Feldenkrais for a Covid World

IN-PERSON ONE-TO-ONE (Functional Integration)
I am open for live one-to-one, hands-on sessions now. Current  information on PPE and Covid protocol here

COST: £60 (£55/50/45 discounts available if needed) Sessions last about an hour.

WORKSHOPS ONLINE:

“It’s All In Your Head”
Saturday 17th October 10.30-1.30 ONLINE

Your head weighs 4-5k and contains important organs of perception and communication – eyes, ears, mouth. The part it plays in your balance and fundamental movement skills is more significant than you may guess.
This is a morning to explore the spaces in your skull, the use of eyes, tongue and jaw a little, and begin notice those wider effects.
COST: £30
TO BOOK: Please contact Victoria for the Zoom link.

“Getting Off The Floor”
Saturday 14th November 10.30-1.30 ONLINE

Whether are young and looking for more refinement,  ease and athleticism, or getting older and want to improve, keep or refind your ability to not get stuck on the ground, this is for you.
We will go from lying to sitting and sitting to standing. And of course reverse.
A little space around you would be good.
COST: £30
TO BOOK: Please contact Victoria for the Zoom link.

WAYS TO PAY
-via Paypal: feldenkraisworksvw@gmail.com
-via internet banking:  please ask me for details
I am not able to help those who cannot get into the class for any reason,. especially once class has started and I am teaching. It might be best to pay straight after the class rather than before, in case you don’t manage to get in or something goes badly wrong.

DISCLAIMER
PLEASE NOTE THAT I CANNOT SEE YOU AS WELL AS USUAL IN CLASS, SO IT WILL BE IMPORTANT TO LOOK AFTER YOURSELF CAREFULLY, GO GENTLY AND DON’T DO THINGS THAT HURT OR STRAIN.
JOINING A CLASS WILL BE AT YOUR OWN RISK.

FREE SHORT RECORDINGS
I have made a series of short lessons from 30-40 minutes long which are up on my vimeo and are embedded The lessons cover aspects of life that seemed important during the Lockdown, (and continue to be!). They were selected for being  calming as well:

  • eyes, hand, arms, shoulders, neck – for so much phone and computer use being online.
  • breathing – we all need good lung capacity in case we get ill or are recovering

You will need  enough space to lie down on the floor (on a mat or blanket). Have a towel or blanket that you can fold to put under your head if you need it rather than a soft cushion or pillow as these tend to prevent your head from moving.
Please be sure to do these lessons gently, carefully and stop if anything hurts or strains. I am not there to help keep you safe, so it will be up to you to look after yourself.

Lesson 1: Hands and EyesLesson 2: Softer Hands, Easier Shoulders

Lesson 3: Making Space for the Breath

Lesson 4: Corkscrew for the Ribs, Breath and Eyes

Lesson 5: See-Saw Breathing and Twisting
