Review

"The exercises are so simple and so ingenious they lead on to others which one can invent in the same style. It is so clever to develop the body by making the mind and senses aware of each side of the body separately. It increases the subtlety of sensation and starts a competitive cycle as each side stimulates the other."-- Yehudi Menuhin"Feldenkrais's most popular and accessible book."-- "Smithsonian --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars A simple way to a graceful, painfree body 2 Feb 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Feldenkrais was one of the century's great geniuses. Originally recognized for his nuclear physics research and for his introduction of Judo to Europe in the 30s, he developed the gentle Feldenkrais Method during the second World War in respose to his own knee problems. In Awareness Through Movement, Feldenkrais gives you a wonderful introduction to the group part of his method--Awareness Through Movement. The processes are gentle, painless and easy. The best way to use the exercises in this book is to get yourself a cassette player and to then read the instructions aloud into the cassette. Then rewind the cassette, lie down on your back, hit play and be amazed as that magnificent voice on the cassette recording shows your body how to improve more quickly than you've ever believed possible.

5.0 out of 5 stars Think again 17 May 2009
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have attended work shops and this book is an original by the man him self. It explains the ethos behind them. Some thing I feel we could all adopt. Plus simple exercises to get you started. Well worth exploring if you are either a pilate's or a yoga fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Feldenkrais 30 April 2012

I thought this book was difficult to follow without going to Feldenkrais classes. But it is interesting as this is his is I believe his first book on the method.
