Weekly classes

Themes addressed in the weekly classes with Sharon Munro

1st Term:
The hips, pelvis and lower back

These classes focus on how to release patterns of tension which can create a feeling of limitation or discomfort in these areas.

Restoring a feeling of balance, support and relaxation is the key to healthy functioning.

2nd Term:
Pushing and pulling – lifting and lowering

We employ these common everyday actions in numerous ways while doing the housework, gardening, working in the office, or playing a musical instrument. Strain can occur in joints and muscles through over-use, by being in awkward positions or by using too much force.

These classes will address how to make these actions safer and more effortless.

3rd Term:
Releasing tension in the neck and shoulders

Why does tension in the neck often spread to the shoulders and vice-versa? Why does it reappear in frequent and familiar ways? Could there be a long-term solution?

The method provides a safe way to learn about how these parts move and relate to each other. Consequently our own natural ability for change and healthy functioning is revealed.

Themes addressed in the weekly classes with Kai Schaper

1nd Term:
An intelligent spine

Contrary to common belief that one has to strengthen the back in order to straighten it and get rid of back pain, the Feldenkrais Method™ assumes that it is the natural mobility of the back that takes care of this. On the other hand, any rigidity and stiffness limits the possibilities that the back should have. It is when it regains its elasticity and manages to react adequately to all demands that it becomes a healthy back.

This course on the directions of movement of the spine will improve the mobility of your back.

2st Term:
Transitions – how to change from one position to another

Many people experience life as a series of more or less uncomfortable positions without ever paying attention to how they actually get into them.

However, if you study more closely the transition between two points you can begin to manage these changes more easily and discover that the end positions are less tiring than you thought. The idea of a static posture could be replaced by the idea of a dynamic one in which sitting, standing, kneeling and lying are seen as transitional positions.

3rd Term:
Breathing according to the Feldenkrais Method™

Whether you are a singer or a teacher, a musician or an athlete, whether you have respiratory difficulties or sleep problems, whether you meditate or practice another form of well-being – there are numerous reasons to be interested in breathing. There are also many different ways to breathe.

This is why the Feldenkrais Method™ does not teach « the » right way of breathing but helps you to familiarize yourself with it and use it more appropriately according to the circumstances.
