Moshe: “Let All The Other Systems Die” (Even Feldenkrais)

Below is a link to listen (and another to download) one of my favorite quotations from Moshe Feldenkrais where he emphatically states his belief on something that you will rarely hear from other sources. I think you will find it thought provoking. Enjoy:

  1. Hey Ryan,
    that is a wonderful quote of Moshe Feldenkrais with the emphasis on the person as a means to improvement and not the method. Even the best method can lead astray, whatever the best method could be. Listening to the quote makes it very clear to really connect with a person during an FI session.
    Thanks for posting this.
    If you do not mind, I would also like to post it on my webpage. Let me know if this is ok for you.
    Best
    Chris

  2. Moshe is simply suggesting that each person should discover, in this case where the legs lie, what is simplest, easiest, most functional organisation for their structure and leave aside preconceived ideas of a “good or correct” posture/acture. If a person has a background of yoga they may automatically have wide legs, and if a person, probably a woman, had ideas instilled in her about “good girls” or “ladies” don’t have their legs apart then their habit may be to hold their legs close together and he is suggesting that leaving all ideas aside, there is a more ideal functional place to have the legs that will in fact be easier. He is giving the student permission to find where that may be for themselves, to feel, to find, a better place and not just do it because a teacher, be they a Feldenkrais teacher or a yoga teacher tells them to do it this way. This is just another way of trying to get a person into sensation and out of habit.
