MIND TO SPINE WORKSHOP

IMG_9124Taking the time to look after your spine and nervous system can lead to increased health and wellbeing. Sharing my knowledge on the importance of spinal health and correct movement is a passion of mine and hence I will be running these workshops through out 2016.

This workshop will increase your awareness about the essential back bone of your body. Wether you are injured or would simply like to prevent future injury this workshop is for you. 

All too often I hear of people injuring their back from a very simple movement. It is not the simple movement that causes the injury but instead the years of movement prior to this. We all form habits and mo
ve accordingly. These life habits often create imbalance in the body which only increases through repetition and unawareness.

We can help prevent injury through body and spinal awareness and understanding some simple movements which anyone can do.

Come and join in this 2hr workshop to improve the functioning of  your body – your spine, your mobility, your hips….and perhaps your body as a whole.

We will

  • discuss common back issues including Sciatica and Scoliosis.
  • discuss common joint issues such as Hyper Mobility and Hypo Mobility
  • practise movements to help improve the stability of muscles supporting the spine, including the pelvic floor.
  • gain invaluable body awareness
  • learn how less can be more
  • look at simple movements and techniques to help relieve pain and prevent injury.

The aim is to have effective maintenance and prevention of your own body to help keep your body and spine both strong and flexible.

What to bring:

Small towel (like a tea towel), large towel, your own mat if you have one, bolster if you have one. There are plenty of spare mats and bolsters however it is nice to have your own to help you practise the movements at home yourself in the future. Please wear something comfortable to move in.

Change Habits and Learn to Move Freely Workshop

“Make the impossible possible, the hard easy, and the easy elegant.” Moshe Feldenkrais

Change your age with this popular Feldenkrais Inspired Workshop

Take a few hours from your life and busy schedule to feel more mobility, functionality and awareness of your body to bring to your everyday activites whether it’s walking, running, yoga, surfing, getting up and down a ladder or simply getting up from a chair.

Throughout our life we form habits, we repeat these without being aware and before we know it parts of our body do not move as freely. We accept this, make excuses, adapt our movements and activities and continue on. Strength and will power will take us far, however too much forcing and strength will eat away at the body and it comes to a point where through pain or injury our body is forced to stop. If you tend to stretch lots, the same applies, too much stretching can cause our ligaments to eventually lose their elasticity and we become too mobile in our joints- especially the sacro-illiac joint (lower back), our body is forced to stop, or we simply have become older, stiffened up and accept that’s the way it is.

Do you want to be able to move freely at 80? What if there were some simple things you could do to regain functionality of your body to move more freely? What if you learnt, but more importantly, felt how your body moves? With understanding, feeling and action in a subtle slow way, change will happen.

Walk without pain, sit down without aches and lift with ease – That is possible for you, but it is up to you!

This workshop is for ALL ages –
If you think you’re too stiff or too old, then its DEFINITELY for you!
If you are in your 30’s/40’s and you have pain or aches, then it’s DEFINITELY for you.

The movements we will be doing are Feldenkrais Inspired -a philosophy and system of movement that has revolutionized the treatment for pain and loss of energy associated with daily activity, exercise and aging.
