Workshop Details

“How can we enhance our mind-body potential to embody our best selves in all the spheres of our lives?” ask Mia Segal and Leora Gaster. “Dr. Moshé Feldenkrais’ Mind Body Studies can clarify your own, unique connections of thought and action, and can help guide you to your optimal well-being and self-expression.”
In this workshop, the leaders will show how awareness of your movements is directly connected to your thought process and self-image, to open a world of new possibilities and potential. “Our brain is in charge of our thoughts. And through our body, we gather information from the world around us. Through our body we express and execute instructions from the brain, in a continuous cycle of interaction.”
Sessions will be structured in both group classes and partner work designed to demonstrate aspects of Feldenkrais’ Mind Body Studies. The group classes allow you to discover individually your own patterns of thought and movement. At the end of the week, you can take home a practical set of skills to apply to everyday situations, to make the most of the opportunities and challenges of life.
Due to the intensity of this workshop, the class schedule is as follows: Sunday evening, 8:30-9:30 p.m.; Monday-Thursday, 10 a.m.-12 p.m. and 2 p.m.-4 p.m.; Friday, 10 a.m.-12 p.m. The workshop will be documented via video recording. All participants must sign a waiver authorizing that participation will be recorded.
