The Art of Being in Motion with Helen Poynor and Shelagh O'Neill
Sept 28th - 30th 2018
Friday 2.00pm - Sunday 5.15pm
Please note: this is a rescheduling of the March workshop postponed due to extreme weather conditions.
The dynamic collaboration between Helen and Shelagh continues interweaving Feldenkrais Awareness through Movement lessons with non-stylised movement explorations. A chance to delve deeper and expand the horizons of your movement practice. The subtle kinaesthetic investigations of the Feldenkrais Method® enrich creative expression revealing new possibilities for an embodied encounter with the natural world.
The Feldenkrais Method generates flexibility of body and mind, in a focused, relaxed and often surprising way. The sequences of movements work like a physical riddle - as each new movement is repeated and explored, new clarity is found and unaccustomed movement relationships emerge. Your habits and assumptions are challenged and you find new solutions. Attention, curiosity and awareness combine to engage your capacity for on-going change.
The Friday afternoon will be spent inside exploring the interconnection between the two approaches. The next two days will combine studio practice and moving in response to the changing tidal landscapes under the chalk cliffs at Beer Head and the ancient trees on a nearby hill-fort. See www.nicefeldenkrais.co.uk for information on Shelagh's practice.
