The Little Book of Falling (and Getting Up)

Lavinia Plonka

Prevent Injury and Recover Quickly From Gravity's Embrace

We all fall down, always when we least expect it, whether it's falling down on the job or falling down the stairs. Learn to prevent injury, overcome fear of falling and discover your inner resiliency. Practical lessons based on the Feldenkrais Method are a gentle and safe way to help you land softly and recover quickly from the shock of a fall. Statistics show that fear of falling actually increases the chances of falling: anxiety and tension affect balance and flexibility. You can overcome fear by developing strategies for movement that use the intelligence of your body in the moment of a fall. Each chapter looks at a different aspect of our relationship to falling; both the metaphorical and the physical. Simple movement explorations that you can do at home, some even on your bed then allow you to explore new ways of approaching the floor and getting up.
