Yoga, Feldenkrais & Movement Therapy

Principles of Learning – Lessons and Practical Applications of the Feldenkrais Method, Episode #1

In the following video, recorded at TEDx Talks, professor Dorit Aharanov talks about the issues of learning, finding and implementing new ideas and the challenges of research. She draws a parallel of learning with the Feldenkrais Method(R) – a way somatic learning – reaching goals, extracting potential and quantum computation – her specific field of research -, that is universally applicable to learning, adapting, problem solving (neat math puzzle included) and better overall function in general.

The principles extracted/ key steps to learning are:

  1. Start within your comfort zone and make it even more comfortable;
  2. Not too easy, not too hard: Pick an interesting challenge that is within your reach;
  3. Move away from your desired plan/goal and come back to it from a different  direction;
  4. Play with it, connect it to everything you know, make it your own!
