Feldenkrais Workshop

Hosted by the Edinburgh Zumba Healthy Socialising Group

"Through awareness we can learn to move with astonishing lightness and freedom--at almost any age..." Moshe Feldenkrais, D.Sc.

Does your back hurt? Do you have trouble focusing your attention? Have you stopped participating in activities you used to enjoy?

The Feldenkrais Method is for anyone who wants to reconnect with their natural abilities to move, think and feel. Whether you want to be more comfortable sitting at your computer, playing with your children and grandchildren, or performing a favorite pastime, these gentle lessons can improve your overall well being.

Learning to move with less effort makes daily life easier. Because the Feldenkrais Method focuses on the relationship between movement and thought, increased mental awareness and creativity accompany physical improvements. Everyone, from athletes and artists to administrators and attorneys, can benefit from the Feldenkrais Method.

We improve our well being when we learn to fully use ourselves. Our intelligence depends upon the opportunity we take to experience and learn on our own. This self learning leads to full, dynamic living.
