Tapping into the natural processes by which babies learn to crawl, sit, walk and speak, physicist Moshe Feldenkrais spent more than 40 years developing and refining his method. During the class, you are guided through a series of deceptively simple floor exercises that have a profound effect on your posture, breathing and movement capabilities.
In this fun and supportive class, you might explore such common human functions as standing, sitting, turning, bending and reaching or even re-create movement patterns you learned as an infant, such as crawling or rolling.
These gentle and pleasurable movement explorations help you discover new options for moving and acting with more comfort, precision and power. This class is geared to those in recovery from cancer – including spouses, family and caregivers – and is offered free of charge.
Each week we focus on a different individual's needs, giving special attention and hands-on guidance to each student.
A wonderful complement to any medical treatment or exercise program, these classes are especially beneficial for anyone experiencing fatigue, pain or restriction of movement due to injury, surgery or treatment.
This class is sponsored by the UCSF Ida & Joseph Friend Patient and Family Cancer Support Center. It is open to cancer patients and their caregivers. You do not need to be a patient of UCSF.
