Feldenkrais Workshop in Edinburgh
Find freedom in your neck, shoulders and spine
Neck and shoulder problems are very common today. Many of us are sitting for hours in front of the computer or other devices loosing a sense of how we are sitting, holding ourselves and of how we are actually feeling! Hours later we realise that we are in pain and are feeling uncomfortable. Stress patterns build up and this can add to an overall sense of not feeling well. The Feldenkrais Method works on many levels. Physical, emotional and how we think and organise ourselves.
Let go of stressful habitual patterns + Improve your overall awareness + Feel more focused and full of vitality and much more.
The workshop will consist of several lessons Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement lessons .
There will also be some practical ideas from Bones for Life – a method developed by Ruth Alon which helps with with bone strengthening .
You will be lying on a yoga mat during most of the lessons. It is no problem if you need help getting on and off the floor!
You will be verbally guided through a variety of movement sequences that are easy to follow.
You are invited to listen to yourself, sense your own comfort zone and ease within each movement pattern.
Unusual movement combinations allow you to discover new things. You are invited to explore your own range of movement.
The focus is completely on yourself and how you are at this moment in time whilst doing the movements.
Yoga mats are provided!
At the end participants are often surprised of how deeply released they feel (‘as if I had a massage’). They often feel longer, taller, more grounded. Freer in their movements. Pain areas have released. The mind feels more focused and at peace.
