Event description

Description

We are our habits. How we sit at our desk, how we reach for our phone, how we walk … Over time what we do every day becomes our story. They become automatic and we stop paying attention to the pain certain movements cause and the restrictions and immobility that come from imbalance and misalignment. Even if we can bear and grin the pain, physical restrictions also show up as limitations elsewhere in our life. Physical contractions are reflected and reflect our emotional pains, fears in life, and inflexible thinking, and diminish our capacity to live the life we want.

Have you had enough? Or pain, of struggling, of not being who you really are?

By paying attention and observing our patterns through simple movements, we come to understand the habitual movements and patterns that dominate our lives. Even better news, in this fun exploration, we learn how there are alternatives that are easier and more pleasant.

Would you like to drop your pattern of unease? Isn’t there enough challenge in life already?

Join Somatic Movement Educator Tara Eden for an experiential workshop to invite a different way of being, a more connected, whole, and free flowing way.


Somatic Educator Tara Eden is offering two Feldenkrais-based workshops.

Workshop 1 will focus on sensing the function of the the ribs and spine as an important relationship in movement.

Workshop 2 will focus on improving breathing and finding ease elsewhere in the body with understanding integration of the ribs and spine. You are invited to join either or both though we recommend attending both workshops as the second one will allow for a greater depth of work.

Tara will lead you through a series of Awareness Through Movement lessons to recognize and understand the habitual ways we strain unnecessarily and limit our mobility, ease, freedom, and potential. You will also learn through this experiential work how to organize your system for optimal movement. This workshop will clarify the spine and ribs, to define the link between our shoulders and hips.

Integrated BodyWork Sessions

Tara is also offering 90-minute one-on-one sessions. The Integrated BodyWork session is a way to go deeper into this work with Tara. In your own privacy, Tara will guide you through exploring the pains, mobility issues, or general feeling of unease you may be experiencing. Sessions are available Friday 24 August 2018.


Tara’s work is informed by the Feldenkrais Method. The first layer of this somatic practice is about improving physical mobility and ease in the mind. What is profound about this work through this process of self-learning, people become more empowered to make choices that fulfill their potential, reflect who they are, and allow them to be authentic in the world.

We often speak of “being present” and “self-knowing”. These words, and even the concept of inner peace are meaningless without the felt experience. We start by learning to listen to ourselves better, and to recognize sensations which are important messages from the nervous system.


About Tara Eden

Tara Eden has been exploring movement as medicine for as long as she can remember. She believes movement is the key to a feeling of personal freedom, empowerment, creativity and peace of mind.

For over 20 years Tara has studied various components of movement: Using the Body as a Tool of Expression and Communication (BFA in Theater), Movement for Self-Empowerment & Breath-led Movement (Ashtanga Practitioner) Movement as Therapy (Certificate in Dance/Movement Therapy), for Physical Fitness and Wellbeing (Yoga Teacher, RYT 500) and Awareness Through Movement™ (Feldenkrais Method™).

While based in New York City, Tara taught vinyasa and hatha yoga and brought it to the Hasidic Jewish community, inner city middle school, private high school, and private homes.

Tara’s fascination with the body prompted her to learn Thai Massage and years later, she relocated to Thailand to study with Master Pichest Boonthumme.

Today Tara practices Integrated Bodywork which helps the receiver illuminate their “dark areas” that create chronic tension (body & mind), facilitating deep relaxation, body awareness and more comfortable and efficient movement and/or breathing patterns.

Currently based in Chiang Mai, Thailand, Tara’s project constantly evolves and she teaches internationally workshops and classes in Somatic Movement, Awareness Through Movement™and Somatic Yoga (building asana from sensory awareness and functional body architecture), as well as offers private Awareness Through Movement™ lessons and Integrated Bodywork sessions.
