Day 3: Walk Easy, Aligning Head to Toes with a Strong, Mobile Pelvis
Learn to make better use of your locomotion’s powerhouse: your hip – pelvis – lower back connection. We will refine our perception of HOW we walk in these lessons. The hip joints are part of the pelvis. The psoas muscle connects the legs to the lower back through the pelvis. Opening the hip flexors in this workshop increases healthy mobility and prevents hip damage. These Feldenkrais® movements enable you to sense the connection of your legs into your pelvis and torso so that all parts work together for powerful, flexible movement! Your lower back will also benefit.
This 3–day Feldenkrais® Weekend immerses you into your whole body, Tip to Toe Fitness in a way you don’t get in a single class or single workshop. Many of us have developed habitual ways of walking, standing, sitting, and so on, that don’t work very effectively; worse, those habits may actually be physically damaging. In this workshop series, you keep learning and improving for 3 consecutive days, giving you extra time to loosen the hold of old habits and embed new, effective patterns of movement.
Walking efficiently and elegantly is very complex and many joints and muscles have to work together harmoniously, like a big orchestra. The different movement lessons within each daily workshop approach the theme from different angles, so that all parts of yourself will benefit, and you will leave with a well-rounded experience and healthy walk.
Attendance at all 3 workshops is highly recommended for immersion; 2 is better than 1; and 1 is better than none at all!
