The team reflected on the new lesson by Gisele, 'Rolling Head, Pelvic Circles while Standing on Knees".
Some people find this lesson difficult -- not usually physically, but because we are thinking about the movement in a complex way.
​When you are in a complex or difficult situation, what are your reactions? In the Feldenkrais Method, we learn to recognize these reactions and apply alternate strategies. The team reflects on their own responses and provide a fascinating series of options.

Lesson 6: Rolling Head, Pelvic Circles, while on knees: Gisele St. Hilaire
This lesson challenges you to have more inclusive attention and to orient yourself more clearly in the world. Many find this lesson mentally demanding.  It can be helpful to remember: 
  • Go slowly
  • let go of any judgement
  • Let go of ambition
  • Be Kind to yourself
  • Develop the capacity to stay in the process
  • when you get confused, simply stop, clarify your attention, ask, "What is it you are attempting to do?" and start again.
Applying this lesson to real world experience, when you are in a complex or difficult situation, what are your reactions? Are there some aspects that you find in this lesson? 
Over and above all these ideas, and most importantly, HAVE FUN!

Team Reflections on Julie's lesson, the HOW of Learning

<![CDATA[Lesson 4: The HOW of Learning, with Julie Peck]]>Fri, 13 Sep 2019 16:00:00 GMThttp://kelownafeldenkraistraining.ca/recordings/lesson-4-the-how-of-learning-with-julie-peck
Lesson 4: The HOW of learning, with Julie Peck
Moshe Feldenkrais said "Life is movement. Improve the quality of the process and you improve the quality of life itself." 
Many of us get caught up in assuming that the method is about making movement easier, more efficient and graceful, and YES that is a wonderful part of the work, however the deeper investigation is in how we ‘get stuck’ in our habitual ways of moving and thinking, and the Feldenkrais method offers a powerful tool to discover HOW to ‘get unstuck’.
Because life is unpredictable and ever-changing, how do we find ways to become more adaptable, see things from more perspectives, become more resilient, and discover alternative ways to achieve our intentions that help us to lead more aesthetically satisfying lives.
All of this involves our ability to learn – bringing our curiosity to the fore, and finding ways to challenge ourselves and to explore alternatives.  I hope you enjoy the practical ways we will explore this in the conversation you will be watching.

She gives a number ideas for unravelling the habitual, and to bring the behaviour into the moment, allowing us to attend to it.
 She provides examples how one can integrated the ideas into daily activities.
