What does creativity have to do with movement habits?
Before I start discussing this topic, let's look at definition of the words "creativity" and "habit"
Creativity: "The ability to make new things or think of new ideas." (merriam-webster.com)
Habit: "A usual way of behaving; something that a person does often in a regular and repeated way." (merriam-webster.com)
Do you see any relationships between two words? I define creativity as the ability to do something you already know in a different way. When it comes to movement, there are infinite ways of moving and many ways to get to the same point. Movement habits "hide" all other possibilities and make them invisible as if such movement options don't exist. Therefore, we repeat the same movement patterns over and over, which could potentially create some problems. Creativity in relation to movement habits is about finding all those "hidden" movement options. The process of finding new ways of moving will require you to get out of your habitual way of moving, sensing, feeling, and thinking, or you will not find them.
Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement lessons are precisely structured to help you discover new ways of moving, sensing, feeling, and thinking. As a result of this process, you will become more creative and will be ably to act more freely.
