Feldenkrais – magical movement

Course code: 19001
Location: Brighton Courthouse
Day/time:  Thursday 9.30am Weekly
Starts: 7-Feb  Ends: 28-Nov

Feldenkrais is not a Gym workout, rather a mind/body exploration. Classes involve being guided through a planned sequence of easy, gentle movements that are designed to develop a greater self-awareness of HOW to move. Through observing one’s movements, one can explore and learn more easily, and more comfortable and efficient ways of moving in everyday activities. This improves one’s health and wellbeing. Lessons are taught in a range of positions: lying/sitting on the floor, sitting in a chair or standing. Some tips for the classes: Move gently – don’t strain. Avoid effort and discomfort. Move slowly – so one can sense, observe, feel.  Rest often. Learn & enjoy.

Prerequisites: Need to be able to get up and down from lying on the floor. Bring a yoga mat and a large towel. Wear loose comfortable clothing such as a track suit.
