July 13 course
Aug 10 course
Does being upright condemn us to a life of back pain?
Does staying upright in gravity have to be a constant struggle?
Are you condemned to poor posture by bad habits?
Posture can be improved, easily and painlessly, at any age. Using our uniquely human intelligence, we can align ourselves with gravity and move in ways that do not create pain.
In this class we will use the gentle explorations of the Feldenkrais Method® of Movement Education to develop flexibility, support, and self-awareness in the spine. We will also explore how flexibility and strength can compliment, not counteract each other. Instead of stretching and strengthening, we will use methods based on developmental learning and neurological reprogramming to effect change.
- Reduced neck, back, and shoulder pain and tension
- More attractive posture and movement
- Less vulnerability to injury
- Increased flexibility
- Enhanced sense of confidence
No massage technique is practiced: focus in on self-care, anatomy, and kinesiology. This qualifies for 6 “hands-on” CE units for Florida and NCBTMB, as part of the “Explorations in the Feldenkrais Method” series. There is no prerequisite.
Exercises will be done on a carpeted floor; students may wish to bring a mat or towel. Students should be able to lie on the floor and come to standing. There will be an hour for lunch.
