Feldenkrais Film Festival Winners

The 2016 North American Conference was a beautiful event, and we will have an comprehensive article about all the events that took place in a few days. Among the many successful innovations was our first annual Feldenkrais Film Competition. Originally there was to be one prize. But we received 16 entries, many different genres and approaches from all over the world. We were delighted and amazed at the variety and talent displayed by our community.

Together at Last: Alba Emoting, the Estill Voice Model, and the Feldenkrais Method

Is the Feldenkrais Method® really approaching a Tipping Point that could take it into the mainstream? And, if so, what does that mean for the practitioner community, devoted students and interested newcomers to the Method? What changes are coming, and how do we best prepare for them?  

The best answers for these questions will grow out of the interactions of experienced practitioners, new trainees and an interested public at this year's Feldenkrais Guild® of North America national conference, to be held on the campus of UNCA in beautiful Asheville, NC, July 7-10.

In the intervening weeks, you can learn more about the themes that will be explored in a series of fascinating interviews with Feldenkrais® practitioners and like-minded thinkers who will be presenting their ideas this summer.

Finding Stillness in your Meditation Practice

Feldenkrais® practitioners often ask their students to move toward comfort. In many guided meditations, those who sit are instructed not to resist discomfort. So, are these teachings incompatible, or is there a way that they can be put into productive dialogue with each other?

Roll into Ease

Have you ever exercised with a foam roller? If so, was it recommended to you as part of your rehabilitation from an injury or as a strategy to help you manage chronic pain? How did it feel when you did it?
