Discovering Balance with Anastasi Siotas – Calgary November 9th and 10th
Find the feeling of effortless movement and sense of balance arises when all our systems work in an integrated way.
The ability to remain balanced in our ever-changing world requires a coordination that is in a state of refinement over our lifetime.
This 2-day workshop based on the Feldenkrais Method of Somatic Education provides precise tools for such continuous self-study and leads to ever broader skills that bring more balance to life.
The practical movement explorations called Awareness Through Movement® reveal something innate in all human beings; the ability to learn ever more efficient ways of going about any activity of daily life.
Feldenkrais lessons mine the richness of evolutionary and developmental modes of locomotion and unlock their potential for improving ones ability to find ones feet well-grounded while standing tall and moving.
The feeling of effortless movement and sense of balance arises when all our systems; muscular, skeletal and fascial work in an integrated way with our neurology and emotions. No part of our system works more than necessary thus freeing disproportionate tensions that hinder our comfort. Feldenkrais lessons explore the “how” of finding this state of ease and support Biotensegrity: a 21st-century anatomical concept that views all organisms as a complex integration of cellular subsystems. The connection of all of ourselves in everything we do is a principle of the Feldenkrais Method.
This workshop is for you if:
