This is the first module of three that leads to a deeper understanding of how to move easily and effortlessly in daily or professional activity. All five workshops are practical and experiential so that you can explore ideas and adapt them to your particular issue with the teachers guidance. There is an order of learning which is inbuilt in the course structure though this can vary according to the participants needs and requests.
The work centres around the principle that our physicality and way of thinking operate as a whole system. They each influence the other and operate in unity. It begins by considering how we are supported on the ground and how much effort is required to remain upright.
Within this theme we will explore:
simple movements such as standing, sitting and walking
the importance of awareness and spotting potential harmful habits
the possible consequences of harmful habits
how the balance mechanism works and how to be centred
how to begin adapting this knowledge in everyday life
As we go through this material, we will also take time to look at common misconceptions about posture, sitting up straight, ‘getting it right’ amongst others.
To benefit the most from the work, you are encouraged to explore and reflect on your newly acquired knowledge in-between workshops. Each time we will begin with your comments, feedback and questions. They serve to guide the ongoing sessions, ensure understanding and keep the content relevant to your concerns.
What to bring
Wear clothing easy to move in and barefeet or socks.
