Alan Questel on Balance

For my ongoing Tuesday morning JCC Awareness Through Movement class I’m studying Alan Questel’s recorded workshop called Balance as my primary source this session. You can drop-in any time. For class students and others interested in diving deeper, here is a link to an article by Alan, and here’s 6 minutes of audio with Alan discussing balance, from the introduction to this workshop, in free sample mp3 form. Both sources touch on many of the issues that we will in class, at least indirectly. The article is written for practitioners, so it’s a little “inside baseball,” but it talks about the issues, and how Feldenkrais Method problem solving is applied to balance concerns. It also seems to have never been edited. Alan is a fine thinker and teacher–I’m not sure why the article lacks some polish.
