The Feldenkrais Method of Somatic Education® is a process of self-improvement through sensory awareness, movement, and gentle manipulation. People benefit from Feldenkrais® who are looking to change a limiting aspect of their current condition and move towards more freedom, ease, and comfort. It’s based on decades of research in biomechanics, neuroscience, physics, martial arts, learning theory, and human development.
Gaga classes are predicated on a deep activation of the body and physical sensations. The instructions are deployed to increase awareness of and further amplify sensation, and rather than turning from one prompt to another, information is layered, building into a multi-sensory, physically challenging experience. Participants awaken numb areas, increase their awareness of habits, improve their efficiency of movement inside multilayered tasks, and are encouraged to connect to pleasure inside moments of effort. The research of Gaga is in a continual process of evolution, and the classes vary and develop accordingly.
Eve Boltax is a certified Feldenkrais® practitioner based in Jamaica Plain, MA. She has taught group Feldenkrais classes in living rooms and online; at the Jamaica Plain Brewery and Urbanity Dance’s Balance Studio; for the Boston University Tanglewood Institute; and curated a series at the Berklee College of Music in 2019. She started playing the violin at age 6 and discovered the Feldenkrais Method® when she was a graduate student at the Longy School of Music of Bard College. Her work has been described as “magical,” “bold,” “insightful,” “calming,” and “steadfast.”
