Feldenkrais with Margit Galanter: The Feldenkrais Method integrates movement and awareness to access clarity, power, and graceThrough the vivid grove, Margit offers lessons in The Feldenkrais Method®
The Feldenkrais Method is a powerful and revolutionary approach that uses gentle, mindful movement to bring new awareness and possibility into every aspect of your life. Developed by Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais, the Feldenkrais Method is restorative and educational, bringing attention to the interaction of one’s whole self. The practice of Feldenkrais can relieve stress, chronic pain, focus attention, and permit a deeper experience and understanding of oneself in the world. Margit studied the Method in California in Dennis Leri's Semiophysics Professional Feldenkrais Training program, became a Guild Certified Practitionercm in 2000, and shx is greatly influenced by the radical poetics of the Semiophysics approach that Dennis brought into being. Margit has completed many advanced trainings and self-organized study groups since that time, including work with trainers such as Olena Nitefor, Carl Ginsburg, Larry Goldfarb, and Russell Dellman. Margit’s facilitation includes the ongoing Feldenkrais and art project Motor, and the Salon for Feldenkrais and Embodied Research.
Feldenkrais offerings include both Functional Integration (FI): An hourlong hands-on session that is tailored to the specific interests of the client and Awareness through Movement (ATM): Hour-long lessons taught in a class setting. In a supportive learning environment, we investigate habitual movement patterns, and find new ways to act and perceive.
Margit approaches Feldenkrais from a mosaic of perspectives, grounded in living communication with how life is actually lived. Margit particularly works with supporting curiosity, taking time and space to develop a relationship with one self as a supported person-in-the world, developin access to one’s own felt sense in the moment, and with recovering each person’s unique power and grace in action. Margit also gives attention to a cultural lens of embodied practice, and shx incorporates these perspectives with sensitivity into workshops, sessions, and community gatherings, germane for the context and the people present.
Somatic practices have a fascinating role in contemporary culture, as they are vitally useful to support engaged action, depth, and self-awareness, yet are often unexamined in terms of social formations such as inherent biases, access, and cultural appropriation. Understanding the context of the Method can be valuable.
To experience grace and ease in action, the elegance of moving as a whole person, this can bring about useful change in how one acts in the world. Feldenkrais can support potency in a person’s movement in life.
