Feldenkrais for Yoga: Using Self Awareness to Improve Yoga Asanas and All We Do
Using Moshe Feldenkrais’s awareness through movement techniques we will learn to improve ourselves but also novel techniques to give students wonderful noticeable results in classes.
The Feldenkrais method named after its originator Dr Moshe Feldenkrais, is a scientific way of learning movement. He developed over 1000 lessons normally with 12 or more movements, mapping out all areas of voluntary movement in the body.
This one-day workshop will give us the tools to learn how to learn to improve all yoga postures, how they benefit us and embody the benefits of Yoga into life. Using Moshe Feldenkrais’s awareness through movement techniques we will learn to improve ourselves but also novel techniques to give students wonderful noticeable results in classes.
With yoga we can sometimes work our way deep into postures, discovering how far we can go. Sometimes we use great skills in stretching and muscle control to align ourselves. In Feldenkrais we take advantage of the body’s amazing abilities to improve itself through gentle often meditative movements, allowing the brain to detect, reduce and sometimes remove unnecessary, counterproductive, muscular effort in the body. We will explore how gentle movements can take us into asanas with much less effort and how all yoga postures can be improved with the Feldenkrais method – some very dramatically.
