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.

Improve Your Balance, Strength and Flexibility Part 1, 2 & 3

These three elements are amongst the most important in human functioning, both physically and mentally. Deterioration in any of these areas is common as we get older, but this need not be an inevitable consequence of the ageing process.

BALANCE
Without good balance, we are more likely to fall and hurt ourselves.

STRENGTH
Without strength, we may struggle to accomplish certain everyday tasks and our balance can be affected.

FLEXIBILITY
Without flexibility, we may find it difficult to move around easily – lack of movement can eventually lead to loss of balance and strength.

All three elements are interdependent and work together to provide physical and mental integrity. It has been shown that improvement in our physical self leads to improvement in our mental state.

In these 3 workshops, we will be exploring our sense of balance, strength and flexibility through a combined process of body mindfulness, breathing awareness and knowledge of basic anatomy and physiology.

Benefits may include improvement in posture, stamina and pain conditions, less instances of injury and reduced stress / anxiety levels.

Playing with Ease: Explore Your Potential

This course, based on the Feldenkrais Method®, is specifically designed for instrumentalists and singers of all levels. It aims to enhance your enjoyment in playing or singing, both physically and musically, increase your effectiveness in practising and reduce tension in your playing which could contribute to pain and/or anxiety issues.

Through a series of mindful and gentle movement sequences, you will explore your posture and movement habits and develop pathways to easier, more pleasurable, fully integrated action. These exploratory and playful movement sequences will be experienced in  a non judgmental class situation through verbal instruction by the tutors who are qualified practitioners. 

Benefits can include a feeling of lightness in movement, improved breathing and better awareness of how to use the body. There will be opportunities to experience this freedom in your playing or singing as your music making becomes more efficient, effortless and enjoyable.

Experienced performers, teachers, and Guild certified Feldenkrais Practitioners, Josephine Horder (cello) and Yeu-Meng Chan (piano) are dedicated to improving all aspects of music making and performance.
