Feldenkrais for Life: Improving your Movement

  • Naramata Centre Naramata Centre
  • Naramata, BC, Canada
  • Jul 8 - 12, 2019 (5 days)

About This Event

We will cover the fundamental principles of the Feldenkrais approach and do two Awareness Through Movement lessons each day.

Each lesson has a theme that supports important movement ideas. Each day we will progress to finish with a challenging movement sequence that will promote each participant to apply the ideas beyond the workshop (modifications are used to adapt to all abilities). Practically, this means making functional movements in fun and novel sequences. We always include floor work – for example: coming to sit and stand by rolling, exploring themes around walking, reaching and balancing – while taking time each day to focus briefly on anatomy and the healthy functioning of hips, shoulders, spine, knees and feet. Some working principles are:

Applied mindfulness and self-reflection – through moving.

Working with the novelty your brain needs to learn & ad

Regaining posture that supports your health.

Reclaiming your inner resilience and applying new tools for healthier movement.

Verbally guided gentle movements anyone can do, to be applied in any context.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

I teach yoga part time and am a mom of two toddlers full time. I love my life, but goodness do I need a break. My husband and I have been putting off our wedding ceremony for 4 years because life has gotten in the way. We haven't had a single night alone since our family has grown. I wouldn't change a thing about our lives now, but it would be so wonderful to remember what it's like to 'just be us.' Antrim
 

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
