'Baby Liv' Demonstrates Feldenkrais 

Bookmark and Share

If you’re a student of movement, a parent or just baby crazy, you’ll love this video montage of baby Liv as she learns how to use her body. Without even realizing it, you’ve also just watched what you would do in a Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement Lesson. The video is part of The Next 25 Years, a video project that aims to demonstrate and explain the Feldenkrais Method in a simple, effective way. Moshe Feldenkrais, like Joseph Pilates, studied how babies develop and move and used those observations as a foundation for his method.

Even more so than Pilates, Feldenkrais is difficult to explain to the uninitiated, and it suffers from a “strange” name. Irene Gutteridge, producer of The Next 25 Years and a Feldenkrais practitioner in British Columbia, Canada, is trying to make it more accessible and bring more recognition to the method. If Baby Liv’s video is any indication, she may succeed. It’s been on YouTube for just over two weeks and already has over 10,000 views. We’ll be keeping our eye on this project - maybe she can take on Pilates next?

Nice video! The Feldenkrais method has intrigued me for quite a while but unfortunetly my life is too full already not only with Pilates but Kettlebells, body weight exercises along with my Muay-Thai and Jujitsu training. I simply do not see how I could find the time or space to incorporate it. It's a shame as I really would like to. I have known several instructors who have said taking up Feldenkrais really helped to give them a new perspective and awareness of practicing Pilates.

Those are their plans for 2012, Skiba said, but he hinted that 2013 could very well bring further changes. But Giants fans shouldn’t fear some wild University of Oregon-type ensemble; Skiba quickly added that the team will never forget how “iconic” its current look is.
