Flexaware – awareness heals

Our modern world socializes us to forget the grace and efficiency of motion (not to mention stamina) we had as young children. Over time, this loss of ease of movement can lead to a host of physiological and mental ailments. Created by Steve Shafarman to help adults increase their awareness of and relearn these lost skills, Flexaware is a revolution in exercise, fitness, and healing inspired by the self-rehabilitation techniques of Israeli physicist Moshe Feldenkrais combined with insights gleaned from observing the way young children move and learn. Michael Ostrolenk interviews Mr. Shafarman in this podcast and they discuss the principles of Flexaware and its healing effect on physical problems like arthritis, chronic pain, and even asthma.
