Join Jennifer & Rangimarie for a series of monthly workshops to expand your postural awareness, and all round somatic bodily connection. Each month will be guided with a new focus.
These workshops are an introduction to Movement Intelligence-Bones for Life 1 program. You will learn self-help tools to find postural correction through movement orientated somatic education. A seven-metre wrap is used as an exo-skeleton, establishing a clear axial line of the spine for exploring a safe dynamic movement in space. Partner work, walls and the floor will be utilised to stimulate isometric resistance and rhythmic vibration. Each month there will be a different area we will focus on (see topics schedule bellow).
Movement Intelligence is a training system for dynamic postural re-education and mind-body suppleness. It has been developed by Dr. Ruthy Alon, based on Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais’ approach to somatic learning. Ruthy has become an elder and mentor to students in over 30 countries and her work is respected worldwide.
