In this Feldenkrais®/SmartMoves Weekend Workshop on February 8 & 9, we learn to dwell in the Alpha state where we are most open to new learnings. Our nervous system gets the chance to reset.
In Saturday’s workshop, we will work with the subtle movements of tongue, eyes, jaw and breathing. The subtleness of movement – executed slowly, minimally and with full awareness – is the best way to undo a lot of chronic tension especially in face, neck and back. We use imagination and mind/body connection, enhancing our neuroplasticity.
The last lessons of Saturday’s workshop will be an easy rolling lesson that realigns the entire spine, shoulder girdle and hips and brings you into your center.
The world we live in is not subtle: we are pushing and ‘efforting’, sometimes for years without a break. That lifestyle costs us dearly. We deplete our adrenal glands’ contents and open the door to many illnesses. After a while we do not even know how to rest: we sink exhausted into bed and wake up exhausted. Added to our daily stress, we tend to push our bodies in sport, workout classes, dance or even in yoga, as we do not remember how to be subtle in inhabiting our bodies.
This workshop invites you to cultivate small, peaceful movement that is restorative and replenishing. As you develop greater awareness through movement, you can find new movement possibilities and experience ‘Aha!’ moments about yourself and life.
You won’t believe how much better you will feel by the end of this weekend of workshops! Sunday workshop. Both days are a perfect combination and are built to complement each other. If time does not permit you to do both, you may take them separately.
Students appreciate Eva’s sincere care for their health and excellence on every level. Her range of personal experience in various moving art forms and her understanding of the workings of the human body in motion are both vast.
