This Feldenkrais® workshop gives you the chance to re-balance, restore and realign forgotten muscles, connective tissue and organs. By practicing Feldenkrais® you give yourself the chance to transform aspects of your life that go way beyond your musculature. 

Learn to make use of the powerhouse of your locomotion: your hip-pelvis-lower back connection. 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! 

Powerful Alignments:  From the pelvic floor, the sacrum, the lumbar spine all the way to atlas. In this workshop you gain more mobility with more control of your pelvis and a longer spine with better alignment. Improvements in the pelvic floor, sacral area, diaphragm and palate lead to alignment of the entire spine! Just remember: Elvis ‘The Pelvis’ had great movement and a good voice!

Usually when we think of muscles we think of the bigger muscles like hamstrings or stomach muscles. We rarely give attention to many important, sometimes deep, small muscles, such as the ones that move the sphincter or the vertebrae of the spine. These muscle groups are often unbalanced. Crooked and inefficient usage shows up as an inherent imbalance in the system. Tight anterior muscles can inhibit organs such as the lungs and the intestines from working efficiently.
