From Saturday’s lessons, we continue to expand on breathing and add the theme of fascia. In addition to Feldenkrais lessons, we also use sounds and breath techniques from WaveContinuum to hydrate the tissue through certain sounds and breath and seek a movement quality that speaks directly to our fascia. The fascia is less dense and more innervated than muscle.
“Fascia has nerves that make it almost as sensitive as skin. When stressed, it tightens up. Although fascia looks like one sheet of tissue, it’s actually made up of multiple layers with liquid in between called hyaluronan.” – Johns Hopkins Medicine Journal
Fascia must be hydrated and free to slide in order to do its job. Breath, sounds and special movement sequences we combine will help you to do just that. The result is more flexibility in your back, pelvis and larger joints, with a wonderful feeling of space and fluidity.
Workshops can be taken individually or in combination for even greater benefits.
The Feldenkrais® method was developed by Judo Black belt and physician Dr. M. Feldenkrais in the 1940s to help heal his severe sports injury. His method has helped thousands of people of all ages, world wide, to regain function and recover from injuries, tension and pain.
Dr. Feldenkrais understood that improving the function of the body starts with increasing the mind’s awareness of the body. With this new awareness, you re-pattern your movement, fascia and musculature. You drop excess effort and move with greater ease. Without even realizing it, you are resetting your nervous system. Your brain and body now work together more smoothly as you move.
Please have a pool noodle as roller bigger or small size roler (MELT roller works as well) or a tightly rolled beach towel or blanket available. Typical Pilates rollers are too large in diameter.
