Description

In the face of injury or other insult we instinctively aim toward protecting ourselves.  Doing so often results in movement patterns and postures that exacerbate rather than alleviate discomfort, be it physical or emotional.  Focused breathing, integrated with gentle movement, can provide the foundation for healing and easier ways of being.  Using Feldenkrais movement lessons as the focus of inquiry, we’ll explore the potency of breath in supporting ease.
