The Transformative Experience of Sitting on a Dynamic Chair

“Instability means risk but easy mobility”
Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais, The Elusive Obvious

Any Feldenkrais® lesson has, as a central element, balance and play with the dynamic equilibrium. The play between stability and instability are both biologically important. This series of lessons will explore this relationship using a unique base of support – a chair with an attached eccentric bicylinder. The design of the chair allows movement in any direction without hesitation – a concept that is central to the Feldenkrais Method®. Four Awareness Through Movement® lessons will be used to create a stimulating – and perhaps transformative – experience. Each one will be different so participants can register for all or any combination of the four.

Uwe Mester is a German Feldenkrais® practitioner living and working in Vermont since 2009. He is a 2005 graduate of Chava Shelhav's training program. He has over 15 years of experience as an educator (M.Ed.) and social worker (MSW).
