ONE-TO-ONE HANDS-ON SESSIONS IN CROUCH END (Functional Integration®)

Sessions available most week-days between 9.30am and 4.00pm and on  Wednesday and Thursday evenings (Monday instead of Thursday from Jan 2019). Thursday afternoon possible sometimes by special arrangement. Sessions last about an hour. Please wear loose warm clothes.
£55 fully waged/£45 unwaged/£40 children 0-16yrs
NB even young children usually have a one hour session so there is time to go slowly and take breaks as needed. However occasionally only half an hour is appropriate (£30).
Booking:  Victoria 0771 1088765

FI ‘INTENSIVE’ : 4 FIs in one week (£195/165)
For some people this might be an interesting way to work and could create the conditions for a burst of improvement. After all Dr Feldenkrais worked that way often. However, as this is a more intensive way of working it is not suitable for all. Please call to discuss.  

It is subject to availability so best to book at least 2 weeks in advance.

Also please note the price is a little cheaper to make it easier because of the time frame, so it is only this price for 4 FIs all within the one week. It is really about the way of working, not an ‘offer’ as such.

WORKSHOPS (Spring/Summer 2019)

FOR EVERYONE:

Sat 11th May: ‘Eyes, Jaw, Tongue – and Spine’
Dharma Shala, 92-4 Drummond Street, Euston, London NW1 2HN
(home of Astanga Yoga London) 10.30-4.30pm  £70/£60 (concession)
After the success of last year’s EYES workshop, we will explore the ways the eyes, jaw and tongue affect the freedom of the neck and whole spine, as well as our overall sense of ease.
Screens, stress and life experiences can affect the way we hold tension or limit movement in these areas which in turn affects the mobility and carriage of the head – and the whole spine that supports and moves it.
Book with Victoria

Sat  25th May: ‘Walking with Ease’
The City Lit, 1-10 Keeley Street, Covent Garden, London WC2B 4BA
10.15am – 5.15pm,  £89 Book with City Lit

Sat 22nd June: ‘A Leg to Stand On’
Dharma Shala, 92-4 Drummond Street, Euston, London NW1 2HN
(home of Astanga Yoga London) 10.30-4.30pm  £70/£60 (concession)
It is something of a feat that we are able to maintain an upright posture, even on one leg and one (small!) foot!In theory, if we are able not to interfere with our extraordinary engineering, at every point ground forces should be equal to our own weight so that we could move lightly and with effortless ease. And yet we rarely have that experience.
A day to explore that support structure from the ground up through the architecture of the skeleton to see if we can get closer to that quality of ease.

FOR ACTORS:

Sun 19th May: “The Transformatory Power of the Pelvis”
Shapes In Motion at Sadler’s Wells ,Rosebery Ave, London EC1R 4TN
3.00-6.00pm Booking: Sarah Perry (not open yet)

No one walks the same. We all know that. We recognise out friends from far away by the distinctive pattern of their walk. In fact we don’t do anything the same. It’s the very stuff of acting: how does this character behave in, respond to and move through their life?
A major player in everything we do is the pelvis. It is the engine for movement with the biggest muscles in the body driving it, has a central role in sexuality and is a crucial player in both stabilisation and powerful action. The pelvis is a bit like a basin balancing on the ball-like ends of two sticks. The base of our sinuous spine forms its centre piece, and its range of gyratory movement offers enormous possibility for nuanced variation. Exactly how we habitually move the pelvis (or don’t!) is fundamental to who and how we are, so becoming aware of our own patterns  and discovering the ability to change and play with those patterns can indeed be transformatory.
We will use some deep, slow, detailed lessons from the Feldenkrais Method to begin to feel and open up possibilities and play some little games to see what that does and what new characters and responses we can find as a result.

Victoria will also be presenting at the Global Improvisation Initiative Symposium on 16th May 2019. It is a 4-day Symposium organised with Improbable Theatre Company. Info and  tickets here

FOR RUNNERS:

BRAIN TRAINING FOR RUNNING TECHNIQUE with The Feldenkrais Method
This course is finished now – but doesn’t stop you doing it in 4-8 one-to-ones or sharing sessions with a friend.
Being able to run further or faster involves strength and endurance training. Of course it does. However, being able to run more easily, economically and without injury is not only a matter of strength it is also a matter of how you do it. read more here: http://www.feldenkraisworks.co.uk/workshops-in-running-technique/#more-417
