Movement and perception are deeply intertwined. When we initiate an action, it most commonly starts with our eyes, which help to organize and focus our movement in space. By working with unconscious habits and tendencies of sight, our movement can be transformed. In a reciprocal way, working to improve movement patterns related to vision can inform and expand the use of the eyes. Most people unnecessarily limit the full use of their eyes. By working between perception and action participants can find new options for inhabiting, viewing and moving in the world.
Elizabeth Beringer has been involved with the practice and development of the Feldenkrais Method for more than 35 years and is one of the foremost Feldenkrais teachers and trainers. Full bio here.
