Feldenkrais for Ease & Grace with
Tuesday, January 30th
4:30 PM – 5:30 PM
Tuesday, January 6th
4.30 PM – 5.30 PM
Feldenkrais works with neuroplasticity and the brain’s natural ability to sort for efficient movement. Each lesson is a puzzle for the nervous system done gently and pleasurably while lying down. By going slowly to sense more, one is able to let go of habitual holding patterns and discover easier and more coordinated ways of moving.
This will not be a class of stretching or strengthening, but rather a class about learning how to use yourself. Indirectly, by exploring how to bring your whole self to an action while reducing unnecessary effort, you will develop a greater sense of your ground, center, length, and spaciousness. Join as a drop in for one class or take the series of three.
Wound Dwelling : Writing & Breathing with Survivor Body(ies)
with Jennifer Patterson
Wednesday, February 7th
7:30 pm – 9:30 pm
In this Breathwork & Somatic writing workshop we will focus on translating surviving and survivorhood; what it looks and feels like to live beyond traumatic experiences. The dominant narratives about the survivor body(ies)— often pathologized as disembodied, disassociated and unwell— will be turned on their heads.
As a group we will explore texts, utilize Breathwork and body-focused writing prompts and share our work with each other as we engage in conversation about writing as a tool for healing and connecting to our wise bodies. There will also be a shared altar so please bring meaningful and protective items to help us hold space.
