We are recognized by our gait and the way we move.
Do you move the way you would like to move….on foot ? …..out of bed ? ….in your mind ?
In this series you will learn new movement possibilities as old self-images, habits and patterns are gently addressed to make way for the new. As a result, you will experience more well-being and youthful vitality!
Some of the benefits from these workshops:
– Standing in a taller, more dynamic and erect way
– Turning to reach with more ease
– Breathing more easily
– A more expressive face
– Greater ease in rolling over
– Fun and feeling younger!
Brigitte (Bebe) Kawakami was born in Austria, and grew up in a family where alpine hiking and downhill skiing were part of the physically active lifestyle. In 1976, Bebe came to the US, and eventually to Hawaii where she came to live and married a Hawaii born local.
Here in Hawaii, Brigitte was once hit by a car crossing the street and tossed in the air. She had back pains for over 25 years and tried Rolfing, chiropractic care, Pilates, yoga, and shiatsu massage…all helped, but only for a few days and the pain always came back.
Bebe discovered the Feldenkrais method with Eve Strauss in Honolulu and experienced relief. This led to further study and training with Jerry Karzen in Maui, and after practicing Feldenkrais for 8 months she was pain free. Her studies continued at the main Feldenkrais Institute in Vienna, Austria with Jeremy Krauss, Luci and Carl Ginsberg, and Miriam Pfeiffer, and she is now more agile than she was even as a child.
Bebe is a now a Guild Certified Feldenkrais ® teacher and is dedicated and passionate about the Feldenkrais method, and being a former kindergarten teacher, enjoys teaching ATM (Awareness Through Movement) lessons and One on One FI (Functional Integration) lessons.
