Feldenkrais in Sitting: Ready For a 20-Minute Feldenkrais Break?

Are you integrating Feldenkrais sessions into your daily life? Would you like to take 20 minutes and do so now with a session in sitting?

I have recently re-recorded and updated the sessions from my “Eliminate Back Pain While You Sit” series and added an extra session based on the famous “Errol Flynn” lesson from the Esalen Workshop. Theses are simple, but crucial Feldenkrais sessions, great for the beginner and advanced student alike.

There are 5 sessions in total. They are all done while sitting and they are GREAT at eliminating and preventing back pain and strain. They will also help you sit more comfortably and increase your concentration while working…these session are especially wonderful if you spend any length of time working at a desk…

This downloadable Feldenkrais mp3 series includes:

  • Integrated Turning, Right and Left (If you teach this a great demo session)
  • Opening and Folding (Wonderful if you tend to “slouch” or lean forward at your desk)
  • Bending to the Side (Yummy! Will make you relax….)
  • Full Body Integration (Combines all 3 session above with some unique variations)
  • Shoulder Rotation in Sitting (The “Eroll Flynn” from Esalen and elsewhere. Awesome lesson)

Download all sessions right now, including FREE transcripts of the sessions (great if you are practitioner, saves you a ton of time preparing to teach). All the sessions are under 30 minutes and can be done during lunch or a break, while at work, or in your home office…or wherever you can sit and move comfortably for a bit…

A Couple of Five Star Reviews For “Feldenkrais Classics”

Ryan Nagy, Feldenkrais Classics, Volume 2

Ryan Nagy, Feldenkrais Classics, Volume 2

“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.

Available Now: Feldenkrais Classics Volume 2

Ryan Nagy, Feldenkrais Classics, Volume 2

They say that sometimes you eat the bear, and sometimes the bear eats you…but this time, I seem to have eaten the bear! Earlier today, I posted that in several days I would be ready to release Volume 2 of my “Feldenkrais Classics” series but I was able to get it all pulled together much quickly than I anticipated. Uhm…that rarely happens, but I won’t complain.

I have had both a great deal of fun and exasperation pulling these sessions together. The exasperation was related to construction that was done about two blocks away from me, leading to a re-routing of several hundred buses to pass directly in front of my house everyday…for more than two weeks! It was almost impossible to record.

And then there are the various things that can make Feldenkrais-based sessions so challenging (to me at least) such as occasional changes in sleep and emotions and thinking when recording, editing and experiencing complex Feldenkrais sessions. And I am a firm believer in the “non-habitual non-habitual” which means doing Feldenkrais sessions in a variety of unique environments such as late at night, in the early morning, in bed, and occasionally trying on pieces in public such as at a coffee shop or restaurant. That is not to say that I have been on the floor doing sessions in public, but people do look at me strangely when I take off my shoes, hold a foot and pass the knee inside and outside my arm. Somehow I seemed to do more of that than usual when pulling together these particular sessions. Have you ever tried non-habitual Feldenkrais? Sounds paradoxical? It’s not. There are patterns within patterns within patterns that we can play with. For me it has been life-changing and hope that it continues to be so. And not just for Ryan.

It may take a while to get these on iTunes and Amazon as I have some issues to work out on the CD cover. But you can purchase the full series from me, right now. Including:

1. A brief 5-minute introduction

2. Rhythmic Tapping

3. Lifting on The Stomach

4. Rotating Your Spine Through Your Legs

5. Differentiating Your Hip Joint.

6. Four Points Classic or Four Points of Support on Your Hands and Feet

7. Crawling” as in Crawling on Your Hands and Knees.

Enjoy!

Please note: You CAN do these sessions even if you have not yet done Volume 1.

I stand behind what I sell. If you are not satisfied with the material, you will get your money back – no questions asked.
* I have not done transcripts with this volume. Quite frankly, creating them for the last version was an ungodly amount of work and I am not quite ready to pay to have someone create them for me just yet. I will likely have someone create transcripts of these sessions in several months, though I cannot guarantee it. Will let you know.

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?

Feldenkrais and TMJ: The Mayo Clinic Gets It Wrong.

About 30 minutes ago, I read a statement on the Mayo Clinic website that noted:

“Severe TMJ disorders may need to be treated with dental or surgical interventions.” (From: Mayo Clinic)

That’s a simple statement that few would take issue with. And it seems to meet the unconscious expectations that many of us have, such as “Long term pain in body means surgery may be necessary.” As I have written previously on this blog, there is a great deal of research to suggest that pain symptoms do not always have a structural cause and it has been demonstrated that many people with defined “causes” do not necessarily have pain symptoms (See: Think Your Pain Symptoms Are Caused By a Structural Problem?)

