The Feldenkrais Method in Minneapolis-Saint Paul with Nick Strauss-Klein
Your Navigational Pelvis
Back-lying, knees bent. Learning how the interaction of the feet with the ground drives the pelvis in all directions. Integrating the spine, head, and eyes. A variation of the classic "Pelvic Clock" Feldenkrais ATM lesson.
If you have any discomfort pressing or lightening your feet, do less, rest more fully and longer between movements, or even proceed only in your imagination. You literally can’t do too little, as your brain will engage the musculature enough to promote the neuroplastic process, even if you’re only imagining the movement or it’s so small no one watching could even see it.
For another version of this ATM, try the Pelvic Clock lesson. It’s a more traditional teaching of the classic circling-the-pelvis Feldenkrais ATM.
