  • It is important to have healthy knees and ankles because so much pressure or force is transmitted through them every moment in which you are upright. If your ankles and knees are well organized in relation to the rest of your body, this type of pressure is absorbed easily. But, if your ankles and knees are poorly organized and not functioning well, shearing forces can cause damage and inflammation, exacerbate symptoms of arthritis, and make you more vulnerable to a range of orthopedic problems including osteoarthritis, torn menisci, patellofemoral pain, strained ligaments, fallen arches and sprained ankles.

    With summer activities in full swing, this Feldenkrais workshop might be exactly what you need. Join Janin Gunderman to learn valuable Feldenkrais lessons (exercises) that can help to restore and protect the strength, flexibility, and dependability of your knees and ankles.

    The quality of your breathing impacts the quality of your life. If your breathing is shallow and restricted, you are more likely to feel weak, anxious, and tired. If your breathing is healthy, you are more likely to feel strong, relaxed, and energetic. Healthy breathing promotes good circulation and relaxed muscles. It can improve your physical comfort, your posture, your energy and outlook, and your ability to handle stress.

    This valuable and soothing workshop with Senior Staff Practitioner Mark Hirschfield features Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement lessons (exercises) designed to enhance the function of your entire breathing apparatus. Youll find ease and improvement in your ribs, belly, shoulders, neck and pelvis. By enhancing your awareness of the way air enters and exits your body, the Feldenkrais Method can help you to enjoy a greater sense of wellbeing and vitality. Join Mark Hirschfield to learn a Feldenkrais approach to better breathing.

    Have you heard of the Feldenkrais Method but not tried it yet? Or have you tried it, been amazed, and want to understand it better? In a world full of stress-related aches and pains, and medicines that often mask our discomforts instead of resolving them, the Feldenkrais Method is a resource worth knowing about.

    When Dr. Feldenkrais began to develop his unique understandings about the human brain and body, he was fifty years ahead of his time. Gradually, science is beginning to catch up. Now, it is widely known that our brain is flexible, much more powerful than our muscles, capable of change and learning at any age, and that even our oldest habits of self-use can be up-dated if the right kind opportunity for change is provided.

    The Feldenkrais Method specializes in creating opportunities in which your brain can sample and develop new pathways on behalf of your body. This workshop will be a treat; please join a very experienced teacher, Feldenkrais Institute Co-founder, Marek Wyszynski, for an introduction to the Feldenkrais Method.

    Feldenkrais exercises can make everything that you do easier and more comfortable, including yoga! Do you ever find it challenging to maintain your balance while holding postures like Tree, Warrior III, Half-Moon, Extended hand-to-foot or Dancer? Or have you ever noticed that it is easier for you to balance on one leg than the other, and wondered why?

    The Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement lessons (or exercises) featured in this dedicated workshop will help to clarify your awareness so that you can understand what you do habitually, in all your balancing poses, and make improvements. Once you become aware of your unconscious habits, new options will begin to emerge, allowing you to recalibrate your balance in an effortless and effective way. Because the Feldenkrais Method is designed to improve your skeletal and neuromuscular organization, it can have an profoundly positive and supportive effect on your yoga practice.

    Please join Yoga Teacher and Feldenkrais Practitioner Suzanne Ausnit to use Feldenkrais to develop your awareness and improve your balance both on, and off the mat.
