If you want more performance out of your body then the Feldenkrais Method is for you.
Changing your movement habits and patterns with Feldenkrais can have a huge impact on how you carry and support your body weight, hold your body and maintain posture and it can even improve how you will age!
ViVi Therapy’s Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement Workshops will lead you to a place where you become aware of inefficient movement habits. Once you develop this awareness you then have the option to change what you are doing. With the guidance of Roxanne Derkson, individuals can replace old habits with newer more efficient skeletal based motion. Feldenkrais movement education can really improve how people feel, move and age. It is possible to change your body image based on higher functioning and improve self esteem as a result. Wrinkles and crankiness is not what ages us as much as our habits. Trying new things and developing new ways of moving helps break the cycle of habits that age us.
When regular daily movement patterns are inefficient and strained increased muscular tension and joint compression or stiffness begin to be the norm. Often people find they are living with daily physical discomfort and even chronic pain. As individuals we lack the “know how” to change the movement that contributes to the problem. Over time, arthritis, osteoporosis, disc degeneration and need for joint replacements are the result and considered common in our aging population. The higher the demands on the body for repetitive daily movement or inactivity the higher the need for a finer tuned body. The Feldenkrais Method delivers the fine tuning.
We will be holding a series of 3 x 3 hour Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement workshops.
Thoracic Connections – is the second in the series of workshops.
The often neglected trunk of your body holds an important key to rotation of the body and head. In many people it is underutilized in daily movement.
- -Improve the upper body’s ability to turn, reach, improve shoulder range of motion and lengthen the spine.
- -Connect the trunk to the head motion fluidly without starin. Reduce poor posture, muscle tension and joint stiffness.
- -Do yoga? improve what you pay attention to.
