Feldenkrais lessons and classes

with Alessandro Bombardi PhD


    Spine Mobility

    Abstract: A reflection on the importance of allowing each vertebra to fully contribute to the motion of the spine and possible reasons preventing some vertebrae, in particular in the thoracic area, to contribute to the movement of the spine and get fixed in an habitual pattern as consequence of a fixed emotional response.

    I am still learning

    Abstract: Francisco Goya life and works are a testament to the idea of continuous learning from his initial formal work as court painter to the intense and intimate black paintings. Unfortunately, when it comes to basic human functions like vision, learning seemed to be limited to critical periods but is it really the case?

    Is muscular strength important in headstand?

    Abstract: Feldenkrais explored headstands as a controlled fall and was successful in teaching Ben Gurion, the first Israeli prime minister to perform it. Contrary to the myth of core strength, headstand is mostly related to the correct pelvis rotation and skeletal alignment.

    On Learning

    Abstract: Learning can be seen as creating associations to extract order from chaos. If the noise is too high it is very difficult to form reliable patterns allowing us to form functional motor patterns. The first task of a Feldenkrais practitioner is to reduce the noise level.

    The Polyvagal Theory

    Abstract: The polyvagal theory is emerging as new paradigm to understand the role of the vagus in affect regulation, post traumatic stress disorder, and is giving us a better understanding of the autonomic system. This novel understanding of the nervous system is essential to facilitate learning.

When we visited Utö, the most outer island of this beautiful archipelago in the place we call Finland, I allowed myself to be guided by the incredible energy of Inca, the daughter of the family we were visiting there. She took me to a series of abandoned bunkers from the times this island was a military strategic point and there I found this graffiti that represent very well the feeling of all that has to do with military, war, conflict and drama.
