Foundations of the Feldenkrais® Method

presented at Prairie Yoga

12/3/2017, 11 am – 4 pm

The Feldenkrais® Method is known as a way of finding ease in physical movement, but it is really much more than that. Rather than being about the body, Feldenkrais is about learning, and learning how to learn. Moshe Feldenkrais used movement as his metaphor because it is readily accessible to everyone. During this workshop, we will use movement to explore the underlying principles behind the method and how to make our endeavors – from learning to play an instrument to doing yoga – about learning as opposed to simply doing.

Open to anyone.

How you are wired emotionally affects how you move. Likewise, how you move affects your emotions. Imagine if you had a few simple things you could do to quiet your nervous system so that both your mind and your body could feel more comfortable, even in the middle of a challenge.

For anyone wishing for some calm and lightness in their life. (aka, pretty much everyone!)

Powerful Presence – Move Into Your Power
A Workshop for Women

presented at Prairie Yoga

9/16/2017, 10:30am – 4:30pm

In this workshop, you will use awareness and movement to experience the possibility of shifting your patterns of muscular contraction to attain a more neutral stance and emotional state. This sense of neutrality in carriage and emotion is felt and observed as having a powerful presence. From this place of neutrality, you unburden yourself from unnecessary muscular effort and emotional constraint, and free yourself to respond appropriately to life.

For Women Only.
