Exercising with Lower Back or Hip Pain
Lower back and hip pain can make it hard to exercise. The alternative – not exercising – can lead to increasing weakness and stiffness, with a tendency to gain weight.
Even if you have already tried other forms of exercise without success, Feldenkrais is different. The focus during the movement classes is on learning to sense your body movements more clearly. Increasing your awareness of your movement habits is the key. That’s why Moshe Feldenkrais called the classes ‘Awareness Through Movement’
‘When you know what you’re doing you can do what you want’ Moshe Feldenkrais

Better coordination and control of your muscles brings a sense of effortless power.
