** Feldenkrais movement therapy focuses on the unconscious movement patterns we bring to our riding that can interfere with the clearest usage of our bodies to make for smoother and more effective riding. It is very useful in correcting the placement of the pelvis in the saddle and the way the arms are held, to maximize comfort, and minimize soreness and pain, that could eventually lead to lower back and/or arm and shoulder problems. It uses gentle and interesting  movement ‘puzzles’ to reteach our brains how to know instantaneously, before we are in pain, how to adjust our bodies to the riding experience.
