In order to facilitate walking and running the pelvis has to be mobile and strong. The strongest muscles are attached to the pelvis. In this workshop you learn how to use that power in a coordinated efficient movement and how to use your pelvic floor to be upright and relax your neck.
The pelvic floor is involved in many basic life functions as varied as digestion, elimination, reproduction and breathing. Improvement starts with awareness. The movement of the pelvic floor is subtle, and yet it is possible for all of us to feel its effect.. If you want to improve the function of the pelvic floor, you have to learn how to contract and relax all of it, in a balanced and more equal manner. This is what makes your pelvic floor healthier and stronger, using all parts coordinated with your whole body. From the pelvic floor we will move on to address the pelvis itself, plus the lumbar spine.
The Feldenkrais Method® is a very advanced approach of Body-Mind Integration and Healing that uses re-patterning through developing awareness and exact knowledge of brain and body co-functioning during movement. It shares many of the same principles and techniques with Qigong. These movements are simple and gentle and can be repeated at home once you learn them.

She came to the Feldenkrais Method® as a young professional dancer and it changed her understanding of brain, body, movement and therefore, herself forever.
