A Couple of Five Star Reviews For “Feldenkrais Classics”

“His Voice and Tone Is Just Right To Push You On To Wellness”

I just saw that someone posted a 5-star review on Amazon and Apple iTunes for Volume 2 of my “Feldenkrais Classics Series.” As a little hint, you can buy them from those two companies or You can get Volume 1 for free on my online store with ANY purchase.

“I actually purchased this on iTunes before I saw it here. This is amazing. For years years I have had a shoulder/neck stiffness. Last year it got so bad it went down my right arm with constant pain. I also developed ( oddly to me) archillis tendentious on the left side. Dr. seen nothing and sent me off to PT. Some help, but no permenant cure. With the first session (of Feldenkrais Classics) I got relief.

It may take someone else more time, but, here is a gentle program to correct your body balance. You can’t force it, you can’t pick it up from a book (I tried that) but here is someone talking you through it. It takes lying on the floor and gently doing some moves. One other note, I have been doing exercises before this ( like everybody does after the holiday pig outs) and there is no way to do them right without getting balance. You are just developing the muscles that got you twisted if you do. Like pull-up chin-ups, one shoulder came forward more, one arm way stronger, one wrist twisted, even a little counts. After doing the Nagy sessions, it’s plain to me twisting my dominant right side caused all this, plus even set off the left side ankle archillis tendentious. Get the download, it will change your life. As a bonus, his voice and tone is just right to push you on to wellness. (Link To Amazon Review)

And from iTunes:

This is amazing! It will gently correct and release your body. If you have joint pains, frozen shoulder, jaw pain, etc. this will be a Godsend. If you exercise, have a sport you want to be excellent in, you need this to develop a balanced body. For whatever you need this (and believe me, we all need it) this will be the best $9.99 you ever spent. You will feel a difference from the first session.

Thanks for listening! These are not reviews that I asked for or paid for, nor do I know the person who wrote them, they were (as far as I can tell) completely spontaneous.

I have recorded a CD of Feldenkrais sessions in sitting and have also planned Feldenkrais Classics, Volume 3, but have to put them off for a bit…stay posted for details and updates.

Feldenkrais MP3 Store: A New Look And A Major Discount

Feldenkrais mp3's compatible with all playersI’ve recently started updating my html and programming skills by working with a “local” expat programmer here in Mexico. It’s been a great deal of fun having immediate access to someone who likes to teach and knows a great deal more than I do about programming. If I stay in Mexico long enough, I may start inviting some Feldenkrais practitioners down here for a similar type of immersion.

In the meantime, I’d like to introduce you the new look of my mp3 store and website that came about through my collaboration: Feldenkrais mp3 store. If you find anything that you would like to purchase, use the discount code “2012” when you checkout for 30% off of whatever you order. I rarely discount my prices, so take advantage of this deal before it expires. I won’t do another for a year or more: Feldenkrais Downloads.

By the way – Let me know what you think of the new design?

Jesus Cured My TMJ Pain (Using Feldenkrais and Somatic Visualization)

TMJ Muscles and JointsGetting ready to move to Isla Mujeres, Mexico (in less than 10 days!) and decided to take some time to create and release a new product: “Eliminate TMJ Pain Now.

I tend to create products that arise from my own needs and this one is no exception. I had TMJ symptoms on and off for many years. I’m sure it was completely physical, due to poor self-use, and had nothing to do with constantly being angry and vengeful and having the desire to set fires and blow things up. That’s what I tell myself. Though I’m sorry to say that I STILL find myself clenching my jaw and tongue at times, it usually only happens when I read the FeldyForum or when someone sneaks up behind me and says, “FGNA” or “Service Marks.” But I am working on it. One day at a time.

FGNA jaw clenching aside, I never have TMJ pain anymore and the processes embedded with my Eliminate TMJ Pain series have helped tremendously. In fact, the processes used meet the requirements of both the National Institute of Health (NIH) and the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research who are adamant that conservative and reversible treatments for TMJ should precede surgery or other invasive techniques. For those of you interested in buying the series, type in the discount code “blog” for a 30% discount on it or any other product that I sell. All of my Feldenkrais products, including the Eliminate TMJ series, can be found on my Feldenkrais mp3 store.

***Please note the “practitioner version” that I created which has transcripts of the sessions. You can use them as a starting point to create your own workshops and products. If you do, don’t bother to credit me. Just tell people that the sessions came to you in a dream. Preferably a dream that mentions a burning bush and some stone tablets. People love that kind of stuff and you will likely sell a great deal. In fact, may I be so bold as to name your new product? Try one of these:

“God’s Pain-Free Purpose for Your Mouth”
“Holy Rollers: Tongue and Jaw Circles For A More Spiritual You”

Don’t forget to trademark your terms and sue the shit out of anyone who tries to use them.