However, the Mayo Clinic’s assertions are somewhat shocking because in the case of TMJ problems, there isn’t any reliable evidence that surgery or dental implants work for TMJ pain. Research organizations such as the NIH have repeatedly stressed that there is little evidence supporting surgery. For example,

“There have been no long-term clinical trials to study the safety and effectiveness of surgical treatments for TMJ disorders. Nor are there standards to identify people who would most likely benefit from surgery.” (From: NIH)

If you want more detail, I did a post about TMJ and Dental devices on my blog that promotes my Feldenkrais TMJ program. For those of you who do Feldenkrais-related work or are interested in doing so, using Feldenkrais for TMJ meets all of the suggested requirements put out by the NIH and NIDCR. Namely, that treatments should be

1) Conservative and reversible

2) Customized to a client’s special needs.

And treatments that can cause permanent changes in the bite or jaw should be avoided.

Even more to the point: “Simple self-care practices such as relaxation techniques, stress reduction, and biofeedback are often effective in easing TMJ symptoms.”




Happy NEW YEAR and…

New Year’s is a great time to do a psychological “scan” and take note of where we are, what we’ve done and where we are going. Someone once said, “If you know what you are doing, you can do what you want.”

But what are we scanning for? Many possibilities, but let’s start with productivity and growth of our businesses and practices. Have you ever read that short quote about business attributed to Steve Job of Apple? It’s very short:


“Real Artists Ship.”

It has a very succinct and clear meaning for those in the software industry. Producing stuff that is amazing, elegant and cutting edge is important. Yes, yes, yes.

But it is infinitely more important to actually produce something that works and get it to users; to ship it. Get it out the door. Have a success or failure in the real world. It works much better than having one in your head.


Of course, you can do that and do it gently and effectively. Or as Moshe said tens of thousands of times in his life:


“Make it light, simple, and without force.”

That’s not just about movement.


Your Results for 2010

For a moment, take note of your successes, no matter how small:

 

“What’s one positive thought I have about my results in 2010?”

 

“What is one thing about that makes me happy about what I have done in 2010?”

Got that? It could be useful to make a mental note of that or write it down.

Now, think about what you want.

If you are working on a project right now or want to be…whether it’s a new mp3 product or your first, your next ATM workshop or your first, getting more students or starting a blog and doing more effective marketing, pick a question below and ask it to yourself everyday for the next few days:

 

“What small step can I take today that would move me closer to that goal?”

 

“If I were 100% certain that I was going to achieve that goal what would I be doing differently today?”

 

You can build on those answers. Take a moment and note them. Again, you may want to write them down and put them someplace where you will remember them. (Ask enough times and you will remember automatically).

See you next year!!


Be Fruitful And Multiply

“If ye have faith as a simple mp3, ye shall say unto this CD, “Convert into digital format and move hence to yonder place.” And it shall move. And nothing shall be impossible to you.” – Moshe Feldenkrais, Sermon on Making the Impossible Possible.

It’s happened twice in the last 24 hours and probably 12 times in last year. I navigate to a Feldenkrais Practitoner’s website. They have a cool product idea. I’m interested. I read the description and decide to buy it. And then I see:

“Email me and I will tell you the price.”

“CD only $49.95″

“Blah blah blah.”

My response?

“Oh ye of little faith! If the internet can sell thy CD’s, then it can also sell thy mp3′s, clothe thy children and to morrow go viral on Facebook. How much more will thy ATMS give sustenance to your practice and nourish your soul?”

Or in the common vernacular:

1) A person needs to be able to purchase your products immediately and without waiting. Ever heard of iTunes? Think: “Without hesitation and preparation.”

2) There are a huge number of people in the world who don’t buy CD’s. How many people do you see at the Gym with CD players now?

3) Selling only physical products limits your potential reach by about 10 billion people. You think someone in China, India, Brazil or New Zealand is going to buy your CD’s, pay $$$ for postage and then wait 4 weeks for them to arrive? Hell no. “Make the impossible possible.”

However, if your CD’s are sold as mp3′s and a person can buy them instantly – regardless of where they live – and have them on their computer or iPod in seconds…what do you think will happen to your sales?

So shall it be done.

You don’t know how to convert CD’s to digital audio?

You can learn. It’s free. Get a free copy of iTunes for your Mac or PC. Insert your CD. Find the “import” command. iTunes will convert your file to digital and import it.

You don’t know how to sell audio online?

You can learn. It’s free. Get a free 67-day trial to E-Junkie. You don’t even need a credit card. Nor do you need a credit card nor merchant account to accept money. View my free E-Junkie videos and learn how to sell your products. If you can cut and paste, you can use E-Junkie.

You don’t have any products?

Create some. It’s free. If you have a computer you can create an eBook using OpenOffice. If you have a Mac you probably already have built in microphones that allow you to record. Most PC’s have them too.

You don’t need an extra $100 to $500 per month selling Feldenkrais mp3′s?

I don’t believe you. But if it’s true, create some products, sell them and give the money to charity. Better yet, give them away for free. Saving people that you have never met from getting back surgery, carpal tunnel surgery or living a crappy life builds good karma. And self-esteem.

And remember Moshe’s words: “Convert. And go forth.”



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
