Perfectly Human

Is running an activity you enjoy on a daily basis or is it something you would only do in an emergency? Can you imagine yourself running, running with lightness and agility?

There is discussion whether we, as humans, were born to run or born to walk. Certainly the upright posture has given us the freedom to use our hands for manipulative tasks. In his book 'Born to Run' Chris McDougall references a theory about early hunters being persistence hunters. More of this in class.

This term's theme will encompass how our self-image may enhance or limit our activities. Using Feldenkrais movement lessons we will explore the possibility of feeling comfortable and powerful when running (or even imagining running).

The dynamics of personal action

Each one of us speaks, moves, thinks, and feels in a different way, each according to the image of himself that he has built up over the years. In order to change our mode of action we must change the image of ourselves that we carry within us.

Instinct, feeling, and thought being linked with movement, their role in the creation of the self-image reveals itself together with that of movement.
Moshe Feldenkrais

This term will bring to the foreground the act of running. Upfront I must tell you that I am not a runner! However, wearing my Vibram 5 fingers I feel I could run! Join me and let’s see what happens.

This series is suitable for running warriors and non-runners, and you will progress at your own pace. There is scope for you to bring your own questions too.

What is it to be human? Which activities are important to you? Do you love to run, swim, ride, dance or sing? Which activities sink your spirit? How could you guide and accept what happens in your life to approach even the necessary chores with more lightness and freshness?
