Solutions for Optimal Mobility
Self-Care Strategies for Individual Nero-motor  Limitations
 

The Solutions program provides a broad variety of movement procedures to resolve common issues people have with their functioning, like releasing lower back compression, refreshing articulation of upper back vertebrae, aligning hip joints,  restoring ankles and knees'  springiness, as well as feet and toes' adjustability, freeing necks' ease,  building up wrists' tolerance to pressure and  awakening resourcefulness for recovering balance and asymmetry difficulties.
 



In restoring harmony of well coordinated functioning, as nature meant, each specific problem is approached in the Solutions program through the Feldenkrais integrative perspective of dealing with the reciprocal interdependency between the specific suffering part, and its corresponding Bio-dynamic partners throughout the entire body network. Rather than imposing an unrelated right correction, of changing an isolated part, which seems unfit, the Solutions' instruction is leading the student to explore a few un used options of moving this part, with emphasize on the involvement of the corresponding interaction with the rest of the body. Reminding the organism the experience of supportive cooperation it spontaneously knows how to reset itself more sensibly. Setting harmonious integration between all body parts is a primal factor in natural movement, like you can see in animals moving in the wild. This is in distinct from a cultural task,
which may overuse and over intensify one part -- without proportionally adjusting it with the rest of the body correspondence.  


 

Teaching the solution procedures, like with any other teaching of the Movement Intelligence programs, is done through modality of verbal guidance. The verbal guidance is of particular value to learning. With no visual model to imitate for external evaluation, the verbal instruction is calling for awakening  the inward involvement of the student to appreciate his own sensations while performing the guided options,  taking the clews from himself, trusting his own sensory compass for searching authentic  solutions which better support life.
Going through this process of self modification, which is unlikely to be initiated by people on their own, empowers people to own the strategy for self correction, and enhances their clarity in mastering the functional roadmap to their solution on their own.  





As in all Movement Intelligence programs the Solution strategies are designed with the intention to provide people with independent tools for their autonomous recall and self use.


 

Teachers and Trainers give their students not just knowledge. But guiding  them to sense through their body the actual experience of restoring movement freedom, which they themselves had previously experienced, in their own bodies, and to which they have added their own insights. Like a bee that collects raw nectar, and transforms it into honey, not before cultivating it throughout its own systems, the same Alchemy of intimate experiential learning takes place with their students.   The students too will have to process the fresh somatic information through their personal prism, adding to it their own discoveries and observations, before they can validate the learnt strategy and reap its results.  This lays the groundwork for a perpetual cycle of learning and teaching, whereby new students are verbally guided in ways that invite them, in turn, to re-process and re-invent the solutions in their own individual sensory way. This creative involvement is what inspires the enthusiasm of both receiving and passing on the accumulated experientially earned knowledge onto the next generation,
 

Witnessing learning students at the point of shifting their physical competence from a compromised attitude of a choice less victim into one of evidence-based hope, having  the roadmap to re-create this resolution on their own, is a privilege that gives both students and Mentors meaning to their lives.  
 

 
The extensive instruction provided in the Solutions for Optimal Mobility program qualifies the Personal Mentor graduates to teach this material to groups, as well as to  individuals, providing  their own students  with a perception and options of operational  ways to solve specific issues and restore gratifying movement .
  
To each of these problems, ​Ruthy Alon applies the Feldenkrais Method’s integrative approach to functioning; exploring the reciprocal relationship between the area of suffering and its network of responsive partners throughout the entire body. The result will be a re-adjusting of harmonious cooperation, so that the body can work as nature intended.
 



​The self care movement exploration processes empower participants to awaken their own, self-correcting intelligence, so that their organism can overcome its own functional failures with better options for more efficient, well coordinated action.
