring, understanding, and expanding the ways you can breathe. In each lesson, you explore a different, often unusual way to breathe.
By exploring various modes of breathing, you
- Develop greater flexibility
- Regain the ability to adapt how you breathe to what you’re doing
- Discover how the motion of your trunk — your upper chest, lower chest, and your belly and lower back — drives the action.
- Uncover the places where you hinder your breath.
- Find out how to unlock your potential for robust and responsive respiration.
