Intrinsic Rewards: Moving from Within
Feldenkrais Method® of Somatic Education
A Transformative Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement® Class
This class is on hold for now.
Intrinsic rewards come from within, rather than from external validation. They come from systematic changes, and how we value the changes that we have discovered through our learning process.
As we learn to move (and relate, and communicate), we do the best we can to find something that works. However, our constructed habits of movement (and living) that served us, that were good enough once, eventually can lead to patterns of pain. Or just not feeling good.
I had to learn a new way.
The Feldenkrais Method® was instrumental in this process. By playing with movement in novel ways, we experience learning puzzles that help us access movement patterns out of context. That means we can question, discover, and try on new ways of being.
I have met myself in so many different shapes and constraints that I have run into my old attitudes, and questioned if they served me. What I was taught when I was young was a great place to start, but I didn’t understand then that what I learned was modelled on bodies that were not mine, cultural attitudes and actions that were based on what someone else believed, how someone else thought I should move, behave, and live.
Join this class to explore processes of learning that can improve your relationship with yourself (and others).
We build our idea of ourselves throughout our lives. Here is a place you can teach yourself to learn something that emerges from yourself.
Like all foundational learning, It is not a one-time process, but one time can offer you some insights.
Sure, pain relief happens here. But so does learning to stand in neutral during times of conflict. So does learning to rely on your own structure for support so that you feel more free to move.
Welcome one and all.
WHY DO FELDENKRAIS?
Discover ways of moving that inspire, bring ease, or even challenge what you think you know about yourself. Awareness Through Movement is a guided exploration of how you move and function that lights up areas of yourself that you may not be using, or may be using in a way that isn't optimal.
Your own deep insights gained through this facilitated Awareness through Movement® lesson (think playful, slow, exploratory floor work), and an opportunity for learning that will influence how you move through life.
