Your hip-pelvis-lower back connection is your powerhouse of locomotion. Free that area up, and just imagine how you will move again!
Gently opening the hip flexor (psoas) muscles in this workshop increases healthy mobility and prevents hip damage.The psoas muscle connects the legs to the lower back through the pelvis. The hip joints work on each side of the pelvis. Use these subtle Feldenkrais movement sequences to regain your range of motion, undoing hip and back tension and pain.
As you mindfully do these movements, you can sense your legs connecting into your hips, pelvis and torso, so that all parts work together for powerful, flexible movement!
This workshop will ensure your spine to stay healthy and/or help it to heal. If you have a twist in your spine (scoliosis) this workshop can teach you how to lengthen your spine in the right direction. In any case most neck, thoracic, and lumbar vertebrae will benefit and feel more mobile yet stable. You may be able to reduce headaches with these movements.
In the course of this workshop you learn to take your health into your own hands with easy and small movements. Instead of being adjusted or treated again and again by somebody else, you can now learn what it is that causes you discomfort, tension or effort, then learn how to avoid it. You learn to replace unconscious movement patterns with healthy ones that will make life easier and smoother.
