We are pleased to welcome one of the country’s senior Feldenkrais® practitioners in the U.S. to the institute. This is a rare opportunity to work with Bob, as he resides on the East Coast. Balance is much more than avoiding a tumble. The quality of your balance affects the fluidity of your gait and your general feeling of comfort and safety. Balance can be refined and improved as you learn how to use autonomic cues to recognize a state of relaxed balance where standing and walking are effortless and pleasurable. This workshop will apply Feldenkrais’s Awareness Through Movement® work and the gentle sensing work of early somatic innovator Elsa Gindler. You will learn to deepen your ease, safety and stability of balance in standing and walking at various speeds. We will explore alignment and movements of the most significant balancing joints—the ankles, hip joints and the atlanto-occipital joint (where the head balances on the spine). Appropriate for individuals who wish to work on their balance as well as professionals in the moving and healing arts, such as PTs, OTs, bodyworkers and psychotherapists.
