Weekly classes

Themes addressed in the weekly classes with Sharon Munro

1st Term:
Developmental movement according to the Feldenkrais Method™

Developmental movement underlies most of what we do in everyday life. It’s for this reason that the Feldenkrais Method™ draws on these movements in order to resolve faulty or impeded movement patterns. In this course we’ll retrace how we acquire some of our most fundamental movement abilities.

2nd Term:
Supple feet and our sense of balance

Our environment, adaptation due to injury and the many demands we put on our feet can often result in them becoming tired, stiff or painful. Here we will use movements and our awareness to develop more softness and comfort in the feet and ankles.

We’ll explore and learn about the dynamic structure of the foot, observe how we relate to the floor and improve our sense of balance. In keeping with the Feldenkrais Method’s systemic approach we will equally be looking at how movement higher up in the skeletal structure affects the use of our feet.

3rd Term:
The use of the eyes in movement

We generally associate the eyes with vision and fail to recognize the important role they play in the coordination of our movements. While we explore lessons developed to improve the use of the eyes in movement we will feel positive effects in our vision, posture, breathing, movement and thinking.

Themes addressed in the weekly classes with Kai Schaper

1st Term:
Moving from the middle

Both expansive and powerful movements require the use of the pelvis. It is the biggest bony structure of the human skeleton, and around it are found the strongest muscles. The pelvic area forms therefore our power centre and is the motor for many of our movements. In order to fulfill this task the pelvis has to be able to move freely – the hip joints and the spine are the most important partners in this.

In this course we will explore the movement possibilities of the pelvis and experience the necessary cooperation with the rest of ourselves. It is only then that well-coordinated movement is possible

2nd Term:
Relaxing the shoulders and neck

Do you suffer sometimes from neck pain, headaches or tension in the shoulders and arms? Do you feel there is nothing you can do about it? Ever since the mass use of computers such complaints are rampant. Other causes may lie in movement habits that we aren’t even aware of.

In this course we will identify ways to diminish your complaints and to counter-act building tension by periodically doing small movements.

3rd Term:
The foot – a flexible foundation

Our feet are more complex than we tend to perceive them. They consist of 26 bones which are connected by a large number of articulations. All too often however, we enclose them in inappropriate shoes and have them walk on boring, hard pavements. Hence they themselves become hard, unflexible and numb. This makes us lose stability and balance and creates lots of tension throughout the whole body.

Get to know your feet better in this course, make them softer, more flexible and more intelligent, and savor the soothing effect on yourself.
