Moshe Feldenkrais said, 'we act in accordance with our self image'. These lessons will help you enhance your self image through sensing, imagination and movement. They clarify key points of articulation in the body: the shoulders and the hips, the five cardinal lines and directions of force: the arms, legs and spine - to help you move with less effort and more fluidity.

In the process of exploring this image, you will find ways to organize your center - the spine, abdomen and chest - to enhance the movement of your limbs.
