Your Beginning to Better Walking
We are delighted to welcome Raz Ori back to present a new Feldenkrais class series for improving and restoring the flexibility, agility, and comfort of your knees and the quality of your walking.
Our knees are the largest joints in our body and play a central role in our mobility, ease, and freedom of movement. They support our entire body's weight, in motion, with each step we take. They allow us to move forward and backward, as well as from side to side, safely and continuously. How? Our knees, ankles, hips, and spine work together as a finely-tuned synergistic system of springs. This is what gives us -simultaneously- fluidity and stability in movement.
However, some of our postural habits compromise the health and comfort of our knees. When we are not organized to use our knees effectively, excessive muscular effort, strain, increased wear and tear, pain, and instability can occur.
Feldenkrais lessons provide a safe and effective way to revive the dynamic, healthy use of your knee joints. The lessons presented in this series will improve circulation in the area around your knee joints and help you significantly improve your comfort, range of movement, and sense of stability and balance.
Raz Ori's teaching is clear, detailed, gentle, and educational. This series will help you to understand the functionality of your knees and give you a set of protective and restorative lessons that you can use for self-care.

Not only does my hip feel better, but my lower back feels better, my spine is more flexible, and my whole being feels freer."
