breathe and calm

Once you have a sense of these movements, you can do them in your own time, or listen to the recordings again if you wish.

There is no magic amount of time spent. The most important thing is the quality of your awareness. Giving yourself the gift of kind attention is already a significant reset of your nervous system.

Use these sequences to feel calmer as you access the parasympathetic phase of the autonomic nervous system.

Good for:

  • anxiety

  • stress

  • low back tension

  • posture

  • digestion

  • sleeping

Clenching the fists, tensing the eyebrows, and tightening the jaw are expressions of impotent effort. It is possible to succeed in spite of these faults only at the expense of truly healthy joy of living. Learning must be undertaken and is really profitable when the whole frame is held in a state where smiling can turn into laughter without interference, naturally, spontaneously.
— Moshe Feldenkrais, The Potent Self
