Finding your Feet - A gentle Feldenkrais method workshop

Go deeper and luxuriate with three hours of nourishing movement.

Your feet are your foundation. They are your interface with the ground. They are expected to bear your weight, adjust to varying surfaces and keep you in equilibrium.

Popular sayings suggest their importance as sources of resilience, adaptability and power – “stand on your own two feet”, “think on your feet” and “put your best foot forward”.

As babies, our feet start out with as much potential for agility as our hands. Yet, day to day, we get used to keeping feet relatively immobile within shoes. Ankle, knee and hip tightness or compensations can be related to an incomplete use of the feet.

In this workshop we will heighten your awareness of your feet and ankles’ possibilities for movement. We will use minimum effort with maximum curiosity. You will sense a greater connection to the ground, a more effortless sense of balance from the bottom up and a walk with ease and power. Your whole self will feel greater ease.

You will lie on mats on the floor and be guided through movement explorations. The teacher will help everyone be comfortable and answer questions about the method and why it works to improve mobility.
