Product Description

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

About the Author

Moshe Feldenkrais (1904-1984) is also the author of The Body and Mature Behavior and The Elusive Obvious, among other books, and originated the Awareness-Through-Movement method for increased health and heightened sensory awareness.

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.

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.

Fantastic reasoning in everything Fedenkrais writes. A great pity that this is dated.and that the illustrations are so poor and weak. Otherwise wonderful.

I have found this book really interesting and helpful. It has helped me to slow down and be more aware of the way I move around , but I have also found that I now feel motivated to exercise again which is great too. Have recommended to family who also love it.

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.

This is, perhaps, Feldenkrais' best know book. In it, he presents his ideas about our inherited properties, education and self-education and explains the basis of his eponymous method. This is done elegantly within the first half of the book. The second half contains a selection of Awareness Through Movement lessons which the reader can work through.

This is actually my fourth copy of the book - I've given the previous three away to people that have shown interest in it. I'm sure I'll do the same again in the future.

I'd recommend the book for anyone that wants to become more aware of themselves and how they move and be able to look after themselves better.

There are more state of the art modern adaptations to these exercises, it was interesting to see what would appear to be the forunner and staple to the new approach. But there again how many ways are there to skin a cat?
