Alexander Yanai Chair Sessions, Vol 1

Would you like to try some rare and complex Feldenkrais audio recordings that you can do while sitting in a chair? Sessions that are rarely (almost never) taught to the public?

These are somewhat long, complex...and beautiful (in my opinion) audio recordings professionally recorded and edited by myself, Ryan Nagy. They are based on sessions from Moshe Feldenkrais' Alexander Yanai series. Some of the sessions have movements that are weird, challenging and difficult. And that is what makes them potentially life changing. Go slow, stop and rest whenever you want. You will want to do these sessions in a stable chair without wheels and with your knees and pelvis at about equal height. Purchase now and you will get an email with links that you can use to do these sessions immediately on a smartphone, tablet, computer or whatever else that you may have. Download copies to keep forever. Transcripts included.

1. Alexander Yanai 146: Bending The Spine In Sitting

If you have done Feldenkrais sessions in a chair before, this session starts out with some simple and gentle movements that will be familiar to you. And then it gets into all kinds of unique ways of moving your spine and neck. It is absolutely fascinating. And you will definitely feel differences in how you move during and afterwards.

2. Alexander Yanai 147: Standing Up From A Chair With Crossed Legs

Standing Up From A Chair With Crossed Legs! Sounds kind of crazy, huh? But no worries, if you can do just a portion of this wonderful session you will find some new potential in your body. It will help you find some new "space" in your hip and hip joints, lower back and elsewhere. Enjoy! (One of these days some is going to prove the Feldenkrais can virtually eliminate the need to hip-joint replacement, back surgery and a whole host of other unnecessary treatments. Well, that's my belief anyway!)

3. Alexander Yanai 148: Twisting and Bending The Spine Sitting On A Chair

Be careful with this one. It is powerful and fascinating. But easy to over muscle it. And it is complex. It took me a REALLY long time to prepare and edit this one. Nearly 16 hours just to edit the transcript and prepare for recording. I think you are going to like it.

Transcripts of the sessions are included at no additional cost.

Bonus sessions added March, 2020:

4. Separated twists on a chair

This session has a very classic theme (turning) and some classic variations with the head and eyes and shoulders that you may have experienced in sessions done while lying down. Based on AY #469.

5. Differentiated Turning in A Chair

Relatively gentle and relatively short (33-minutes). You will have a sense of having more integrated and open movement in my shoulders and neck. I hope you do as well. Enjoy!

6. A Pretzel In Sitting

This is a fun one. Find a stable chair without wheels and take 30 minutes to explore some new movements in your back and spine

FREE BONUS: A complete 5-session Feldenkrais series, perfect for beginners.

Designed to eliminate pain and strain and reduce stress while sitting. One of my most popular series, a $27 value. Yours for free. Here's what you get:

1. Turning Right and Left (19 minutes)

2. Opening and Folding (21 minutes)

3. Chasing Your Hip (12 minutes)

4. Full Sitting Integration (20 minutes)

5. Relax Shoulders While Sitting (25 minutes)


These are advanced sessions. So go slowly and only do what you can do. Rest whenever you want. And never - never - do anything in these sessions (or any Feldenkrais session) that is painful.

Can you do these sessions if you are a beginner or new to the work? You can, but only if you know how to be gentle with yourself. If you know that you have a tendency to struggle and strain and "force" a movement, I have to tell you flat out that you should not do these sessions. Are you comfortable not being able to finish a movement sequence? That is, can you be fascinated by your (likely temporary) inability to do something? And then use that experience to learn and grow? If so, you can try these session. But again - these sessions are advanced Feldenkrais sessions and you must be comfortable doing LESS than you know that you can do and staying well with your range of comfort.Ok? Enjoy!
