Learn how much your shoulders can relax.
Discover new freedom in your hips.
It’s not uncommon for discomfort to manifest in both shoulders and hips simultaneously. In our Feldenkrais approach to the body and mind, we see intricate connections.
A “shoulder” is more than just a spot on the body; it’s more than a joint. Its position at rest and how we move it reflects complex connections with various parts of ourselves – connections and habitual tensions that often escape our awareness. It’s through cultivating this awareness that change truly begins.
The building of awareness at so many levels produces changes that are felt throughout oneself. Recently, a student marvelled as her newfound shoulder freedom led to the diminishment of her neck issues.
Step by step, starting from very simple movements, each class brings you gently to new realizations on your path to freedom of your shoulders and hips.
Join us online, Tuesday evenings at 7:30 pm. for 6 classes, starting Sept 12, and finishing October 17.
If you are not able to attend online, the recordings will be available for those unable to attend in person.
Each class will bring ease to shoulders and hips, although some classes may seem to have a focus more on one area.
