5 days of education applying the skills and insights of the Feldenkrais Method to massage and other bodywork modalities.
The Feldenkrais Method offers particular insights on using touch as a means of communication that effects underlying patterns of movement, posture, limitation, stress and efficiency. Functional Integration, the bodywork aspect of the Feldenkrais Method, is its own in depth method that takes years to learn. However, many of its underlying principles and skills can substantially enrich other massage and bodywork practices.
The week is going to revolve around three themes:
- the power of reducing effort
- integrative skeletal contact
- how mobilization becomes functional learning
These transform a bodywork session into a dialog with the aspects of a person that organize tonus, movement and self perception, which foster a deep somatic experience of transformation.
We are going to explore new skills, integrate them into our existing methods and do some Awareness Through Movement to clarify certain principles of the Feldenkrais Method. Those coming to the workshop should already have experience with a bodywork modality.
The weekend prior to the retreat there is also going to be a Feldenkrais method workshopfocused on the significance of circular patterns in our movement.
