Smart Moves Workshop for Motor Cortex Challenges – such as Parkinson’s, MS, CP with Eva Geueke
September 11, 2016 @ 5:15 pm - 6:45 pm$20
$20 each or $35 per couple.
This movement workshop is for those with motor cortex challenges and their caretakers. This introductory Feldenkrais workshop is an excellent follow-up John Pepper’s workshop on Parkinson’s the same afternoon. This introductory Feldenkrais workshop will be held sitting and walking. For those with motor cortex challenges and their caretakers, this workshop will be part practical and part informative. The FELDENKRAIS METHOD is one of the most effect ways to address nervous systems challenges. Feldenkrais is all about learning to pay attention to how we do something and then finding a different, more effective way to accomplish the task. We thus learn to refine and retrain movement through the neuroplasticity of the brain.
Nowadays we talk a lot about the brain’s neuroplasticity. The Feldenkrais Method is based on understanding how the brain can re-wire itself. Based on the brain’s superior ability to relearn, Feldenkrais successfully developed a method that was highly successful in helping people to regain mobility. In the 1930’s and 40’s, Dr. Feldenkrais understood what scientists such as Michael Merzenich, Esther Thelen, Norman Doidge and many others today are confirming with modern research.
