Perfect as an introduction to this somatic, mind-body method of developing your movement intelligence and to remind yourself what free-er movement could feel like.

When worries weigh you down, routine tasks fix you to the spot or pain restricts you, then free movement feels elusive. Feldenkrais can bring improved movement, functionality and awareness through gentle guided movements.

We will do 3 Awareness Through Movement lessons:

  •  finding a long, mobile spine from top to tail 

  • making more space for breathing with a pliable rib cage and belly that expands

  • standing tall over your legs, through smooth synchrony of low back, pelvis and hip joints

In Feldenkrais, we use minimum effort and maximum curiosity to:

  • let go of tension

  • move with ease & skill - for daily activities, sport and performance

  • move with more comfort, when recovering from pain & restriction

  • practise mindfulness in motion

  • find calm

We will work in different positions on mats on the floor and you will be guided through movement explorations. The teacher will help everyone be comfortable and answer questions about the method and why it works to improve mobility. I can prepare accessible variations if you let me know in advance of any difficulties.

This workshop will give you an unhurried way to explore this practical and effective movement method. You will be given handouts so you can play with some of the lessons at home.
