4.0 étoiles sur 5Easy to read and understand28 janvier 2009

If you are interested in the Feldenkrais method - this book is a must read. It's much easier to understand and the exercises are well illustrated and not as complicated as other books I've read on this subject. The reason I purchased this book is because I believe the Feldenkrais exercises are the best exercises for back problems.

I got Shafarman's book in the hopes that the exercises in it would relieve pain I experience at night and it does. I exercises are very gentle and effective.

5.0 étoiles sur 5foundations of FlexAware10 juin 2011
Par Susan Lowell - Publié sur Amazon.com
I got this book as part of my study to become a certified FlexAware teacher, as this book represents much of the foundational work Shafarman did when developing FlexAware fitness. Three years later, I still read and re-read the book, as Shafarman's take on Feldenkrais' Organic Learning philosophy, which makes these exercises so effective, is so well articulated, particularly in the last couple of chapters. Also, as a teacher with an MA in Kinesthetic Learning, I recommend these chapters to anyone interested in education in general and/or the teaching/learning process. As a side note, I find that this movement/exercise philosophy and practice is a natural fit with the theory of biotensegrity which I've been studying. Apparently Dr. Stephen Levin (the "father" of biotensegrity) agrees, as he told those of us in the FlexAware teacher education program when he came to present that "it looks to me like you're re-establishing your natural biotensegrity." It certainly feels that way. I've used these exercises (and the FlexAware exercises that these are the precursors of) in my work with students from 19-94, and it's always amazing to watch people wake up to a new awareness of their own bodies over the course of only a few minutes. It's also a delight to hear them tell me that their back pain or arthritis is no longer bothering them. I first met Shafarman when a took a FlexAware class three years ago.As our class neared its end we were invited to stand up and walk around. I still remember the surprising and odd feeling when I stood--Whoa! It was like I'd been realigned. Everything seemed easier, more open, more in balance. I was completely mystified. How could doing something so simple and easy for just a little over an hour produce such dramatic results?
The real proof came when I arrived home later that night. My husband took one look at me and said, "you look different." Wow. It was that noticeable.
I signed up for the teacher education program the next day.

Very good for someone who has taken a workshop or class. Movements are described clearly and can be done alone.

5.0 étoiles sur 5Great system to overcome pain10 mai 2013

Applying the principles, I have been able to reduce and sometimes eliminate my chronic back pain. Turns out it is not structural or muscular - simply movement related after several injuries. Mixed the movement - pain gone. Read it. Apply it, you might get relief.
