Your hip-pelvis-lower back connection is your powerhouse of locomotion. Free that area up, and just imagine how you will move again!
In this three hour workshop we gently open the hip flexors to increase healthy mobility and prevent hip damage. The psoas muscles connect the legs to the lower back through the pelvis. The sacrum being centered between the hip joints, we balance the sacrum and lower back to prevent herniated discs and sciatica.
These subtle Feldenkrais sequences will help you to regain your range of motion, undoing hip and back tension and pain. As you move mindfully, you can sense your legs connecting into your hips, pelvis and torso, so that all parts work together for powerful, flexible and pain free movement!
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.
Who Benefits from the Feldenkrais® Method?
Everyone can benefit from the Method. The Feldenkrais Method helps those experiencing chronic or acute pain of the back, neck, shoulders, hips, legs, or knees, as well as healthy individuals who wish to enhance their movement abilities.
Feldenkrais has been very helpful in dealing with central nervous system conditions such as multiple sclerosis and stroke. Seniors enjoy using it to retain or regain their ability to move without strain or discomfort.
Musicians, actors, and artists can extend their abilities and enhance their creativity. Athletes and Dancers can refine their skills, improve their efficiency and keep their bodies healthy for the long haul.
