highly sensitive people

Feldenkrais is not just pushing muscles around, but changing things in the brain itself.
— Karl Pribram, M.D., neuroscientist

We all get jarred at times, some of us more than others. Are you are deeply affected by the environment around you—sights, sounds, crowds, light and space, or the moods of others? Are you easily overwhelmed or drained by noisy or stressful situations? There is nothing wrong with you. You are one of the 20% of people who is likely highly sensitive, which is a physiological state of high arousal or discomfort when faced with certain stimuli and not a personality trait. Highly sensitive people can be shy or gregarious. It's a category of experience, not of personality. 

This amazing lesson series uses gentle movement and directed awareness to tune into and honor the deep body-sense of yourself. With more tools to manage over-stimulation, less of your energy goes to coping with restrictions and more of it is free for living. Learn to listen when your nervous system is overwhelmed. Note: The physiology of the Highly Sensitive Person is based on the work of Dr. Elaine Aron.
