We will spend two days in December immersed in the gentle transformative power of the Feldenkrais Method. It will be a time to slow down and listen to what is at work in our movement. As we become aware of how we move, we gain the ability to expand our repertoire in ways that are surprisingly easy and enjoyable.
Under the guidance of Luiza Moraes, participants will have the opportunity to further develop their movement history to meet their current needs. We often continue to carry movement and emotional patterns that are no longer efficient which cause a sense of discomfort, pain or excessive effort to perform simple actions. Feldenkrais offers a fresh range of possibilities and engages the intelligence of the nervous system to improve the quality of our movement.
This workshop is recommended to all those who are interested in developing their movement further, be that for specialized fields such as dance or sports or for general everyday actions.
The program of the workshop will include:
Awareness Through Movement lessons (more below)
Presentation of core principles of the Feldenkrais Method
Structured sharing and discussion
(optional) Functional Integration lesson for an extra fee (more below)
Awareness Through Movement is a lesson in which students are verbally guided to perform simple actions with a great sense of ease. As the lessons tap into underlying movement principles present in the organization of the nervous system, they promote an actualization of our strategies in action. As a result, students generally experience a sense of relaxed alertness with improved breathing, posture and emotional well-being.
All students who sign up for the intensive will have the option to also schedule a Functional Integration lesson for an extra fee of HUF 6.000. Functional Integration is a lesson of the Feldenkrais Method which happens through touch and is designed for the needs of each individual student. Lessons will happen in the II district, 2 minutes away from Jurányi and will be scheduled for the week following the intensive.
