Experience Mindfulness In Movement
MOVE BETTER, FEEL BETTER, BREATHE BETTER, LIVE BETTER!
There is a gradual shift in the science and medical world towards targeting the brain directly to resolve health issues and wean people away from dependency on pharmaceuticals. Recent research has also shown movement and meditation to be essential to healthy living.
The Feldenkrais Method® is a very powerful technique that combines these key elements of Western science and Eastern philosophies to change the state of our brain so that we are able to not only manage our pain or anxiety levels but also improve our performances in sports, music or drama.
ESTABLISHING YOUR CORE FOR OPTIMAL ALIGNMENT AND FUNCTION
The Oxford Language dictionary definition of ‘‘core’’ is ‘something that is central to the existence or character of someone or something’.
Yet many exercise regimes or health modalities use the term ‘core awareness’ in a very narrow sense, of engaging particular sets of muscles around the torso in an attempt to strengthen the lower back and improve posture. The emphasis on strengthening may encourage unnecessary ‘holding’ of yourself, and may reduce your ability to respond quickly to unexpected changes in the environment. A sturdy, rigid oak tree is more likely to topple in high winds than a more bendy willow tree.
In this summer series of workshops, you will learn a fresh and new way of engaging with your core, beyond the usual ‘naval to spine’ experience. Through movement and visualisation of the skeletal, fascial and chakra system, you will learn to connect the two halves of yourself – upper and lower parts – and develop a dynamic “core” more in line with the dictionary definition. The resulting embodied sense of your ‘‘centre’’ will improve your alignment and functioning and may lead to increased resilience. The aim is to feel strong, centred and grounded whilst being flexible and adaptable, not only physically but mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
