20% off for Golden Circle
Learn to walk in a way that will benefit your whole being and make your walking easy, elegant and efficient. Walking is a complex, 3-dimensional movement. Walking moves our whole self!
Addressing all the joints from the feet to the neck, the workshop benefits the entire spine. It also benefits the brain, as the 3-dimensionality of walking interrelates with our three dimensional thinking and spatial awareness.
Walking gives us the freedom to go where we want; walking badly brings us difficulty in life. Walking well is more than just getting from A to B. It is a feeling of freedom that we had as children, the ability to explore life as we want to explore it. Most people hope to be able to keep walking late into their lives.
Human beings are the only mammals that manage to regularly walk on two legs, and we need at least 8 to 9 months to accomplish that as babies! As adults, we can learn a lot about walking as a complex pattern of rotation, of side-bending and of balancing. When we know how to do it correctly, we are elegant and we keep our joints and even our organs healthy.
This workshop is for anybody who loves walking and wants to keep walking well. It’s also for people who already have difficulties walking and want to correct their walking patterns to prevent their joints from suffering more abuse.
Walking well can help in dancing, running and other sports. Walking and the use of the pelvis is the underlying pattern for many dance styles, from Salsa to Hula.
Come walk your walk… better than you’ve walked in a long time! You’ll feel great!
