Immerse Your Self
Here it is - an opportunity to immerse yourself in the beauty of the Okanagan Valley, AND in a deep somatic movement retreat. If you don’t already Love Naramata - You Will. And if you haven’t already experienced the power of a daily dose of Feldenkrais in a supportive environment - You Will.
I will offer the option of additional private lessons and craniosacral therapy in the afternoons or evenings.
We will cover the fundamental principles of the Feldenkrais approach and do two Awareness Through Movement ® lessons each day. We will progress to finish with a challenging movement sequence that will promote each participant to apply the ideas beyond the workshop (modifications are used to adapt to all abilities). Practically, this means making functional movements in fun and novel sequences. We always include floor work - for example: coming to sit and stand by rolling, exploring themes around walking, reaching and balancing – while taking time each day to focus briefly on anatomy and the healthy functioning of hips, shoulders, spine, knees and feet. Some working principles are:
● Applied mindfulness and self-reflection – through moving. ● Working with the novelty your brain needs to learn & adapt. ● Regaining posture that supports your health. ● Reclaiming your inner resilience and applying new tools for healthier movement. ● Verbally guided gentle movements anyone can do, to be applied in any context.
