Embodied Learning: Focus on the Knees and Ankles, Volume II

By Elizabeth Beringer

This series was specifically designed as a continuation of the first Volume. The lessons continue to focus on the healthy functioning of the legs.


By Elizabeth Beringer

All of the lessons in this second volume are grounded in the logic of the first set and increasing in complexity. We do recommend prior experience with the Feldenkrais Method. In particular, we recommend beginning with Embodied Learning: Focus On Knees and Ankles, Volume I.

Play a Sample

Themes developed in this continuation from Volume 1 include: the ability to fully bend and straighten the knees, improving the ability to bear weight efficiently, comfortable standing and walking, and the importance of the feet for healthy knees and ankles. Improvement in the functioning of the legs is always achieved in the context of the efficient use of the whole self.

We strongly suggest starting with Embodied Learning: Focus on the Knees and Ankles Volume 1.
