Breath and Core HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED TO SUNDAY NOVEMBER 25, 2018

$75 + GST - October 27, 2018 | 9:30 am - 12:30 PM

In The Feldenkrais Method®, reverse breathing is central  to - and often embedded in - the lessons themselves. Expanding the abdomen when you move or push or roll, is still counter to much of what we have been told about strengthening our core. In this workshop will explore a variety of breathing approaches and combine them all to support healthy  options in moving.

VENUE TBA

 

The Great Hip Workshop

$75 + GST - November 24, 2018 | 9:30 am - 12:30 PM

Like hubs, hips are designed to support, direct and power your movement. How they move is how you move. Your Hips are Great…and they are going to love this workshop. And this work is designed to make all your movement easier.

No need to be flexible, but you do need to be in good health and be ready to move in an entirely new way!

Shoulder Redemption

$75 + GST - January 24, 2019 | Time: TBA

Well organized, mobile shoulders give us the sense of strength, confidence & freedom in our movement.
How many people suffer with a 'bad' shoulder? Even in 'good' shoulders, the range of motion can slowly diminish through misuse or under-use. We will explore the mobility, connectivity and strength of your shoulders - as they relate to the movement of your ribs, spine and chest.

Arms & Hands - with Heart

Ribs Actually

$75 + GST - March 20, 2019 | 9:30 am - 12:30 PM

Neck, Jaw and Posture

$75 + GST - April 27, 2019 | 9:30 am - 12:30 PM

Consider the relationship between your jaw and the top vertebrae of your neck. The TMJ (jaw joints) are on either side of a critical balance point for your head (OA Junction). Many head and neck issues can be connected to jaw tension and poor alignment. Using The Feldenkrais Method ® , we can learn to improve alignment and function, while reducing or even eliminating pain and tension. Even better, we build and update 'maps' of awareness, which always move us in the direction of health and our best movement and performance.

Knees, Ankles & Feet

$75 + GST - May 25, 2019 | 9:30 am - 12:30 PM

Our feet are designed to thrive without the support of a shoe, and respond to uneven surfaces that provide a rich context for sensing and adapting. What's your Ankle IQ?  Consider the ankle savvy needed for squatting without effort. So much of natural human movement relies on articulate ankles and feet and spring-like knees, to create a lightness of step worth cultivating. We'll work in the direction of squatting to explore how knees and ankles work can together with more ease.  And finish with some specific foot movements that will leave you light on your feet and taller than when we started!

Eyes, Perception & Action

In this workshop, you will become aware of how habitual strain, and overuse of your eyes impacts your movement. Learn new options to radically shift the quality of your breathing, your movement and the overall state of your nervous system. Eyes are at the top of the sympathetic nervous system chain, and provide an access point creating profound change. Feldenkrais eye lessons make for a gentle entry point into making change at deep level.

Balance is a Verb

$75 + GST - COming 2019 

Balance is a process; something we do ... and do again with every step we take. Learn new tools to develop and improve balance in everything from walking, to yoga, to sports and beyond.  Cultivating balance does not eliminate risk or falls - but heralds the beginning of falling 'well' and getting up with confidence and resilience.
