The frequency of Feldenkrais exercises depends on several factors, including your goals, current physical condition, and available time. Here are a few guidelines to consider:
- For general maintenance: To maintain the benefits of the Feldenkrais Method, it’s recommended to practice at least once a week. This can be in the form of a group class, or by doing some exercises at home on your own.
- For specific goals: If you have specific physical or mental health goals, such as reducing pain or improving posture, you may benefit from practicing more frequently. In this case, practicing twice a week or more can be beneficial.
- For injury or pain management: If you have a specific injury or chronic pain, you may need to practice more frequently at first, and then taper off as your condition improves. Your practitioner may also recommend specific exercises to address your needs.
- As part of a holistic routine: The Feldenkrais Method can be a valuable complement to other forms of movement and physical therapy, such as yoga, Pilates, or physical therapy. In this case, the frequency of Feldenkrais exercises will depend on your overall routine and goals.
It’s important to listen to your body and make adjustments to your practice as needed. If you have any concerns or limitations, it’s best to consult with a Feldenkrais practitioner or healthcare provider.
