A Workshop on the Physics of Parenting
Do you have mommy-thumb? How about chunkster-elbow, daddy-back or collicky-neck+shoulders? (Very real problems that are equally deserving of a name!) The way you pick up and hold your baby contributes to your discomfort or pain, and Feldenkrais Method can help.
Join me Friday morning January 25 at 10am (with your pre-crawling baby is fine if you don’t have childcare), for a workshop in the physics of parenting for reducing strain on your body with specific ideas about your hands/thumbs. (But also very applicable to those with back, shoulder and neck strain from parenting a baby or young child.) I will share movement exercises based on the Feldenkrais Method for learning efficient, comfortable use of your hands, and ways to pick up, hold and feed your baby with less strain. We will sing a few songs and play with the babies a bit throughout to make it fun for the little ones too.

Location: Brooklyn Feldenkrais, 480 6th Avenue, between 11th and 12th streets, Park Slope Brooklyn, 11215
