Event description
A Feldenkrais® Workshop for Performers and Psychotherapists

About this Event

“Improvement of talented people comes through their awareness of themselves in action. Their talent arises from their freedom to choose their modes of action.” (Moshe Feldenkrais)

What do performing artists and psychotherapists have in common?

Each are constantly creating and adapting on many layers of activity and awareness: listening, attuning to and resonating with client, art form, students, the environment. They are picking up myriad cues, many of them below conscious knowing; until they become aware and conscious of them. This tool of awareness makes possible increased refinement, and choice in action, thought and emotion.

Our primary tool is our self. This workshop will promote more awareness of the intimate relationship between our intentions and our ability to express them.

Ask yourself:

  • How do I express my intentions in my art, work or life?
  • How do I find pleasure in what I do?
  • How do I know what to change to get better outcomes?
  • How can I avoid work-related injuries or pain?

Using the Feldenkrais Method’s® Awareness Through Movement® lessons we will address what is needed to realize your intentions. We will do this by:

  • Finding support from the ground through your skeleton.
  • Discovering the proportional use of muscles: using the large central muscles to free the use of arms and hands.
  • Maintaining an ease of breath.
  • Shifting weight smoothly to improve sound production and a sense of balance.
  • Improving the coordinated use of eyes, arms, and body.
  • Improving the ability to orient in space.

Alice writes: “My engagement in this amazing work started with my training in 1984. As a Feldenkrais practitioner my work is enhanced by the skills and insights gained from my years of dance experience, my professional work as a Registered Psychologist and my study of human development. I continue to weave the current advancements in neuroscience, movement education and somatic psychology with the principles and applications of the Feldenkrais Method.

About the Workshop:

Day one (Friday, March 27 9:30 - 4:30) will be an in-depth introduction to the fundamentals of the Feldenkrais Method. It is the essential ground for the following two days of deepening explorations

Day two (Saturday, March 28 9:30 - 4:30)will be slanted toward the performing artists but applicable to all. The questions and concerns of the participants will help direct the course of the lessons for the day.

Day three (Sunday, March 29 9:30 - 4:30) will be slanted toward the concerns of psychotherapists and somatic practitioners though their concerns are also applicable to all. The questions and concerns of participants will help guide the course of the day.

All three days will immerse you in the joy and challenge of learning. The more you immerse yourself and enjoy the days, the more you can learn and integrate into your life.
