Most people think that they need to do strengthening or stretching exercises to 'fix' their back pain. While flexibility and good muscle tone are important, the latest pain science shows that the most effective approaches for lasting relief and back health are ones which improve the communication and connection between your brain and your body. Through carefully designed slow gentle guided movement sequences you can learn to release chronically tightened muscles, re-pattern your movements and regain efficient pain-free use of your spine.
Feldenkrais lessons are a pleasurable way of deepening your capacity to sense accurately, to identify and reduce excessive effort, to discover healthy safe ways of moving while expanding and refining your movement repertoire. They are also a very helpful complement to meditation practice, using mindfulness of body and sensation as a gateway to a more fully embodied presence.
The class is suitable for any level of experience and ability, including visually impaired.
