Our brains perceive thinking, feeling, sensing and moving the same. The more mindful and aware we are of any one of these, it affects the other. When we draw more of ourselves into everything we do, our entire "self" functions at a different level bringing vibrant health and vitality.
Based on The Feldenkrais Method®. Through group/individual classes and hands-on work, small and slow personalized movements allow you to sense yourself more clearly. This “sensing” is how you're able to bypass habitual movement patterns and establish or rekindle neuro pathways. As you learn to change patterns of movement associated with pain and/or restrictions, you embody new ones that put less stress and strain on yourself.
Mindful and respectful touch guide you to a deeper connection with yourself where you'll discover and let go of old muscular holding patterns.
