The History and Mystery of Movement

July 13, 2010

We as human beings hold the history of movement in our bodies. Most of us learn to move well enough to get our needs met but never go further to discover the depth of our capabilities. My Feldenkrais® trainer, Frank Wildman is one person who wasn’t content with good enough and has spent his life tapping into movement potential in himself and his students. The following two video clips take you on a journey through the evolution of movement from one celled animals to human beings. Each separate movement in this piece we learned in a series of Awareness Through Movement® lessons during one segment of our 4 year training program. My ability to do these movements probably got to the “good enough” stage; Frank is definitely the master. Take it away, Frank!
