A Step Forwards

Me, putting one foot in front of the other and finding the support to my full length.

With each step we have the opportunity to access the inner resources to rise to our full height – supported and balanced. In this 8 week series, we will explore Feldenkrais based movement lessons that lead to improving the complex system of actions that form our walk. Refine and improve your movement and learn to walk with poise, balance and a quality of internal support which can form a foundation of resilience to help carry yourself through difficult times.

These classes are taught in a trauma-informed approach. This means:
1. You are in charge of choices for your body at all times during class, how to move and what to pay attention to.
2. You control the pace of your movement and your participation (or not) in class.
3. The class has a focus on finding inner-resources for feeling safe and grounded in one’s body.

“After a few sessions I began to feel like I was far more present in my body which meant I could feel my feet and so also felt more grounded. Both of these things helped to ease my anxiety which was quite high before the course.”

Tilt Your Kettle

This workshop takes the simple movement of tilting your pelvis (such as in the well known Cat/Cow yoga sequence) and puts it under the microscope — your own internal microscope actually. By spotlighting the movements of the pelvis in many different contexts, we will clarify our awareness of  individual asymmetries, and discover foundational habits of movement.

Next, we zoom our microscope lens out for a global view — looking at how these habits of movement which have remained unnoticed, influence abilities and limitations throughout your body.

6 Wednesdays.  430pm-530pm Eastern Time
June 24, July 1, 8, 15, 22, 29
Taught Online Using Zoom
This is a cumulative series, so drop-ins are not possible. All lessons will be recorded for review, or to be used in case of absence. Sliding Scale, $60 – 120

* Wondering about the kettle? It turns out almost no one, including google(!) is familiar with this expression which I’ve heard my cousin say for years (on his way to the bathroom!).
