The first in our series of 4 seasonal Feldenkrais Masterclasses with Ed.
 
Winter is the time when we retreat, into our homes, and into our skins.

It is a reflex reaction to the cold and the dark. It makes sense.
As humans we often 'retreat' into ourselves. In movement we call this flexion. In life we have habits which help us and habits that hinder us; 'flexion' is good when we need it to protect ourselves, but if it becomes a compulsive response to anxiety in life then we may be storing up an increasingly poor idea of posture.

This Winter-time Masterclass will deal predominantly with human flexion or how curling up 'mindfully' can create the space for the opposite of flexing which is extending. How is it that you can stand up for yourself? Can you use your instinctive desire to curl and protect yourself to actually stand up to the world?

The workshop will include a short talk by Ed on this subject to set the scene and then two Awareness Through Movement lessons, leaving time for some questions and a short break.

Look out for the next three seasonal sessions, coming up in 2020:

Sunday 17th May 2020 - Spring

Sunday 26th July 2020 - Summer

Sunday 18th October 2020 - Autumn
