Intro to this series on Saturday, Mar 7. Attend Intro session & 3 Day Intensive for the special price of $125
We like to walk, and some like to dance, hike, run, swim, golf or surf. For all these activities we need a functional healthy spine and joints: ankles, hips and strong, yet flexible feet. With these playful Feldenkrais® movements we can accomplish just that!
This 3 day Feldenkrais® Intensive is an in depth immersion into the specialized theme that you don’t get in a single class. Better yet, you get to keep on learning and improving for 3 consecutive days: this makes changing harmful habits even more efficient. The different movement lessons within each workshop approach the theme from different angles, so that you will leave with a well-rounded experience and all parts of yourself will benefit.
The Feldenkrais Method®, which has been called ‘Lying Down Qigong’ by Qigong Master Yang Yang, is a very advanced approach to body-mind healing that uses awareness, learning and exact knowledge of brain and movement functioning. Students often notice a big change and improvement of their wellbeing right after the first workshop. The movements you learn can be repeated at home. Attending the whole series will give your system an even better chance to change old dysfunctional habits and learn new possibilities and improve in all areas of your life, not just physical.
Feet, Head and Neck Alignment – 6:30 – 8:45 pm on Friday, Mar 13
In this workshop we will do Awareness through Movement® lessons that will help you to undo neck tension. You learn about finding a better alignment and refined awareness to prevent reoccurring tension. We also will take a good look at our feet and their alignment so that when you take a step you can lengthen your neck and walk like a Queen or King!
Happy Ankles & Knees: Functional and Balanced – 2:00 – 5:15 pm on Saturday, Mar 14
You can prevent or reduce joint damage and pain in ankles, knees and neck. Precise movement coordination is of vital importance to prevent inflammation and to help your joints heal. Did you know that the wellness of your knees has something to do with how balanced you hold your head? Knees of course have to work in tandem with well functioning hip joints and ankles. These Feldenkrais® lessons will help you improve mobility and movement function. You also learn how to organize the spine and neck muscles so that the weight will be distributed more evenly over your knees!
Functional Hip joints, Flexible Pelvis and Strong Lower Back – 4:45 – 7:00 pm on Sunday, Mar 15
Learn to make better use of the powerhouse of your locomotion: your hip-pelvis-lower back connection. The hip joints are part of the pelvis. The psoas muscle connects the legs to the lower back through the pelvis. Opening the hip flexors in this workshop increases healthy mobility and prevents hip damage. These Feldenkrais® movements enable you to sense the connection of your legs into your pelvis and torso so that all parts work together for powerful, flexible movement!
We are going to refine our perception about HOW we walk, our awareness about the series of events that follow one another, joint by joint, and the different organizations that allow us to move forward as well as to the side, backward and up and down the hills. Your lower back will also benefit.
