Refine the use of your feet and hip joints to form a reliable foundation for movement on and off the mat.
A workshop with Dan Rindler, Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner

Shambhala Yoga and Dance Studio, 367 St Marks Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11238

The organization of your feet and legs for support is a major factor in determining your ability to move with efficiency, ease and power.  Learn guided movement exercises which explore moving in and out of unusual variations of bridge and wheel poses, to refine our ability to access support and strength from the ground up.  The principles explored can help you fine-tune your movement on and off the mat.  This workshop is open to all abilities including those with injuries or other limitations. What will you do with the new possibilities?

 

For those new to Feldenkrais:  You can do this!  The seemingly simple, slow mindful exercises of Feldenkrais method are accessible to all, including those in chronic pain.  The “exercises” are not exercise in the traditional sense.  Rather, they are unique explorations, almost movement-puzzles, which combine an understanding of body mechanics with a highly effective approach to learning to shift out of long-held habits of movement and behavior. This gentle approach will lead you to learn new patterns of coordination, improved posture, balance, and reduced strain whether you are athletic or feel unable to take most movement classes.
