Event description

Description

This workshops is designed to introduce mental health professionals to the Feldenkrais method of neuro-muscular re-education.

The Feldenkrais method is a gentle and effective approach to improving quality of life. Like therapy, this work is based on trust that – given an opportunity – a person will naturally learn and trend towards what’s better for them. It can be thought of as unconditional positive regard expressed through touch and movement. By becoming more aware of how they move, each person’s movement habits naturally improve resulting in better self regulation, more freedom of movement and more balanced psychological and emotional states.

This is a free event, space is limited. If you can't make it, please let us know in advance to allow another person to take your spot.

If you can't make it, signup to hear about the next workshop.
