June/July mini workshops SmartMoves

  

Elegantly walking for health     

10 -11.30 

6/12 Functional feet, ankles and hip joints   $15

Feet are fabulous and if they are happy all the many joints have space to move. They are working harmoniously with the knees and hip joints.  We learn in this class to clarify the relationship so we keep the joints strong and resilient.

 

10-11.30

6/26 Functional neck and carriage of the head $15

if the head is aligned well, our sense organs can function better and lead our spine and decisions in the best way possible.

 

9:30-11:30am (2 hrs) $25

7/10 3-D functional pelvis- the pelvis has 2 sides consistent of many bones. There are beautiful relationships to be explored between the hip joints, sacrum, pubic bone and the femur, between the psoas, stomach and back muscles as well as the glutes. Let's add the pelvic floor to our exploration and have the pelvic be the powerhouse that gives us grounding, health, life, potency and pleasure.

 

9:30-11.45  (2,25 hrs) $27

7/17 A healthy functional  walk is an elegant walk

Here we explore how walking consists of an intriguing spiral pattern and a lot of circular action within it.

As humans we carry our center of gravity much higher than any animal. That gives us a lot of advantages, when we know how to use and stabilize it dynamically.   

 

Cost of all sessions $65 (instead of 82)

Elegantly walking for health all

4 classes

Learn to walk with ease, realign your posture and increase your overall health. Good posture comes not from muscular effort but from the optimal use of the skeleton. Good posture makes you look and feel healthy, poised and potent. The Maasai tribe in Africa is known for its elegant, long, erect posture. They can walk for many miles without tiring, keeping their ease and bounce. The beauty of their posture is its ease, without taking their shoulders back or tucking their tummies in. Their uprightness comes from a clear inner skeletal alignment where muscles are free to move without holding unnecessary tension. We will learn this practice with the Feldenkrais®/Smart Moves techniques.

Posture often is misunderstood and is artificially forced and unbalanced. People do the best they know how,  but have often a wrong notion. The resulting poor posture can adversely affect eyesight, thinking, mood, bones, joints and ligaments and the optimal functioning of organs. A healthy, functioning spine promotes whole body wellness, with accompanying benefits to our emotional wellbeing and our ability to think clearly.

This workshop is appropriate for all ages. The Feldenkrais movements will be done lying down, sitting and walking, always adapted to individual abilities. Fit people without injuries will learn to be more efficient, while others will learn to enhance their health and overcome their injuries, as Dr Feldenkrais did himself.
