“Nothing is permanent about our behavior patterns except our belief that they are so.”
Moshé Feldenkrais

“In short, health is measured by the shock a person can take without his usual way of life being compromised”
Moshe Feldenkrais

“Once we come to see that one’s degree of self-control directly mirrors one’s self-image, we can understand why we find it so difficult to improve our bodily performance by focusing only on the learning of specific actions. Instead, we might well surmise that to improve one’s self-image so that it more nearly approximates reality will result in a general improvement in one’s bodily actions. And the results of such an improvement would be both quicker and more extensive than the results from any system of exercises that applies only to specific actions.”
Moshé Feldenkrais, Embodied Wisdom: The Collected Papers of Moshe Feldenkrais
