BADFA: Breath and Diaphragms; A Feldenkrais Approach
BADFA June 15-18, 2023 Tallahassee, Florida



The Feldenkrais Method® is a unique and sophisticated approach to human development, learning, and movement. Invented by Moshe Feldenkrais, an Israeli physicist and martial artist, the Method is internationally known for its ability to improve areas of human function such as posture, flexibility, and self image.

Through the fascinating movement explorations of the Feldenkrais Method© and related hands-on techniques, we will explore the breath, as well as soft tissue structures such as the diaphragms and sphincters. Many of our life processes, in one way or other, are dependent upon these structures for optimal function.

By releasing restrictions in the breathing mechanism, numerous muscular tensions in the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar areas are relieved, and unbalanced tensions are removed from the craniosacral system. The respiratory diaphragm is believed by some to be an accessory pump to the heart, due to its pumping action on the vena cava. By relieving imbalances in the diaphragms and sphincters, visceral function is enhanced.

These activities will be useful for self-care. We will also practice hands-on applications to complement craniosacral and visceral manipulation.
