Movement Nature Meant, Ruthy Alon

Ruthy Alon, a Feldenkrais practitioner, emphasizes that movement is the essence of being alive. She says that whoever you are, in whatever condition, you can always improve the quality of how you move. She encourages you to feel safe and comfortable and to investigate the variations of movement. For example, how do you go from lying down to sitting up, in a way that is both comfortable and efficient?

Watch how gracefully she moves, how she uses the “momentum of the spiral” to move gradually and comfortably.

I love how she undulates for fun and also builds this vital movement into everyday activities.
