The Story of Sister Rosetta Tharpe

"The freedom that she expressed in her singing and dancing woke up the congregation. It focused them on something that was on the inside that they never gave expression to."

- Pastor Robert Hargrove describes Sister Rosetta Tharpe

This is also an apt description of Feldenkrais. It is a process that focuses you on something inside that you might not have ever given expression and like Sister Rosetta Tharpe it leads you to expressing that freedom to yourself and the world around you.

Here's a clip from a BBC documentary about her for inspiration.
