    Good book, but I don't like Feldenkrais' writing style.

      agreed .....its a very difficult book to work from I am sure tapes or a teacher are needed ...Ruthy Allons book is far more readable and I am enjoying her approach to movement awareness

                One benefit these spammers bring is drawing my attention to threads I might never see.

                This book is now on my wish list.

                        Thank you for the great links. While I read Awareness Through Movement and thought it was a great book, I found it difficult visuallizing the movements described. The videos along with the text make it much clearer.:thumbs_up

                            For anyone interested in taking the Feldenkrais Method Teacher Training, here are a few links that may be of use. I hope it is not out of line, since this is a "book" page. If so, perhaps you could move the information to a better section of the forums.

                            Currently the curriculum is being taught in Basel, Switzerland along with San Francisco, Chicago and Houston: http://www.feldnet.com/FELDENKRAISTr...5/Default.aspx


                            And, this Feldy site may be useful and is written by of a colleague of mine who is one of the instructors: http://houstonfeldenkrais.com/

                            Need relaxation samples for your office? I have made a Deep Relaxation Massage Music Pandora Station and have others that may also be useful - about 8 massage music stations and about 49 other nifty options.

                              Thank you for all of the amazingly helpful links. It is much easier to do the lessons while listening rather than reading.
