Sat 30 Sept (Re)discover freedom
Second introductory workshop
We don't move for the sake of moving. We move to do things, get things, achieve things. This achievement brings us satisfaction. When freedom of movement breaks down we experience the opposite of satisfaction. This workshop explores how the whole of you, from eyes to toes and everything in between, can be more involved in your moving.

Sun 22 Nov A Workshop Focusing on Touch
Feeling more (of) yourself
Your touch sense is what allows you to be able to make contact with the external physical world around you , and with your internal world of organs and joints. Feedback from inside yourself, and from the outside world is important to give you your idea of yourself.
Disturbances to this feedback due to injury, illness, old habits become useless, faulty learning, bad teaching, and so on, make it hard for the nervous system to make good decisions. The result is stiffness, awkwardness, sluggishness – feeling out of sorts and disconnected from the outside world of people, things and goings-on. You simply feel less yourself.
During this workshop, you will get in better touch with yourself through gaining a better understanding of yourself in movement. You will feel more yourself.
Part of this workshop is devoted to hands-on exploration – exploring the special quality of touch used in the Feldenkrais Method. This touch is non-invasive and very gentle, it does not dig, or press or stretch. But it is persuasive – imagine a mother caring for a small child.
This workshop will be useful also to anyone who cares for others – whether professionally or not. When you make contact with another body, you are not simply doing stuff, you are making a connection between their thinking and your own - through your hands. The more satisfying and informative the touch, the more satisfying the interaction.
