Feldenkrais for Stress and Anxiety Classes

Release anxiety, unwind physical and mental tension and gently ease aches and pains with these very relaxing Feldenkrais classes. Principal Physiotherapist Jodie Krantz leads you through a series of ‘Awareness Through Movement’ lessons based on the Feldenkrais Method. The classes are held at the Chapel Space in North Perth. Lessons are intertwined with relaxation and mindfulness practices. During a Feldenkrais lesson you are guided through a series of movements designed to enhance your awareness of your body. Each week we explore a different movement theme. Most classes begin with a body scan and some test movements, followed by a Feldenkrais lesson. We usually finish each class with a guided relaxation that you can do either sitting or lying down. You need to bring your own Feldenkrais mat as well as 2 thick towels or a blanket to each class. Feldenkrais mats are usually thicker and wider than most exercise mats and are available for sale at Free2Move

In these classes you will:

  • Become more aware of  your tension habits and the way the anxiety and stress manifest in your body
  • Learn to move in a way that releases pain and tension
  • Be guided through relaxation sequences that help to centre you in the present
  • Improve your flexibility, posture and coordination

How Feldenkrais Works to Release Stress and Tension

Each of us develop habitual patterns of muscle tension in response to stress. Some people hunch and tense their shoulders. Others clench or grind their teeth, hold their breath or tighten their lower back.  To let go of pain and tension first you need to become aware or your habits. You can then find alternatives that work better for you. The Feldenkrais Method improves your ability to sense your body. It helps you detect tension and to let it go before it becomes a source of pain. As you become more aware of your body, you learn to move in a way that is comfortable, fluid, effortless and even graceful. Here is a 2 minute video which beautifully captures the ‘feel’ of Feldenkrais.
