Feldnekrais Classes - Acrobatics and Dance

Acrobatics and Dance

For movement artists to achieve long and fruitful relationships with their craft requires an ongoing and ever-evolving relationship to motor learning. Whether your practice is professional or recreational, Feldenkrais offers a way to hone your movement learning process and access your full expressive potential while reducing pain and injury. With the aid of this method, you can find a way of practicing your discipline, whether that be aerial acrobatics or ballet, that best suits your unique body and nervous system- and that brings you joy!

Feldenkrais Classes - Hypermobility

Hypermobility

Hypermobility, whether a result of diagnosed Ehlers Danlos Syndrome or manifesting separately, comes with a unique set of challenges for the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. With the increased risk of soft tissue injury even in everyday activities, building body awareness and movement skills is crucial. By working with gentle, low-risk movements, focussing on the “how” of movement rather than a goal-oriented end result, Feldenkrais can help us find more options for healthy, enjoyable movement while reducing underlying pain.

Queer Community Ally

Queer Community

For those of us who are of queer identity or experience, seeking care of any sort can be frought with anxiety. Will my gender identity be seen and respected? Is it ok for me to talk about my partner or relationships with a new provider? Will my body be treated as whole and valid? Am I at risk of violence? This can create tension with and disconnection from caring for our physical selves, on top of that which results from dysmorphia or previous trauma. Feldenkrais offered by a queer (trans enby) practitioner is a way to feel into physical self-care that is nonjudgmental, non-goal-oriented, and entirely self-directed. For trans siblings, increased positive connection to physical movement can alleviate some of the heavy psychological load that dysmorphia sets on us. For all queer community, this work will aid you in gaining greater awareness of your singular way of inhabiting the world.
