3 DAY WORKSHOP: July 25th- 27th
In this workshop, we will look at Moshe Feldenkrais’ ideas that are linked with his practical martial-arts work in Judo and self-defense, and discuss the basic influences that the martial arts had on the development of the Feldenkrais Method. From there, we will experience and analyze self-defense techniques as they arise from Awareness Through Movement® lessons, helping us to understand the effectiveness of the Feldenkrais Method from the point of view of survival.

2 DAY WORKSHOP: July 26 & 27th
Gravity is, paradoxically, our biggest ally in sports that involve speed and the control of speed. Only when we have control can we really “let go” and feel the freedom of movement in harmony with nature. In this workshop, we will use Awareness Through Movement lessons and discussion to explore this paradox, with an emphasis on the direct application of the Feldenkrais Method to sports, in particular my specialties of skiing and snowboarding. The specific role the eyes play in performance enhancement will also be incorporated in the lessons.
