Moving with Ease and Joy Exploring Alexander Technique and the Feldenkrais Method
Course content will include playful, enjoyable work on standing, walking, sitting, reaching and more. Some considerable time will be spent lying on the ﬂoor and help will be readily available for anyone who may ﬁnd getting up and down difﬁcult. Some sections will include carefully facilitated hands on pair work which most people ﬁnd helpful and enjoyable. This is a great opportunity to spend a day achieving increased body awareness, reducing stress, and enhancing ease and pleasure in everyday movements and in your yoga/Pilates/dance classes/gym sessions. Both Alexander Technique and Feldenkrais Method allow us to let go of some of the habitual postural and movement habits acquired over a lifetime which limit our freedom and efﬁciency in movement.
Juliana and Hammond have been running residential dance and body awareness weekends together for around 20 years, developing increasingly effective ways of combining their skills and experience and a real passion for creating an environment where participants with a variety of backgrounds can learn, develop and discover new and more enjoyable ways of moving and being.
