The Feldenkrais Method® Developed by Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais, uses gentle movement and directed attention to help people learn new and more effective ways of living and moving. You can increase your ease and range of motion, improve your flexibility and coordination, and rediscover your innate capacity for graceful, efficient movement. Since how you move, is how you move through life, these improvements will often enhance your thinking, emotional regulation, and problem solving capabilities. The Feldenkrais Method is based on principles of physics, biomechanics, and an empirical understanding of learning and human development.
In this session we will explore the joy and layers of moving the pelvis. Exploring its shape and its motion. Discovering the hidden heavy bone, which is very present and meaningful in our body. Listening to its nuances and pathways. The pelvis connected to the motion of the legs and spine, where a lot of pressure can be found. When using gently its capacity, it can be a door for range of movement freedom and joy. We will be working individually and in couples, using touch, to understand the body in different ways.
Attention: exceptionally this bodywork session will last 3 hours instead of 2. Bring a bottle of water, a yoga mat and a blanket. This session will be given in English.
