When our ability to move comfortably is compromised, our movement repertoire can become limited, which has a negative impact on all daily activities and functions. With reduced mobility, older adults may begin to feel less confident, less socially engaged, and experience problems with reduced circulation, poor balance, joint pain, muscular stiffness, and have difficulty relaxing. Moving Forward with the Feldenkrais Method is a safe and effective way to help seniors maintain and protect their ability to move freely, safely and comfortably. The Feldenkrais Foundation is confidant that it can play a significant role in helping New York area seniors avoid many of these unnecessary physical problems.
To increase convenience and accessibility, the exercises featured in Moving Forward with the Feldenkrais Method can be done either sitting in chairs, or while lying on exercise mats. Each of the 12 sessions included in this program will be led on your premises by Feldenkrais Foundation staff, certified by the Feldenkrais Guild of North America, and trained by David Zemach-Bersin, a senior Feldenkrais Method Trainer with extensive experience working with elders.
Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, we are delighted to be able to provide Moving Forward with the Feldenkrais Method at the New York City area Senior Centers, free of charge for participants.
