“The real way is to go within yourself and watch your own body from there, from the interiormost of your being. Then it is a tremendous joy … just to see its functioning, its ticking.” Osho
The Feldenkrais Method is based on the understanding that individuals develop and maintain habitual ways of movement that cause stress in the body. This has physical and psychological effects and results in suppressed body awareness. This bodymind split allows imbalance to increase allowing chronic ill health to become embedded in the system. The combination of the Feldenkrais movements with specially selected awareness techniques, wakes us up to our own lack of body awareness, which is the beginning of the journey to a relaxed flowing bodymind.
“The first thing to be understood is, to be aware of one’s unawareness. That is the only beginning possible. If one becomes aware of one’s unawareness, then things begin to change. So be attentive of your inattentions.” Osho
WHY ATTEND THIS COURSE?
Would you like to dance more freely without self-consciousness – be more relaxed and at home in your body? Would you like to be free of stiffness and aches and pains? Do you want to develop a deeper sensitivity to the messages from your body and start to let go of recurring negative emotions and patterns that are messing with your relationships? Feldenkrais Awareness can do all this and more.
“This body-work was discovered by Moshe Feldenkrais. It is soft energy work and it will help you to feel how to flow more easily, how to flow and not to freeze. And once this knack is understood, life takes on a totally different color, a different hue.
A frozen life is almost dead. A flowing life…. It is almost like when a river is frozen: even to call it a river is not right, because river means rivering; river means a process. This patch of ice is not a river. When it starts flowing, melting, it becomes a river. And the moment the river flows, it is reaching closer and closer to the ocean.
Energy flowing is always moving closer to the divine. Energy not flowing is not moving towards anywhere. In that no-movement, in that stagnancy, one becomes dull, one loses one’s flavour, one’s glory, one’s fragrance.” Osho

"The body is your friend; it is not your enemy. Listen to its language, decode its language, and by and by, as you enter into the book of the body and you turn its pages, you will become aware of the whole mystery of life. In condensed form, it is in your body. Magnified a millionfold, it is all over the world.” - Osho