Be well – Ryan

Moshe Feldenkrais at Rotterdam (1977)

 

I recently purchased an mp3 CD that contains over 13 hours of lectures and Awareness Through Movement by Moshe Feldenkrais. The material was taught in Rotterdam, Netherlands, 1976. True to the understated (one could say boring) marketing style of the International Feldenkrais Federation, the lessons are described thus:

Volume 1: Moshe Feldenkrais in Rotterdam 1976 (MP3 audio files). In this workshop Dr. Feldenkrais teaches seven classic lessons that range from simple to challenging.” (snooze).

Seven classic lessons my ass! The mp3’s are vintage Moshe. From the very first moment he dives right in as only he can do – speaking to experiential learning, health, awareness, the relationship between structure and function – the primacy of movement for functions of life. Hmmm!! If you are interested in Moshe’s work, grab this product and geek out. You will be glad that you did. After listening to the first two hours, I have been experiencing myself and the work much more deeply.

Luckily, I found about the CD’s and bought them based on the basis of recommendations of several people in the community, not from the IFF’s description above. Who recommended the sessions to me? I can’t tell you lest I be accused of something. Normally I don’t mind. But today, I am not in the mood. Let’s just say that it was Che Guevara. On a motorcycle trip around the world, he became aware of the suffering of Feldenkrais practitioners. He is one his way to Portland to start a revolution. He is armed.

Unfortunately, the sound quality on the CD is not that great, there is a bit of echo here and there and some “tinny” sounds. And for a guy like me with tinnitus, it can be damn annoying at times. I already have enough ringing in my ears from the meth-induced abuse to myself that I did in the 80’s. But even so, I can tell you that after the first two sessions I am completely hooked. Come to think of it I got hooked on meth just as easily.

By the way: According to the IFF the products on the website are only “for the exclusive use of persons who have graduated from, or are currently enrolled in, a professional Feldenkrais training program.” Yea, whatever. Just between you and I, the IFF has no way of verifying if you are or are not in a training or have graduated from one. So do yourself a favor – if you want them just order them.

And don’t worry – Moshe wants you to have these sessions. He told me. I swear. In fact, in a dream last night Moshe told me, “Ryan, thou art my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.” I was a bit scared when he told me that. Sensing my fear, he gently rolled my head. I breathed deeply. The master had touched me! And I will never forget what Moshe told me next. It was so weird. He said,

You will go to the Dagobah system. There you will learn from Yoda, the Jedi Master who instructed me.

My eyes opened wide. I wanted to speak, but he waved me off impatiently and said:

Oi! Don’t be idiotic!! Listen to the Rotterdam mp3’s first.

Moshe Feldenkrais at Rotterdam

Update: April, 2013. I do not think you can buy the Rotterdam sessions unless you are a Feldenkrais Practitioner. Give me some time and I will see if I can figure out a way for you to steal them or obtain them illegally.

Chava and Ruthy Podcasts

I am slowly working my way towards podcasts with Chava Chelhav of Child’Space fame and (I hope) Ruthy Alon, creator of Bones for Life. More than just students of Moshe Feldenkras, Chava Chelhav and Ruthy Alon are thinkers and innovators in their own right and I am looking forward to speaking with each.

The hold up, as usual, is my own schedule and the multitude of projects that I am working on. Check back for more details.
   

Feldenkrais Mp3’s: 50% Discount

For the first time ever, I am discounting the mp3 downloads from my Feldenkrais store (a full 50% until 11/30). I am doing this for several reasons.

First, sales have been down the last few months, and I want to get them back up again. Second, there are still many Feldenkrais practitioners, students, and aficionados who have not learned how simple and easy it is to purchase and use downloads. Third – and most importantly – as technology continues to change and as people continue to want greater access to materials, the demand for instantly accessible mp3’s and transcripts and other products is only going to increase. Learn about them, so you can continue to evolve YOUR method and practice.

The discount code is “PEACE” and it takes 50% of at checkout. You can pay with any major credit card via GoogleCheckout or Paypal. The process is as “safe as kittens.” Both services use SSL which is military-grade data enrcyption, meaning all of your sensitive data is encoded. And I never have access to the info, I only get your name and email address. (Expired)

Try it out: Feldenkrais mp3 Downloads.
