Description:

Recharge your body & spirit!

Discover the Galapagos Islands from your base in a beautiful, well appointed lodge surrounded by a 12 acre private reserve laced with walking paths in the company of giant land tortoises. You’ll share the beach & trails with some of the most intriguing and docile wildlife on the planet as you venture by boat to many different islands, snorkel with sea lions, sea turtles and rays, kayak in a beautiful calm bay, hike the highlands of an island volcano, watch colorful displays of unique birds and enjoy spectacular landscapes! 

Prepare for these activities and relate more fully to the wildlife you’ll see by exploring Origins of Motion! A Feldenkrais® series of Awareness Through Movement® sessions coupled with one individualized Feldenkrais Functional Integration® session. Trace the evolution of movement patterns through the ages and as mirrored by your own lifetime of movement! Discover how revisiting, refreshing and renewing these developmental patterns can improve your capabilities and physiologic functions in daily life.  Gently yet powerfully improve your balance, flexibility, agility, posture, resilience, comfort, ease & enjoyment as your skills and your spirits are lifted! Benefit from a renewed sense of “coming home” within your body through the profoundly integrative qualities of Feldenkrais classes and an individual Feldenkrais session to deeply restore and center yourself, strengthen your sense of well being, enhance your vitality, reduce pain and sleep peacefully after a day well spent!
