Description

Athletics training typically focuses on the role of muscles in movements propelling us through space.  Moshe Feldenkrais demonstrated that the way we use ourselves in relation to our environment is critical in maximizing movement potential, at the same time minimizing the energy spent. From his perspective we can learn to move with the greatest of ease and efficiency.  In this workshop, we will explore the principles underlying this view and offer an outlook that challenges traditional sports-training paradigms. With Feldenkrais movement lessons as our basis, we will discover the sources of ease, efficiency, mobility, and strength, so important in training and performance.
