Body Bisection Exercise (03:09)
Opposite hemispheres govern right and left body movement, but the brain can transfer learning. Students turn in circles in both directions before lying down on their backs. Mentally, they divide themselves in two and notice differences between each side.
Shoulder Raises (02:49)
Students lie on the left side with bent knees and place the right palm on the floor. They move the right shoulder toward the ear and back.
Shoulder Circles (05:25)
Students lie on the left side with the right palm on the floor. They move the right shoulder forward and back. Then, they move it in a circle. Feldenkrais teaches that the nervous system makes the best choice for movement.
Hip Movements (05:08)
Students lie on the left side with bent knees and the right palm on the floor. They move the right hip forward and back, and then up toward their head and down toward their feet.
Hip Circles (01:57)
Students lie on the left side with the right palm on the floor. They move the right hip in circles in both directions, noticing whether the hip or shoulder is easier to control.
Cortical Homunculus (01:14)
The self-image resides in the homunculus, arranged according to function; new movement increases self-awareness and improves function. Students lying on their back sense differences between right and left limbs.
Shoulder and Hip Circles (10:37)
Students lying on their sides move shoulders and hips in the same direction. Then, they move them in opposite directions by breaking down movements into components. Finally, they notice differences between each side and walk around the room.
