Marlene Finds Her Power Again

Marlene came to class with a big celebration.

She reported that after our previous Feldenkrais class, she found a sense of embodied empowerment she hadn't felt since she was a vibrant cheerleader at the age of 19 - six decades ago!

She described rediscovering this power as akin to finding the life restoration of Lazerous.

At 19, she had surgery for appendicitis that wasn't incorrectly completed. The surgeon incorrectly sowed parts of her abdomen to her diaphragm. Bad news. Even after a corrective surgery in her 30's to fix the problems from the first surgery, she still felts the effects of the compensations her body had made. She finds our Feldenkrais classes help her bring her mind and body back into sync.

Marlene's story is a great example that when we have the right process that guides us with curiosity into our own experience, we can become skilled at healing our compensations. When the compensations diminish and we feel more at home in our body, the vitality and power flow back in.
