Common types of musician injuries
"Movement is life. Life is a process. Improve the quality of the process and you improve the quality of life itself."
- Dr. Moshé Pinhas Feldenkrais
"What I'm after isn't flexible bodies, but flexible brains. What I'm after is to restore each person to their human dignity."
"..make the impossible possible, the possible easy, and the easy elegant."
"I believe that the unity of mind and body is an objective reality. They are not just parts somehow related to each other, but an inseparable whole while functioning. A brain without a body could not think..."
"...self-knowledge through awareness is the goal of reeducation. As we become aware of what we are doing in fact, and not what we say or think we are doing, the way to improvement is wide open to us."
"Find your true weakness and surrender to it. Therein lies the path to genius. Most people spend their lives using their strengths to overcome or cover up their weaknesses. Those few who use their strengths to incorporate their weaknesses, who don't divide themselves, those people are very rare. In any generation there are a few and they lead their generation."
